Supermodel and single mom-of-one Irina Shayk hasn’t let her recent split from actor and director Bradley Cooper get her down. In fact, it seems Irina is loving her life as a single mom and may even be shining brighter than ever as she models around the globe and dotes on the former couple’s two-year-old daughter, Lea De Seine.
Since the split in June, Irina has been spotted taking Lea for walks all over NYC. The private mom has chosen not to share images of her little one on social media, but she did reveal in a recent interview with Harper’s Bazaar that their daughter is named after Irina’s paternal grandmother, Galina. The second part of her name comes from the famous river that runs through Paris.
During the interview, Irina shared that she isn’t into the idea of changing her identity after having a child. “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. How is it that people think of this idea? Why should you have to change who you are and how you feel just because you become a mother? I’m like, tell me why. Tell me one reason! I don’t believe in that. I don’t understand why.”
Judging by her recent pics, we’d say Irina is being true to herself and loving life as a single mama and model, short skirts and all.
