The supermodel herself, however, is kind of over it. "My past relationship, it's something that belongs to me, and it's private," Shayk told Elle recently. "It's just a piece of my inner self that I don't want to give away." As for the constant whir of internet gossip? Well, she's a little pre-occupied. "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." Daniele Venturelli/WireImage Still, Shayk says that Cooper is "the most amazing dad" to the former couple's nearly 4-year-old daughter Lea. But the term "co-parent" isn't something the model can get behind. Irina Shayk Reunited with Bradley Cooper in a Sheer Dress "I never understood the term co-parenting," she explained. "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." OK, fair. Cooper and Shayk were together for four years before their 2019 split. "I think we've been very lucky to experience what we had with each other," Shayk told British Vogue following the breakup. "Life without B is new ground."
