The two have actually known each other for years, but are now said to be seeing each other after pictures emerged of them together in France.

But if you’re still racking your brain for where you recognise her from then, this is everything you need to know about Irina Shayk:

She’s Russian

Irina is 35 years old and from Russia, though people often mistake her as being South American.

In an interview with the New York Post she said: “My father was dark skinned, because he was Tatar, sometimes Tatars can look Brazilian. I get my light eyes from my mother.”

Irina has one sister called Tatiana Petenkova. Growing up Irina played the piano and went to music school. Sadly Irina’s father passed away from pneumonia when she was 14 years old.

Irina has been a model for over 10 years

Irina began modelling in 2007 when she was announced as the face of Intimissimi. Since then her career has just excelled.

She’s been on the cover of Sports Illustrated, The Sunday Times Style, Cosmopolitan and 38 Vogue covers around the world.

Irina has walked in the runway for nearly every high fashion brand going including Burberry, Versace and Givenchy. Not only that but she’s also appeared in advertising campaigns for brands such as Marc Jacobs, Missoni and Jean Paul Gaultier.

Irina is also known for being a Victoria’s Secret Model, having walked in the 2016 show.

She’s got a number of famous exes and friends

Irina first began dating Cristiano Ronaldo in 2009 and they were together for six years before breaking up in 2015.

Her next famous ex is the one and only Bradley Cooper. They got together a few months after her breakup with Cristiano and were in a relationship until June 2019.

Thanks to her career as a seriously high profile model Irina is mates with model Stella Maxwell and the editor of British Vogue Edward Enninful.

Irina is a mother

Irina and Bradley had one child together whilst they were in a relationship. Irina gave birth to a baby girl called Lea De Seine in March 2017 and her name is inspired by the Seine river in France and Irina’s grandmother.

Irina is reportedly seeing Kanye West

So Irina and Kayne have actually known each other for a decade. She appeared in his music video “Power” in 2010 and can be first seen at the 21 second mark.

That same year Kanye included a lyric about her a song in which he said: “I wanna see Irina Shayk next to Doutzen”.

Then obviously they both had relationships and children with other people. However then in May this year it was rumoured the two had begun seeing each other.

This week pictures emerged of the two staying in France together at the Villa La Coste hotel in Provence. There’s been no official confirmation the two are in a relationship, however a source said “there is an interest from both sides”.

It’s believed Kanye hired the entire hotel and they stayed for three days. I wish my prospective dates hired a hotel to show me they were interested.
