Forget being an award-winning actor and producer, Bradley Cooper should be recognized as Father of the Year! Since splitting from his partner of four years, Irina Shayk, The Hangover alum, 44, has gone into full single dad mode with the pair’s daughter, Lea De Seine. 

“Bradley and Lea love being together,” a source exclusively tells Life & Style magazine, on newsstands now. “Spending time with her has completely changed his life and perspective.”

So, what do Bradley and his mini-me like to do together in The Big Apple? “He loves planning a day with Lea — packing snacks, putting her down for naps, the whole thing,” says the source. “They take long walks, go to the park, play with dolls and he loves reading to her. Lea is his priority.”

“Bradley is truly a hands-on parent,” confirms an insider, adding that the A-lister often scours mommy blogs for the best advice. “He takes her to music classes, museums and gym groups. He’s there for her playdates and doctor appointments, he’s wiping away her tears and working to potty train her.”

Bradley also has high hopes for his daughter’s education. He wants Lea, 2, to speak several languages, “just like he and Irina do,” notes the source. Brad is fluent in French, while Irina, 33, speaks Russian. 

As for dating? “While Bradley’s career is important to him, everything in his life takes a back seat to his daughter,” the insider adds. “So any future relationship will most definitely come second to Lea.”

Kudos to Bradley for being such an amazing father. Lea is a lucky little girl!
