It’s deja vu for Kanye West as he reckons he could be in a “power couple” with new girlfriend Irina Shayk, it has been reported.
The rapper, 44, has been dating the Russian model, 35, for a few months now following his break-up from Kim Kardashian , the mother of his four children. And Kanye is said to be incredibly happy in his new relationship – and “made the first move” on Irina.

A source said: “Kanye loves that Irina is very easygoing and a laid-back person to be with. He was the first to reach out.”
They also claimed that Kanye likes that Irina has ties to the fashion industry and that she is an established and respected model within it.
The insider continued: “He loves that she carries clout with the fashion world. He thinks they could be a very chic power couple.”

It comes after Kim and Kanye – who share children North, eight, Saint, five, Chicago, three and Psalm, two – split in February this year after nearly seven years of marriage.
The family had made frequent appearances of Keeping Up With The Kardashians throughout the years, with Kanye’s extravagant proposal to Kim airing on screen.
Neither Kanye nor Irina have yet publicly addressed their blossoming romance, though sources have suggested that they have spent a lot of quality time together.
Kanye and Irina have actually known each other for over a decade after she portrayed an angel in his Power video in 2010. However, rumours that the pair were dating have only surfaced in the past month and they have since been spotted together on multiple occasions.
While things might be hotting up between the pair, Kanye and Irina are said to be taking things slowly as well as certainly enjoying each other’s company.“Kanye is looking more like his old self again,” a source said.
“The big smile is back and he’s got the spring back in his step again. He’s taking things slow with Irina and they are just enjoying each other’s company. They have a lot in common, both are ‘from the streets’ in terms of their interests and know a lot of the same people.
