Bradley Cooper is a proud dad to his darling daughter Lea De Seine. He shares the four-year-old with his ex Irina Shayk.
Bradley Cooper and Russian model Irina Shayk first got together in April 2015. By November that same year, he moved into her apartment in New York's West Village.
The couple welcomed Lea in March 2017 and kept her privacy for the next three years. They never shared photos of the little girl themselves up until this year.
ABOUT BRADLEY AND IRINA
Cooper is an Oscar-nominated actor who rose to fame on "Alias." He went on to star in hit films like "A Star is Born," "American Sniper," and "Silver Linings Playbook."
Before dating Shayk, he was married to actress Jennifer Esposito from 2006 to 2007. He has reportedly dated Zoe Saldana, Renee Zellweger, and Suki Waterhouse.
THE END OF THEIR RELATIONSHIP
Although Cooper and Shayk didn't use to share photos of Lea, they are frequently seen out and about with her. Because of this, people have seen her grow up through pictures taken by others.
In June 2019, after four years of dating, Shayk and Cooper decided to call it quits. Despite their split, they've been spotted out together numerous times with their daughter and have been focusing on her well-being above anything else.
Before Cooper, Shayk famously used to date international football star Cristiano Ronaldo. While she admitted that her life didn't flip around after the arrival of her daughter, it definitely improved the way she lived and how she is as a person.
In a previous interview, Shayk admitted that Cooper is the "most amazing dad" to their daughter, and they continue to raise her together. She doesn't like using the term "co-parenting, thinking of it as simply "parenting" instead.
SITTING BETWEEN LADY GAGA AND BRADLEY AT THE OSCARS
Their last formal appearance as a couple was at the 2019 Academy Awards, and Shayk sat between Cooper and his co-star Lady Gaga during the ceremony.
It has been reported, however, that Shayk may have felt the need to sit between her husband and Lady Gaga during the ceremony to keep their flame to a minimum.
Cast members often sit next to each other, but Shayk broke tradition and kept the two stars away from each other, and fans couldn't help but notice it. Ever since the hit movie "A Star is Born" took the world by storm, fans have been wondering whether something is going on between Cooper and Gaga.
A RUMORED RELATIONSHIP
The two stars developed an incredibly close bond during the shooting of the film, not only due to the complicated relationship between their characters but also while practicing the iconic song "Shallow." Shortly after, Shayk and Cooper announced their split.
Just this August, Cooper and his daughter Lea were spotted arriving at Martha's Vineyard to celebrate Barack Obama's 60th birthday. The 46-year-old actor looked cool in a pair of casual gray shorts, a blue button-down polo, and a gray jacket.
His little daughter wore a pretzel-printed set and a bucket hat. They walked hand-in-hand to attend the celebration that also included the likes of Alicia Keys, John Legend, and Stephen Colbert.
