When it comes to his child, Bradley Cooper can’t get enough! Considering this was the 44-year-old’s first Christmas as a single dad, he made sure his daughter, Lea De Seine Shayk Cooper, whom he shares with ex Irina Shayk, felt super special. The father of one did not hold back for his little girl!
“The holidays are Bradley’s favorite time of year, and he thought of everything: leaving milk and cookies out for Santa Claus and even dressing up as the big guy himself,” a source exclusively told Life & Style magazine, on newsstands now. “And then there were the presents!”
What exactly did the actor get his 2-year-old? Well, let’s just say he spoiled her. He asked her what she wanted “weeks in advance,” the insider divulged, “so there was a doll, some picture books and a few bigger surprises waiting for her under the tree.” How sweet!
Clearly, the American Sniper star is a devoted dad. “Bradley’s a big softie when it comes to little Lea,” the source added. “There isn’t anything he wouldn’t do for her.”
Fortunately, his split from the supermodel has not affected his relationship with Lea. If anything, it has brought them even closer. “Bradley and Lea love being together,” another source divulged to Life & Style magazine in November. “Spending time with her has completely changed his life and perspective.”
The pair enjoys a number of activities together. “He loves planning a day with Lea — packing snacks, putting her down for naps, the whole thing,” the second insider added. “They take long walks, go to the park, play with dolls and he loves reading to her.. 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.”
Lea is so important to Bradley, that she comes above anyone else, according to the source. What a good dad!
