Tom Brady and Irina Shayk are ‘continuing to date’ and still ‘romantically involved’ after her PDA-filled Italian getaway with her ex Bradley Cooper
Despite getting touchy-feely with her ex Bradley Cooper on a family vacation to Italy with their six-year-old daughter Lea, the supermodel, 37, and legendary quarterback, 46, are reportedly ‘still on as a couple.’
A source told TMZ that the pair are ‘continuing to date’ and ‘romantically involved.’
The confirmation comes just a week after she raised eyebrows for posting a shirtless photo of Cooper laying back on a kayak that’s positioned a short distance from the rocks along the shoreline.
The Star Is Born actor and director can be seen squinting from the sun dressed only in black shorts.
Shayk and Cooper, 48, were an item for more than four years when they decided to split in 2019.
While they were able to separate as a couple, they still have to maintain some semblance of a relationship in order to co-parent their little girl.
Shayk and Brady were first liked romantically when they reportedly hit it off at a mutual friend’s wedding on the Italian island of Sardinia in June.
Page Six reported the supermodel ‘threw herself’ at the seven-time Super Bowl champion while partying it up at the nuptials of billionaire art dealer Joe Nahmad.
But, a representative for Shayk shot down those claims, calling the description ‘totally fictional.’
The pair would be seen together on a number of occasions in July and August, including when the newly retired NFL quarterback was photographed affectionately caressing the cover girl’s face in his car at a red light.
Just about two weeks ago, Shayk and Brady were photographed leaving the same five-star hotel in London, England, five minutes apart, following a reported two-day romp.
The former New England Patriots and Tampa Bay Buccaneers star has only been back out on the singles market since October 2022, which is when he and ex-wife Gisele Bündchen announced they had finalized their divorce.
The former couple are co-parenting their son Benjamin, 13, and daughter Vivian, 10.
The legendary football star also has a son Jack, 16, from his previous relationship with actress Bridget Moynahan.
As for Cooper, he was most recently linked in the romance department to political staffer Huma Abedin, who had been a longtime aide of former U.S. Secretary Of State Hilary Clinton.
The reportedly met at the Met Gala in May 2022 after being introduced to each other by Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour, according to People.
Despite photos of her and Cooper looking cozy emerging on their trip, a source told DailyMail.com that the football legend ‘is not one bit jealous’ of their warm relationship as they co-parent their daughter.
The insider added that Tom is fully supportive of Irina spending time with her ex because he’s a ‘family man’ and ‘respects’ Irina for her and Bradley’s ability to peacefully co-parent Lea.
‘Tom thinks it is great that Irina has a co-parenting relationship with Bradley because Tom has his own co-parenting relationships with Gisele and Bridget, so he is not jealous one bit when Irina hangs out with Bradley and their child,’ said the insider.
‘Tom actually loves seeing it because Tom is such a family man, he knows what Irina is going through and respects her even more being a mother and dealing with all of that, because it isn’t easy.
‘It is actually attractive to Tom to see how strong of a woman and wonderful mom she is, he respects it.’
The source insisted that Tom and Irina are ‘doing great’ and have ‘no drama’ when it comes to each of them spending time with their exes.
‘[Co-parenting] will never be a cause of concern,’ they continued. ‘Tom is eating it all up, loves it, totally cool with it, it is as normal as possible.’
A separate source told DailyMail.com that Irina is helping to calm Tom’s ‘anxiety’ as he comes to terms with the fact that he will never return to the football field.
‘The new relationship is going so great for many reasons, but one main reason is that she takes his mind away from the field,’ they explained.
‘He misses the NFL, he misses playing but he isn’t going back, and thanks to Irina, his attention can be directed to her, and he is using the free time he has to build their relationship into something special.
‘Things are really working out and he loves how she came into his life just at the right time.
‘It is something that just feels natural, right, and comforting. He’s loving every minute of it and is only anticipating what could be next.’
Tom announced his retirement from the sport in February 22.
