Actor Bradley Cooper and Russian supermodel Irina Shayk started dating in early 2015, and, two years later, their life as a couple acquired a whole new sense.
The happy couple welcomed their first child, daughter Lea, on March 21, 2017.
How Lea looks like
Despite his busy work schedule, Bradley is a present dad and spends as much time with Lea as he can. He and Irina (who’s soon to become his wife, by some accounts) clearly enjoy being parents!
By the way, Irina’s high-profile ex, Cristiano Ronaldo, is a happy dad-of-four.
It’s not yet clear if little Lea looks more like dad or like mom. To us, she inherited the best features of both parents!
Irina and Bradley on parenthood
The two stars love their role as parents. Speaking to W Magazine, proud mom Irina said being a parent is “one of the greatest things in the world.”
She said her life wasn’t turned upside down by Lea’s arrival, but it did “change in a way to make me better.”
As for Bradley, he has a way to maintain a balance between career and family life. In an interview on NPR, he was asked how having Lea affected his career, and he said the change was positive:
I guess having a child, and having a family of my own – which is a miracle and something I've always dreamt of – has opened me up even more, I guess, to the day, and to be present.
As Bradley and Irina both are first-time parents, the journey must be very exciting for them! The couple and their daughter are a beautiful family, and that always comes before career.
