After their break-up in 2019, Bradley Cooper and model Irina Shayk left everyone shocked. However, a new sighting of them spending the Thanksgiving weekend together made them seem like they never really separated.


"Limitless" actor Bradley Cooper and his ex-girlfriend Irina Shayk always seemed like the perfect couple. They began dating in 2015 and went solid for four years, unfortunately breaking things off in 2019. 

They share a daughter Lea De Seine, and the two have been co-parenting peacefully since their split. And while fans always thought their relationship was about their daughter, recent photos of them have sparked reconciliation rumors.

In November 2021, emerging photos showed the duo walking arm-in-arm in New York City's West Village. The images captured the pair in winter clothes. Shayk had a white button-up shirt, loose-fitting pants, and a full-length black coat.

She completed the look with a pair of dark sunglasses, a neat bun, and a mask on her face. On the other hand, Cooper donned a black hoodie, blue jeans, and a classic navy pea coat. 

However, their breezy midday stroll was just one of the duo's many times to spend quality time together. After their spotting in New York in mid-November, the couple spent Thanksgiving together later that month.


Page Six reports that the Russian model was spotted leaving her apartment in New York City and heading to Cooper's place where the "A Star Is Born" actor spent the holiday with Lea, four. 

However, Shayk did not spend the night as photos showed her returning to Cooper's house the following morning to pick up their daughter. A few days later, father, mother, and daughter reunited for a fun family outing to "The Nutcracker."

Sources say that "The A-Team" actor picked up Shayk and Lea in his G-Wagon and drove them to the ballet. Cooper and Shayk looked dapper in their winter attire, with cooper donning a grey coat over blue jeans and Shayk in a long black coat, paired with matching black boots.

Later, they met up outside the venue in the company of "The Princess Diaries" actress Anne Hathaway, her husband Adam Schulman, and one of their sons. Hathaway had on a cute yellow coat while her husband kept warm in a beanie. 


The "Burnt" actor and the Sports Illustrated model enjoyed themselves as their daughter strolled between them. In one photo, the parents held their daughter's hands and swung her around. A source says:

"They looked very happy. Everybody was smiling and giggling."


The source also clarified further, saying that the duo's interaction was not romantic. After the play, the families reportedly went to Felice for an early dinner. 

Following their numerous outings, fans are almost sure that the two are looking to rekindle their old flame, and people could not be more excited for them. 

To fans' excitement, the pair's Thanksgiving weekend and the New York City stroll are only some of the many occasions that the two spend time together.

In December 2021, the Oscar nominee attended the "Nightmare Alley" premiere in New York with Shayk by his side and was grateful for her support.

Us Weekly reports that Cooper always wants to spend time with his family whenever he breaks from acting. He and Shayn often have dinners and enjoy fun, friendly kid activities that involve their daughter. 

And while fans cross their fingers hoping for a reconciliation, the source says the duo now focuses more on raising their daughter and having an "amazing co-parenting relationship."

Much to the chagrin of the duo's fans, who have held hope for the "Serena" actor and his "Hercules" actress to get back together, a source confirmed to DailyMail that that might only be wishful thinking. The source said:

"They are a very close family. But they are not officially back together."

Cooper and Shayk first sparked dating rumors in April 2015 after spending plenty of quality time in New York. They became relationship official after a PDA-filled trip to London the following month.


They, however, chose to keep their romance private. In November 2016, the model unveiled a baby bump during a Victoria's Secret Fashion Show.

They welcomed their little girl in March 2017, and Cooper could not hold back his gratitude at finally holding the title of "father." A year into parenting, he opened up about fatherhood to National Public Radio, as Us Weekly reports:

"Having a child and having a family of my own — which is a miracle and something I've always dreamt of — has opened me up, even more, I guess, to the day, and to be present."

In 2019, however, the enviable relationship seemed to take a hit after rumor mills began spinning following Cooper and Lady Gaga's on and offscreen chemistry while shooting "A Star Is Born."

Despite Cooper and the "Just Dance" songstress' relationship being non-romantic, the noise surrounding their chemistry was too much for Shayk, and in June that same year, the couple called it quits. 

Following their split, the duo partook in creating a balanced schedule for their daughter, and despite their busy schedules, have managed to spend quality time with their little girl.

And while they have managed to strike a balance between being Hollywood and runway stars and being parents, Shayk still has not embraced the word "co-parenting."

She believes that bringing up their child together is still parenting whether a couple is together or split up. She opened up about her sentiments on the March issue of Elle, as reported by People:

"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."


She also praised her ex for being "the most amazing dad." Shayk is, however, not the only one who showered their ex with praise regarding parenting. Cooper shared how grateful he is for his friendly relationship with Shayk

And while a lot has happened since the duo split up, spending so much time together may be just the beginning of a new relationship. Fans are hopeful that the impending good news will not be a long time coming.
