Aw, these two! Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk enjoyed a romantic evening in Santa Monica on Wednesday, April 17, where the duo looked happier than ever as they held hands during the cozy outing.

The actor opted for a red sweatshirt, jeans, flip-flops and a hat, while the model wore a fashionable trench coat with hoop earrings. Clearly, the A-listers — who share 2-year-old daughter, Lea — went on a much-needed date night.

Ever since The Hangover alum, 44, starred in A Star Is Born opposite Lady Gaga, 33, fans immediately thought that Bradley was leaving Irina for the pop star since they had so much chemistry on screen. However, the “Born This Way” crooner shut those rumors down quickly.

“First of all, social media, quite frankly, is the toilet of the internet and what it has done to pop culture is abysmal,” the blonde beauty told Jimmy Kimmel in February — days after her steamy “Shallow” duet with Bradley at the 2019 Oscars. “People saw love and guess what? That’s what we wanted you to see!”

She continued, “This is a love song … The movie A Star Is Born is a love story. We worked so hard. We worked all week on that performance. From a performance perspective, it was so important to both of us that we were connected the entire time … I mean, when you’re singing love songs that’s what you want people to feel.”

So, why doesn’t the 33-year-old Russian native talk about her man that much then? “I have a lot of friends who share a lot of their personal life on Instagram or social media, very publicly,” she told Glamour U.K. in February. “I admire it, and I think it’s great — but I think it’s all about personal choice.”

Since the brunette beauty is constantly in the public eye, she is happy with her decision to keep her family out of the spotlight. “Because my work requires me to be out there, I just decided my personal life will be quiet,” she revealed. “That’s why it’s called personal, it’s something for you and your family, and I feel happy with it.”

It’s great to see Irina and Bradley are still going strong!
