Supermodel Irina Shayk and actor Bradley Cooper were caught engaging in some serious PDA in New York City on Sunday night, confirming previous rumors that the two may be romantically involved. Speculation that the 40-year-old “Silver Linings Playbook” actor and “Sports Illustrated” cover model were more than friends surfaced last month, when the two were spotted attending Broadway’s “Finding Neverland” in April.
An inside source told E! News that the couple had been “hanging out” before the pair was spotted together on May 3. The source claimed the two “have a lot of chemistry with each other,” but that they were not considered a serious couple yet. They are “keeping things light” and just “having a great time,” the source said.

The two were seen kissing before attending a showing of “Hamilton” on Broadway. They were laughing, cuddling and appeared to be enjoying each other’s company.
This is the perfect timing for the pair, since both are newly single. Shayk called it quits with soccer celebrity Cristiano Ronaldo after five years together in January, and Cooper broke up with 23-year-old model Suki Waterhouse in March after two years together. Cooper has been linked with actresses Jennifer Aniston, Zoe Saldana and ex-wife Jennifer Esposito.
Shayk was born in Russia and has been modeling for more than 10 years. Shortly after her breakup with Ronaldo, she told E! News that the quality she valued most in a partner was loyalty.
"What I'm looking for in a man is—I think I love honest men and I love a man who is loyal to women," she said. "I think this is [the] most important thing in [a] man."
