Irina Shayk is on the older side of being a model, but that doesn’t mean she is limiting herself. In her third decade, she is looking better than ever before and is also accomplishing some personal milestones this year. Not only is she appearing in her first-ever Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in 2016, but she is also in talks of marriage and starting a family with Bradley Cooper, her Oscar-nominated boyfriend.
The Russian beauty spent the earlier part of November in Los Angeles with her boyfriend, but she is now off to Paris to take part in her first Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.
“She’s gearing up to walk in her first Victoria’s Secret show,” reports Daily Mail. “But Irina Shayk, 30, didn’t seem to be feeling any nerves as she made a late arrival to Paris on Tuesday. The Russian beauty was seen heading out of the Grand Palais in all black ensemble, whilst veteran Angel Alessandra Ambrosio opted for the same colour scheme across town.”
Just because this is her first time walking down the famed runway along with Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, and Gigi Hadid, Irina is no stranger to lingerie. She has been the face of Intimissimi, an Italian lingerie brand, for years now, shooting seductive campaigns with them. She also uploads bikini and underwear pictures regularly on her Instagram, showing that she is very proud of her body.

The Russian model spent Thanksgiving with girls who will also take part in Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2016, to make sure that she does not overdo in the food intake department.
That meant that she could not huddle around the Thanksgiving table with her boyfriend Bradley Cooper. But considering that they also did not spend the holidays last year together (and that had virtually no impact on her romance), this is nothing special to the Hollywood power couple.
Instead, the Oscar-nominated actor is also taking this time to advance his film career. He just signed another deal for a movie that might help him get closer to the golden statue.
“Bradley Cooper has signed on to star in the World War II drama Atlantic Wall as an American paratrooper operating behind enemy lines,” reports Variety. “Gavin O’Connor will direct from a Black List script by Zach Dean. Producers are Imperative Entertainment’s Dan Friedkin and Bradley Thomas, along with Madhouse Entertainment’s Adam Kolbrenner.”
“Bradley’s phenomenal track record speaks for itself,” one of the producers said. “He’s perfect to portray our complicated, often reluctant hero. We can’t imagine better creative partners.”
He’s also knee-deep in filming for A Star is Born, starring Lady Gaga, who, incidentally, is performing at this year’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. What a small world.
One thing that definitely seems to be on Bradley and Irina’s minds is marriage. The rumor has it that the couple is thinking about next steps as they also work on their respective careers.
“They are in an extremely happy place between the two of them,” a source said to E! News. “They have discussed marriage and kids.”
“They plan on going on a tropical vacation for the holidays together with their families and close friends,” the source continued. “Irina and Bradley like to live a private life.”
The thing that they will have to consider is that once Irina gets pregnant, she has to take a break from certain modeling jobs.
Do you think Bradley Cooper will take the time to fly to Paris to see Irina Shayk walk down the runway as a Victoria’s Secret model for the first time? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below!
