Irina Shayk’s daughter taught her to love herself more
in his cover story Harper’s Bazaar‘s in her latest issue, Shayk talked about learning to love all her imperfections after the birth of her child, six-year-old Lea De Seine Shayk Cooper, whom she shares with actor Bradley Cooper.
She said: “My daughter is a big part of why I started to love myself even more. She will say, “I love Dad so much, I love Mom so much, I love Nana, I love Babulya…” who is my mother. Then he says, “And I love myself very much.” And I look at my daughter and think, “Wow, I wasn’t like this when I was six years old…”
Knowing how impressionable kids can be in this social media age, Shayk said she’s teaching her daughter values that aren’t focused on superficial things like “putting on masks, putting on makeup, washing her hair, putting on nice clothes.”
“Every time we send you to school, we say, ‘Just remember kindness and love.’ So I think that’s the real beauty.”
Irina Shayk shares a lesson she learned from her grandmother
Shayk also revealed how he learned these values, saying that his grandmother, whom he described as “his icon in basically everything,” instilled them in him.
The model recalled how much she admired him, especially his strength and positivity, and how friendly he was to nature.
Shayk shared, “She never wore makeup and used this stuff from the fridge like strawberries or cucumbers on her face. She was always so positive and grateful for every day and said, “Always be yourself. Be nice to people. That is true beauty.”
Now that she’s a mom, she doesn’t let that stop her from flaunting her femininity, no matter what people think or say.
She said: “Sometimes I wake up and feel cute and think, ‘Oh, should I put these pictures on social media?'” One voice says, “Oh, but people are going to say, ‘You’re a mom. ” And I say, “But what does that mean?”
She added, “You’re a mom, but that doesn’t mean you can’t go out in a little skirt or post a sexy picture.”
“He has no time for people’s opinions”
Lessons from her grandmother and daughter helped Shayk grow a tough skin, which she says helped her deal with the naysayers in the early days of her modeling career.
She recalled hearing comments like, “Oh my God, she doesn’t really look like a model. She’s not skinny, she’s too sexy, she’ll never be a model,” but she never thought about it.
“I don’t have time for people’s opinions. Why am I clicking and reading 2000 comments? I kind of don’t lean on him,” Shayk said, noting that balancing parenthood and her career took up all of her time.
Ultimately, all that matters to him is that his loved ones and family support him.
The mother of one of the children said: “I have friends, family. They love me and I know who I am. I don’t give lots and lots of SHI… you know that word, what people think of me.
Irina Shayk’s beauty tips
In another part of the interview, she gave advice on what to do when you don’t feel beautiful, calling such periods a “disconnect of inner energies.”
She said: “It’s really important to take time for yourself. It doesn’t matter if it’s 30 minutes or an hour; just reconnect, listen to your body, and think, “Why do I feel this way?” …Everyone should find something for themselves. Meditate, go to an infrared sauna. Just spend five minutes.”
Shayk also noted that the solution isn’t to do a quick facial, she said it’s to find out what’s wrong inside.
The model said: “It’s not about your looks; it’s what’s in you. This is how I would reconnect with myself and try to feel connected and belong within. And that’s how I feel outside too.”
