Irina Shayk says she strives to be herself as a mother

Irina Shayk, 33, and Bradley Cooper, 44, broke up in early June, but one month prior, while getting ready for the Met Gala, Irina said in an interview with Harper's Bazaar that she still believes in marriage.

Irina Shayk is notably reticent when it comes to her personal life, so it's little surprise that she's kept quiet about her recent split with Bradley Cooper. Regarding her view toward social media, the star said she now refuses to read comments online because many of them are quite vitriolic and mean-spirited.

During the interview, which was conducted before the news of her breakup was released, the famously private model told BAZAAR.com that she understood the curiosity about her high-profile relationship. I really don't... Why should you have to change who you are and how you feel just because you become a mother?

"I'm not flawless", she tells Harper's Bazaar for their Summer Digital issue. "Tell me one reason!" she added.

And Irina insisted that any potential suitors who want to catch her attention should just send her a tomato plant rather than traditional flowers. "If you really love you for who you are, I think you can do anything".

Speaking of the public interest her love life, Shayk told Harper's BAZAAR US that she understands why people want to know what's going on - "I think it's just human beings: if you can not have it, you want to have it", she said. "They want what's least disruptive for their baby", revealed a source. "You have to learn how to put a nail in the wall, how to hang the curtains. It's curiosity, I guess", she added.

"There is no real challenge", the model said of motherhood. "Nobody's sending letters to anyone anymore", she said. I don't believe in that. Tell me one reason!' I don't believe in that. "I don't understand why". "Women can raise the kids, women can do the job and when she's back, she can cook and clean and do the heavy work too!"
