The new couple didn't get personal at the Met Gala in the city on Monday (04May15), when Shayk, who called off her romance with soccer stud Cristiano Ronaldo earlier this year (15), told reporters she had arrived at fashion's big night solo and didn't have a date - even though Cooper was there.

But new photos of the couple locking lips on the street after catching a performance of off-Broadway play Hamilton appear to confirm the pair is dating.

Cooper, who until recently was dating Brit Suki Waterhouse, and his latest model girlfriend were first linked last month (Apr15) after they were spotted at a Broadway play together.
