Bradley Cooper, the Hollywood mega-star famous for roles in Silver Linings Playbook, The Hangover and American Sniper, is a dad! He welcomed his first child with girlfriend Irina Shayk earlier this year.
The couple is very private about their relationship and the new baby. Shayk, 31, a Victoria’s Secret model, attended a fashion show last year sporting a tiny baby bump. Then the speculation began.
Friends of the couple say that Cooper, 42, and Irina are very happy together. They want to spend their lives together and have a big family.
Friends report that Cooper was ecstatic when he found out he was going to be a new dad. Apparently, he was right by Irina’s side through it all–baby kicks, doctor visits, childbirth classes and all the rest.
The couple is incredibly private and have not yet publicly revealed the baby’s gender or name. They plan to raise the child in Los Angeles.
Cooper’s mother reportedly threw the couple a lovely baby shower in March. Bradley was right there helping his mom make the event run smoothly. The couple received many baby gifts, including toys and designer baby clothes. The couple reportedly baby-proofed their home in December to get ready for their bundle of joy in the spring.
Cooper was one of the most famous bachelors in the world, but when he met Shayk in May 2015, he was instantly smitten. The stunning couple has been spotted a few times kissing in New York or LA, but they are notoriously private. They do not talk publicly about their relationship nor do they post on social media.
