Before connecting, the duo had high-profile relationships of their own. Shayk famously dated Bradley Cooper — with whom she shares daughter Lea — before they split in 2019. Brady, for his part, was married to Gisele Bündchen whom he divorced in 2022. Brady and Bündchen are the proud parents of son Benjamin and daughter Vivian. (Brady also shares son Jack with ex Bridget Moynahan.)

Both Shayk and Bündchen were Victoria’s Secret models at different points in their careers. Bündchen got her start with the lingerie brand in 1999 and was a staple in the iconic fashion show for years. In 2006, she left the brand after seven years.

Shayk, for her part, primarily worked as a catalog model for Victoria’s Secret. However, she did walk in the company’s fashion show in 2016 while she was six months pregnant with her and Cooper’s daughter.
