Popular model Irina Shayk, 34, said in an interview with Vogue magazine that she is “falling apart” while trying to find “a balance between a single mom and being a working woman and provider,” after divorce from Hollywood actor Bradley Cooper, 45.
Irina talks about Bradley in a superlative and says that it is difficult for her to reconcile business and private obligations now that she is a single mother to a three-year-old daughter, Lea.
“I think in all good relationships you bring your best and your worst – it’s just the nature of a human being. Two great people don’t have to make a good couple”, the model said to Vogue.

Since the day we met until now, my friendship with you has meant so much more than work.. And being chosen by you @Edward_Enninful to be on the March cover of @BritishVogue, is an honor. Thank you for making me a part of your vision, and always making me laugh, even when I wanted to cry while we did the interview:))) And thank you for your friendship @MertAlas @MacPiggott .. can’t wait to celebrate it with all of you ❤️ #BritishVogue @AliKavoussi
She continues: “I think we’ve been very lucky to experience what we had with each other. Life without B is new ground.”
It’s hard to find a balance between being a single mom and being a working woman and provider. Trust me, there are days I wake up, and I’m like, ‘Oh my god, I don’t know what to do, I’m falling apart’”, Irina said.
The model also revealed what scares men when it comes to her.
“I have a strong personality, and I definitely know what I want, and I think some men are scared of that. If somebody’s out of my life, they’re out of my life, and I really cut all the ties, you know? I think some people are really scared of this coldness. I also think not many people know that underneath this there’s a nice, sweet person who cries in interviews”, Irina explained.
Irina Shayk and Bradley Cooper share custody of the daughter, and both will live in New York.
