13 Jul IRINA SHAYK TALKS MOTHERHOOD & MARRIAGE AS COVER GIRL FOR HARPER’S BAZAAR SUMMER DIGITAL EDITION
Supermodel Irina Shayk stuns on Harper’s Bazaar’s July/August digital edition in her first feature since she and actor Bradley Cooper announced their split in June. The famously private Russian model, 33, never speaks about the relationship. Instead, she opens up about how important it is for her to be her authentic self with 2-year-old Lea de Seine, the daughter she and Cooper, 44, share.
“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, that you need to wear a longer skirt. No! I don’t believe in that,” she shared.
Being a great mom means making time to do the things you love, said the model.
“Why should you have to change who you are and how you feel just because you become a mother?” she added. “I really believe if you love something, you can prioritize your time. (Motherhood) is just an addition to your life.”
Though she and Cooper never wed, Shayk said the idea of walking down the aisle appeals to her.
“Do I believe in marriage?” she said. “Yes, of course. I’m not the kind of person who is against it.”
