Kanye West and supermodel, Irina Shayk, were seen out and about in Provence on Tuesday, June 8, which happened to be the day he turned 44.
In photos shared by Dailymail, Kanye could not stop smiling as he and Irina, 35, took a romantic stroll in Provence, France, where they are staying at the luxury Villa La Coste boutique hotel together. This is Kanye West’s first public outing with a woman other than Kim Kardashian after their split.
Kim, 40, officially filed to divorce Kanye after almost 7 years of marriage in late February and was recently linked to CNN’s Van Jones.
Rumours of the pair’s romance began late last month, with reports that Kanye was ‘secretly’ dating the Russian supermodel, who shares a child with actor Bradley Cooper. As recently as last month, Irina was spotted in a DMX shirt designed by West in collaboration with Balenciaga.
In the pictures, the duo can be seen enjoying their getaway surrounded by the beautiful idyllic countryside. Uncharacteristically, Kanye even stopped to take a few pictures of Irina, as they appeared to be very comfortable around one another. It would seem that Kanye is already extremely fond of Irina, having chosen to spend his special day with the gorgeous model in a place that he holds close to his heart.
As Kanye was in France with Irina, Kim, who was home with their kids, posted a birthday message for Kanye that reads: “Happy birthday. Love you for life.”

Kim’s family members also wished Kanye a happy birthday via their respective accounts, with Khloe Kardashian, posting on Instagram, “Happy birthday to my brother for life!!! Have the best birthday Ye! Sending you love and endless blessings!!”

Kanye’s nearly 7-year marriage to Kim Kardashian came to an end in February, with the reality TV sensation filing for divorce. The rapper filed his response for divorce in early April, where he asked for joint legal and physical custody of their children.
The estranged pair share daughters North, Chicago, and sons Saint, five, and Psalm, two.
On the other hand, Irina was romantically involved with actor Bradley Cooper, whom she shares four-year-old daughter Lea De Seine with. Irina and Bradley began seeing each other in 2015 and moved quickly with their relationship, as they welcomed Lea two years after they initially met. Although the two were often spotted together in public over the next few years, their partnership came to an end in 2019.
Cooper and Shayk have remained on good terms, and the actor moved to New York City in order to be closer to his daughter and former girlfriend. Prior to beginning a relationship with Cooper, she was in a high-profile relationship with Cristiano Ronaldo for several years.
Irina and Kanye are certainly no strangers to one another, having been connected for more than a decade.
Back in 2010, the runway maven was a featured player in West’s Heaven-inspired Power music video, where she portrayed an angel.
Just two years later, the Russian-born beauty put her modeling skills to the test as she graced the runway for West’s Fall/Winter fashion collection at Paris Fashion Week.
