Irina Shayk has nothing but positive things to say about her ex-boyfriend Bradley Cooper, hailing him as an ‘amazing dad’ to their daughter. 

After four years of dating, Bradley, 46, and Irina, 35, split in 2019 not long after attending the Oscars together during his big year with A Star Is Born. 

They are parents to one daughter, Lea who turns four this month, and appear to have mastered the art of co-parenting ever since. 

However, Irina has some interesting thoughts on sharing parenting duties as she told Elle magazine: ‘I never understood the term co-parenting. When I’m with my daughter, I’m 100 percent a mother, and when she’s with her dad, he’s 100 percent her dad. Co-parenting is parenting.’ 

Heaping praise on her ex’s bond with Lea, she added that Bradley is ‘the most amazing dad’. 

Irina and Bradley have chosen not to discuss their break-up at length publicly leaving room for rumours to mount about the reason for their separation. 

The model stated: ‘My past relationship, it’s something that belongs to me, and it’s private.

‘It’s just a piece of my inner self that I don’t want to give away. I don’t read what is out there. Honestly, I’m too busy raising a child. If they want to write articles [about me], they’re doing their job. I’m concentrating on my life and my friends. The rest is just noise.’ 

Last year, Bradley shared an insight into his life as a dad during the pandemic. 

The Oscar-nominated actor told Interview magazine: ‘I’m with my daughter and my mother and my two dogs, and we have not left the house. 

‘My mother is going to be 80, and she has a colostomy bag, so I can’t let anybody in the house. And I can’t leave the house, because if she gets it, it’s over.

‘We live in a little townhouse, thankfully there’s a backyard. I’m running a one-man preschool. We get up, we do swim class in the bathtub.’ 

Since their split, Bradley and Irina have made sure to keep their dating life under wraps so it’s not clear if either have found love again.
