AceShowbiz - Tom Brady is apparently taking his alleged romance with Irina Shayk seriously. After they were spotted getting flirty during a car ride in Los Angeles over the weekend, it's said that he already sees a "future" with the model, two months after their encounter at Joe Nahmad and Madison Headrick's wedding.
Sources tell Daily Mail that the former NFL star and the catwalk beauty have "a lot of chemistry" and that the dalliance is "not just a fling," with the 45-year-old hunk seeing a "future" Irina. "Tom is really ecstatic that this is happening," one of the sources gushes.
The so-called insider dishes, "He feels that they totally get each other, and he really finds her extremely interesting, entrepreneurial, and has a clever sense of humor that really appeals to everything he is all about."
"She is not just a fling; he really wants to make this work," the source goes on explaining how serious the relationship is. "He always told himself after his divorce that he would only get involved with someone that a future could be made, someone he could eventually introduce to his kids."
As to what has attracted Tom to Irina, the source shares, "He really thinks very highly of her and where this relationship could go. He has zero worry with her, they seem to get each other and get along quite well."
Another source adds, "They're dating and having fun. It was Tom who invited Irina to his home in L.A. after they really clicked in May [at Joe Nahmad and Madison Headrick's wedding.]" While they did not interact much at the nuptials, "they've been in touch ever since then, trying to line up schedules to meet," the source says, before noting, "They have a lot of chemistry. They're excited to see where it goes but it's still early days."
Contrary to Daily Mail's report, Page Six claims that Tom and Irina's rumored romance "is something new and at the moment it's totally casual." The site also clarifies that the pair "did not hook up" when they met at the A-list wedding in Sardinia.
Irina reportedly spent a night at Tom's L.A. home over the weekend. The former football quarterback was seen picking her up from the Hotel Bel-Air on Friday afternoon, July 21 and then driving them to his home.
The pair didn't emerge until the next morning when Tom dropped the 37-year-old model back at her hotel. He was seen touching her face in his Rolls-Royce. The duo were also photographed going for a stroll down the street.
Irina was previously reported "throwing herself at" Tom during the wedding of billionaire art heir Joe and model Madison in Italy back in May. "She followed him around all weekend," a source said, but Tom reportedly "wasn't interested" in the Victoria's Secret supermodel romantically.
A representative for Irina later debunked the "malicious and fictional" reports, claiming, "This story is completely false."
Tom was officially divorced from Gisele Bundchen in October 2022 after 13 years of marriage. The former couple shares two children, 13-year-old son Benjamin and 10-year-old daughter Vivian. As for Irina, she has 6-year-old daughter Lea from her previous relationship with Bradley Cooper.
