Before finding love with NFL superstar Tom Brady, Irina Shayk was no stranger to high-profile relationships. The Russian supermodel has a dating history that reads like a who’s who of the entertainment and sports worlds.
Let’s take a stroll down memory lane and look at five of the most talked-about relationships Irina Shayk had before her current beau.
1. Valerio Morabito: The Italian Businessman
Early in her career, Irina Shayk was engaged to Italian businessman Valerio Morabito. Although they never made it down the aisle, their relationship was significant enough to lead to an engagement.
The couple eventually parted ways, citing Shayk’s burgeoning career as a reason for the split.

In 2007, Shayk entered into a relationship with Rob Bourdon, the drummer for the rock band Linkin Park. The couple was notoriously private, keeping their relationship out of the public eye.
They reportedly ended things in October of 2009, but neither has spoken publicly about the romance.

5. Bradley Cooper: The Hollywood Hunk
After meeting in 2015, Shayk and actor Bradley Cooper quickly became the talk of the town. The couple welcomed a daughter, Lea de Seine Shayk Cooper, two years into their relationship.
