What Irina Shayk Must Be Thinking During Her Post-Baby Debut

Irina Shayk Cannes

It's hard to believe nine weeks have passed since Irina Shayk and Bradley Cooper welcomed their first child, a baby girl named Lea De Seine. Though we haven't seen the likely super-gorg baby up close (the couple is pretty private), we have an idea how life has been as new parents. But recently, Irina Shayk made her first red carpet appearance since giving birth and, of course, turned heads in a mouth-drop, OMG-You-Betta-Werk way.


The 31-year-old Victoria's Secret model was a vision in canary yellow at the Palais des Festivals in Cannes on May 22. As she joins a hefty line-up of (new) celeb moms who dip it and do it after giving birth, we can only imagine what's running through Irina's head at this event ...

... thus prompting us to imagine what the new mom was thinking during her first post-baby red carpet appearance. (At least, this is what we'd be thinking.)

On the scene.

Ah, yes -- the grand debut. While most celebs are likely practicing their Naomi walk and duck face, Irina looks like she's ready to get the party started ... perhaps so it can end and she can go back to her baby girl, leggings, nursing bra, and slippers -- or at least some well-deserved new mom R&R.

Did someone say food?

There's no denying how amazing and gorgeous and stunning Irina looks. This mom is a knockout from head to toe. We can only imagine the amount of clean eating -- think kale and grass snacks -- is required, which is why we can imagine Irina saying through her gaze, "I smell pizza and haven't eaten since I last fed Lea. Hold it together, girl. Hold it together."

Just a few more step and repeats.

Red carpets look pretty long, and with all the stopping and posing, Irina must've been super determined to get to the end of the paparazzi -- 'cause we already know how anxious new moms can be whenever they leave their baby. Irina looks like she's counting the number of people she has to smile and say hi to before she can make a dash for her car.

Just keep walking, Mama, you're almost there.

Time to pump -- gotta go!

One of the perks of breastfeeding (or being an exclusive pumper) is using your need to pump or nurse your baby as a "Get out of a boring and/or annoying conversation" card. While we don't know if Irina breastfeeds her daughter Lea, she sure does look like she's trying to exit stage right with the quickness.

Hmm ... wonder if Irina had an assistant who used her travel pump as a clutch.

Does this makeup hide the fact that I had only had two hours of sleep?

We gotta give it to Irina for looking so rested during her first red carpet appearance. Heaven knows babies are notorious for keeping parents up all day and night, which would have the best of us looking like extras on The Walking Dead.
