Shayk and Cooper have been known to have a notoriously private relationship, after they first started dating in the spring of 2015 and welcomed daughter Lea De Seine Shayk Cooper together in March 2017.

“I think it’s all about personal choice,” she told Glamour UK in her new cover story. “Because my work requires me to be out there, I just decided my personal life will be quiet. That’s why it’s called personal, because it’s something for you and your family, and I feel happy with it.”
