Inside Irina Shayk's star-studded romantic life: The model is a mother to one!
Irina Shayk is one of the few models who've managed to gain mainstream visibility in a short span. Born to a coal miner and a kindergarten music teacher, in an oblivious little Russian town called Yemanzhelinsk, Shayk's rise to become an A-lister is commendable.
Born Irina Valeryevna Shaykhlislamova on January 6, 1986, her journey into the modeling industry started after she won the Miss Chelyabinsk beauty pageant in 2004. Shayk considers her 2011 Sports Illustrated cover shoot to be the stepping stone in her successful and fast-soaring career.
Inside Irina Shayk's Star-Studded Dating History!
Is Irina better known for her romantic career? The answer to the question might be subjective, but the model's years-long association with some famous faces has definitely gained precedence over her professional feats in the eyes of the media.
The Sports Illustrated model prefers her personal matters out of the spotlight but again, dating Hollywood heartthrobs doesn't really guarantee much privacy. Irina's dating career starts off with Italian businessman Valerio Morabito, who she dated early in her career. The pair were reportedly engaged at one point.
Irina's before-fame romances also include Linkin Park drummer Rob Bourdon. The duo's low-profile relationship reportedly began in 2007 and ended in 2009. Following her split from the drummer, the Victoria Secret's model started dating fellow model model Arthur Sales.
Shayk and Sales' budding romance seemingly came to an end amid the model's alleged affair with Fifa President Sepp Blatter. Although, the model adamantly denied any involvement, several tabloids named Irina as one of the many lovers in Blatter's life.
Shayk's dating profile gained an upper hand in the model's life when she was linked with soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo. The twosome reportedly met on the set of an Armani ad in 2010 and started dating shortly after. Ronaldo was also the first man Irina ever went official with.
The model and Soccer player's notoriously low-key romance lasted nearly five years. Shayk's rep confirmed the duo's split in 2015, and although no explanation behind the confirmation was given, there have been several speculations over the years, including the rumor that the duo broke up because of infidelity on Ronaldo's part.
Irina's ex, Ronaldo, has since been in a high-profile relationship with Spanish model Georgina Rodríguez, with whom he shares two kids. Irina didn't stay single for long and was right back in the dating pool after her famous breakup.
The model's next romance was as famous if not more. She dated actor Bradley Cooper from 2015 to 2019. And during the period, the couple even welcomed their firstborn, Lea. The estranged parents are committed to raising their daughter amicably and share a cordial bond so far.
Who is Irina Shayk Dating?
The Sports Illustrated model's dating headlines have simmered down over the years. Irina says that being a single working mother has changed her priorities and dating habits. Although Shayk hasn't sparked any notable relationship news since her split from Cooper, she isn't quite done with dating.
Shayk was linked with art dealer Vito Schnabel in 2020. The pair were spotted hanging out when the rumor broke but it only remained a rumor. A source later revealed that the art dealer always had the hots for the Russian model. She was later famously linked with Kanye West, with whom she had worked several times in the past.
An insider even confirmed that the pair were in a very early stage of dating. The bombshell news came shortly after West divorce drama with Kim Kardashian, giving all more reason to believe in the dating rumor. Shayk was rumored to have rekindled her romance with Bradley after the pair were spotted arm-in-arm in NYC.

"Irina is very happy to spend time with Bradley. She very much loves him," an insider explained before sharing that the pair were nothing more than friends, and doting parents to their daughter. "She feels very proud how they have been able to get along and co-parent their beautiful daughter," the source explained.
The Sports Illustrated model's love life has become the talk of the town again after a source revealed Irina's alleged crush on Tom Brady. The source alleged that the stunning Russian model "threw herself" at the newly single retired quarterback at Joe Nahmad and Madison Headrick's wedding last week.
"She followed him around all weekend," the celebrity spy reported, adding, "She was throwing herself at him." Brady, 45, who is fresh out of his split from Gisele Caroline Bündchen, is reportedly not interested in Irina romantically.
