Irina Shayk has been in several long-term relationships in the public eye, but she believes that less is more when it comes to sharing her dating life with the world.
“Because my work requires me to be out there, I just decided my personal life will be quiet,” the model told Glamour U.K. in February 2019. “That’s why it’s called personal, because it’s something for you and your family and I feel happy with it.”
Shayk first sparked romance rumors with Cristiano Ronaldo after the twosome met in 2010. The former couple kept their romance quiet, but they offered a glimpse at their relationship when they worked together on a nude photo shoot for the June 2014 cover of Vogue Spain.
After five years of dating, Us Weekly confirmed that Shayk and Ronaldo split in January 2015.
Four months later, the Russia native was spotted with Bradley Cooper at a Broadway production of Finding Neverland. The duo made their relationship official when they shared a kiss in public that May.
Us confirmed in November 2016 that Cooper and Shayk were expecting their first child after the model walked in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show with a noticeable baby bump. They welcomed daughter Lea De Seine in March 2017. However, the pair called it quits in June 2019.
Following her split from the Hangover actor, Shayk remained optimistic that she would find her forever some day.
“Everyone looks at it differently,” she said in her cover story for the Harper’s Bazaar Summer Digital Issue in July 2019. “Do I believe in marriage? Yes, of course. I’m not the kind of person who is against it.”
Shayk reiterated that she even though she understood why others may be interested in her love life, she still preferred to keep her relationships on the down-low.
“I think it’s just human beings: if you cannot have it, you want to have it,” she added. “There’s a curtain there, you want to open the curtain. It’s curiosity, I guess.”
While Shayk and Cooper focused on coparenting their daughter together, she opened up about the highs and lows of their new normal.
“Life without B is new ground,” Shayk told British Vogue in January 2020. “It’s hard to find a balance between being a single mom and being a working woman and provider. Trust me, there are days I wake up and I’m like, ‘Oh, my God, I don’t know what to do, I’m falling apart.’”
After photos of Shayk spending time with Kanye West in France were published by the Daily Mail in June 2021, four months after the rapper’s split from Kim Kardashian, Us exclusively confirmed that they were an item.
“Kanye and Irina [are] dating,” a source revealed at the time. “They’ve been quietly seeing each other for a couple months.”
West and Shayk previously worked together in his 2010 music video for “Power,” two years before Shayk walked the runway in his Yeezy Paris Fashion Week show.
Scroll down for the model’s complete dating history:
Ronaldo and Shayk began dating after they met on the set of an Armani ad in 2010. The duo dated for five years before announcing their split in January 2015 amid rumors that Shayk didn’t get along with the professional soccer player’s mother.
“We can confirm Irina Shayk has ended her relationship to Cristiano Ronaldo of five years. She has been close with his family throughout the course of their relationship,” a rep for the model told Us in a statement at the time. “Any negative rumors with regards to Irina and the Ronaldo family are completely false, and have not been a factor in the cause of the spilt. Irina has no further comment at the time.”
The couple started dating in 2015 and made their red carpet debut at a Paris Fashion Week party one year later. They share a daughter, Lea De Seine, who was born in March 2017.
“I guess having a child, and having a family of my own — which is a miracle and something I’ve always dreamt of — has opened me up even more, I guess, to the day, and to be present.” Cooper shared about fatherhood in a September 2019 interview with NRP. “That’s the thing I want my daughter to have — I just always want her to feel loved.”
Cooper and Shayk split in June 2019. A source told Us that month that the former couple hadn’t “been getting along for a while” and “were not in a great place.”
Shayk was spotted out with the art dealer in New York in March 2020. “Vito has always been interested in Irina,” a source told Us, adding that they met a couple of years prior. “Vito is a very social person who likes to go out and have fun.”

“Irina and Kanye have been spending time together and getting to know one another,” a source told Us in June 2021. “He’s always thought she was beautiful and they’re both looking forward to seeing where this goes.”
News of their romance came shortly after Kardashian filed for divorce from West in February 2021 after six years of marriage.
