Tom Brady and Irina Shayk’s relationship has gone from strength to strength since their first romantic relationship in late July 2023.
Although the supermodel, 37, and legendary quarterback, 46, bumped into her ex Bradley Cooper during a family vacation in Italy with their six-year-old daughter Lea, they are reportedly “still a couple.”
A source told TMZ that the couple “continue dating” and are “romantically linked.”
The confirmation comes just a week after she raised eyebrows for posting a shirtless photo of Cooper lying on a kayak not far from the rocks along the shore.

New Romance: Tom Brady and Irina Shayk’s relationship has gone from strength to strength since their first romantic relationship in late July 2023
Shayk and Cooper, 48, had been a couple for more than four years when they decided to split in 2019.
Although they were able to separate as a couple, they still have to maintain semblance of a relationship in order to co-parent their baby girl.
Shayk and Brady first met romantically when they reportedly hit it off at a mutual friend’s wedding on the Italian island of Sardinia in June.
Page Six reported the supermodel threw herself on the seven-time Super Bowl winner as she threw a boisterous party at the wedding of billionaire art dealer Joe Nahmad.
But a representative for Shayk dismissed those claims, calling the description “completely fabricated.”
The pair were spotted together several times in July and August, including when the newly retired NFL quarterback was photographed lovingly stroking the cover girl’s face in his car at a red light.
Just under two weeks ago, Shayk and Brady were photographed leaving the same five-star hotel in London, England, five minutes apart after reportedly hanging around for two days.
The former New England Patriots and Tampa Bay Buccaneers star has only been back on the singles market since October 2022, when he and ex-wife Gisele Bundchen announced they had finalized their divorce.

The former couple takes care of their son Benjamin (13) and daughter Vivian (10) together.
The legendary soccer star also has a son, Jack, 16, from his previous relationship with actress Bridget Moynahan.
As for Cooper, he was most recently linked in the love department to political aide Huma Abedin, who had been a longtime adviser to former US Secretary of State Hilary Clinton.
The two reportedly met at the Met Gala in May 2022 after being introduced to each other by Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour People.
Although there were photos of her and Cooper feeling comfortable on their trip, a source told DailyMail.com that the football legend is “not the least bit jealous” of their warm relationship while they co-parent their daughter.
The insider added that Tom fully supports Irina spending time with her ex because he is a “family man” and “respects” Irina for her and Bradley’s ability to peacefully co-parent Lea.
“Tom thinks it’s great that Irina has a co-parenting relationship with Bradley because Tom has his own co-parenting relationships with Gisele and Bridget, so he doesn’t feel the slightest bit jealous when Irina hangs out with Bradley and their kid,” the insider said.
“Tom really loves to watch it because Tom is such a family guy, he knows what Irina is going through and respects her even more as a mother and handling all of this because it’s not easy.”
“It’s actually appealing to Tom to see how strong a woman she is and how wonderful a mother she is, he respects that.”
The source insisted Tom and Irina are “doing great” and that there is “no drama” when it comes to spending time with their exes.
‘[Co-parenting] will never be a cause for concern,” they continued. “Tom eats it all, loves it, super cool with it, it’s as normal as can be.”

Another source told DailyMail.com that Irina is helping ease Tom’s “anxiety” as he comes to terms with the fact that he will never return to the football field.
“The new relationship is going so well for many reasons, but one main reason is that it distracts him from everyday life,” they explained.
“He misses the NFL, he misses playing but he’s not going back and thanks to Irina he can focus his attention on her and he’s using the free time he has to make their relationship something special.”
“Things are going really well and he loves how she came into his life at exactly the right time.”
“It’s something that just feels natural, right and comforting.” He’s enjoying every minute of it and just anticipating what might come next.”
Tom announced his retirement from the sport on February 22nd.
