  • Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk’s relationship has been a point of conversation this year, with rumours circulating after the release of his and Lady Gaga’s Academy Award winning film, A Star Is Born.

    After reports that the couple had been spending time apart, it was confirmed by PEOPLE that Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk had split after four years of dating.

    Since the announcement of the split, the couple have become a conversation topic for the custody arrangements, but it was Irina Shayk’s words about marriage that made news this week.

    ‘Do I believe in marriage?,’ she questioned in a recent interview with Harper’s Bazaar, her first since the break up. ‘Yes, of course. I’m not the kind of person who is against it.’

    Going on to talk about motherhood, she continued: ‘You have to be really truly yourself for your kids, otherwise you’re living in a lie. Tell me one reason why, just because you’re a mother, you need to wear a longer skirt. No! I don’t believe in that. I really don’t.’

    ‘There is no real challenge. I really believe if you love something, you can prioritize your time. [Motherhood] is just an addition to your life.’

    Forever bowing down to you, Irina Shayk.
