Congratulations are in order for actor Bradley Cooper, 42, and his supermodel girlfriend Irina Shayk, 31, whose first child was born at the end of March, according to People magazine.
E! News reports that the couple welcomed a daughter named Lea de Seine Shayk Cooper.
In November, Irina confirmed reports she was pregnant after she walked the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show with a burgeoning baby bump. Meanwhile, American Sniper star Bradley has previously admitted he’d love to become a dad, telling Details magazine in 2013, “I really hope I have that experience in my life.”

He added, “I saw how much joy fatherhood gave my own dad. So I hope it’s part of my journey. You go through stages in your life, and fatherhood seems like a natural stage.”
He’s also lamented the fact that his father, who passed away in 2011, wouldn’t be around to see him enter the next chapter of his life. “I’m sorry my father won’t be around to see his grandchildren, but he knows fatherhood was something I was looking forward to. That’s my next big step in life,” the star explained to Square Mile in 2013.
Since going public with their romance, marriage rumors have also circulated the couple. “Bradley and Irina have been discussing the future more seriously lately,” a source told E! News last year. “They are in an extremely happy place between the two of them,” the insider continued.
This would mark the first marriage for Irina and the second for Bradley, who was previously married to actress Jennifer Esposito for less than a year in 2007.
We can’t wait to catch a glimpse of the pair’s (no doubt) gorgeous child! This post originally appeared on NowToLove.com.au.
