Bradley Cooper has a lot going on at this year's Oscars, from being nominated for three awards to performing onstage with his co-star Lady Gaga. And by his side during the whole thing will be his partner, Irina Shayk. They've been together for years now, but they're both pretty private about their relationship, so if you want to know more, Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk's relationship timeline should help you out.

The actor and supermodel got together back in 2015. First they were spotted by paparazzi. Then they were really spotted by paparazzi while making out on a rocky beach, as you do. And the next thing you know, they were having a baby. Well, a few more things happened in between, but these two are just really quiet about their personal lives.

At Sunday's award show, Cooper is up for Best Picture, Best Actor, and Best Adapted Screenplay for A Star Is Born, (No Best Director nom, which was a bit of a surprise.), and the film is up for seven Oscars overall. In addition to that, he will be singing "Shallow" from the film alongside Gaga. Since Shayk has supported Cooper throughout this award season, it would be shocking if she didn't attend the Oscars. I mean, if only to hear "Shallow" live, right? This is a rare opportunity! Jackson Maine is retired!

Until then, let's take a look at Shayk and Cooper's history... or at least what we know of it.
