Irina Shayk and Bradley Cooper seem to have perfected the art of keeping their personal and professional lives separate. The Sports Illustrated model and The Hangover actor have managed to, for the most part, keep their relationship and family out of the spotlight.

However, the couple’s efforts to keep their relationship under wraps haven’t stopped others from wondering just what’s going on between them.

1. They’ve been very protective of their daughter.

The couple’s only child, Lea De Seine Shayk Cooper, was born in March of 2017. One year in, the couple have not shared any pictures of her on social media and have rarely spoken about her to the media, something Ellen DeGeneres pointed out when Cooper appeared on her show in May 2017.

“I don’t know if you know this, but you have a baby,” Ellen said as the interview began. “When you get home, you should look for it. It’s somewhere in your house.”

“I know you don’t wanna talk about the baby,” she added later in the interview.

However, according to sources, the couples is all the way on board with parenthood. After their daughter Lea was born, sources again provided a glimpse into how the couple is feeling and how the new addition has improved their relationship.

“[Shayk] is in bliss. Life is good. She can't keep her eyes off her little girl,” a source told E! News. “[Cooper] is just in love. They are both very protective over their baby and are only letting a few close family and friends to see their baby.”

“Bradley and Irina as a couple are doing really good and have gotten even closer since the baby was born,” added another source.

2. Cooper doesn't talk about Shayk.

In a May 2017 interview with Howard Stern, Cooper opened up about why he feels the need to keep his relationship so private.

“Why do you act like you’re not in a relationship? Is that a PR move?” Stern asked, to which Cooper responded, “I just don’t talk about certain things.”

When Stern asked why Cooper brought his mom to a recent red-carpet party instead of his girlfriend, Cooper ironically remarked about how the paparazzi can be so “great” to famous couples.

“You’re right, it’s so great to take someone you’re with to a place where 100 people are gonna photograph you every step you make, and then ask you tons of questions, and then rip it apart the next day,” said Cooper.

Shayk, who has appeared in Sports Illustrated multiple times, has kept her social media free of romantic or family-themed posts. Instead, she chooses to keep the focus on her modeling career and photo shoots, as seen on her Instagram feed.

Meanwhile, Cooper told Ellen DeGeneres that he does not have any social media.

4. They kept their pregnancy private.

Although neither Shayk nor Cooper commented on their pregnancy ahead of their daughter’s birth, a source told E! News how the couple was feeling as they prepared for their daughter to arrive.

“Irina and Bradley are so excited to be parents,” said the source. “They have already picked a few names they like. They know the sex but are still deciding between some names.”

 

5. Losing her post-baby weight was important to Shayk.

In the midst of adjusting to motherhood, Shayk was also hard at work getting her body into shape.

“She has done a mix of cardio, weights and eating really clean,” a source told E! News. “She has been working with Bradley Cooper’s trainer as well as a few other fitness gurus that been helping her.”

“Bradley and Irina have many things in common and fitness is one thing. They both work out together and take care of themselves,” they added. “She has jobs that are coming up that she is contracted for soon, so getting back in tip-top shape is a priority.”

6. Shayk dated Cristiano Ronaldo before Cooper.

Cooper is not the first partner Shayk has worked hard to keep secret. In a 2011 interview with David Letterman, Shayk stayed mum about whether she was dating soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo.

“Well, David, I hope you like my pictures […] more than this one,” Shayk said after Letterman held up a picture of Ronaldo and asked whether he was her boyfriend. Shayk then pointed to her Russian background to explain her skills in secrecy.

“You know I’m from Russia, David, right? So, it’s like KGB, Russian spy,” Shayk said. “We can keep the secrets, Russians. So, be careful.”

Shayk dated Ronaldo for five years, prior to her relationship with Cooper.

“[Shayk] finds it totally inappropriate that he’s seeing so much of her at such odd hours,” said the source. “She’s very threatened by the situation.”

9. They’re still in love and hope to expand their family.

Cooper and Shayk both appear to desire a large family with multiple kids. “Bradley and Irina love each other so much and this is not gonna be the only kid—there will be a few more after this one,” a source told E! News in 2016 before their daughter Lea was even born.

It seems these hopes haven’t changed since then, as their relationship is still going strong and they’ve both thrived as parents. “They have date nights and spend romantic time together,” said another source, about a year later. “The spark between them is still very strong. Bradley is crazy for Irina. He’s madly in love with her.”

“[Shayk] loves being a mother,” the source added. “[They are] the most loving and warm parents.”

10. Are they engaged?

Despite years of rumors, it’s still unclear whether Cooper and Shayk are engaged. Engagement rumors began to swirl in late 2016 when Shayk was spotted wearing what appeared to be an engagement ring as she left a Los Angeles spa. The ring drew comparisons to the one used by Prince William to propose to Kate Middleton.

As of this month, a potential engagement between the two stars remains unconfirmed.
