At first, some fans didn't even notice newly single Emrata standing in the background, seemingly taking the photo.

One stunned Instagrammer asked: "Wait is that @emrata in the back?"

Another responded: "OMG I did not even see her!! Thank you and yes it’s definitely her! Damn good job!"

The pair were first spotted together at popular restaurant Sakagura in January, before heading to the Cayman Islands on holiday. On 13 February, Ratajkowski and Andrew were seen sitting courtside at the New York Knicks game at Madison Square Garden.

In a recent episode of her podcast High Low, Ratajowski offered some insight into how men feel dating a powerful woman, from personal experience.

Speaking with influencer and model Olivia Ponton, Ratajowski, explained how being an "independent woman" can emasculate some men.

"I feel like a lot of men who truly want a strong woman actually don’t know how to handle it," Ratajowski said.
