Bradley Cooper Took His 6-Year-Old Daughter With Irina Shayk to the Red Carpet. And She Is 100% a Copy of Her Father
Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk are an example of healthy co-parenting even after the breakup. Both fully dedicate themselves to raising their 6-year-old daughter, Lea. They’ve managed to maintain a good relationship, even going on joint vacations. Recently, Bradley proudly walked his daughter down the red carpet for the first time, and people unanimously declared that she is his spitting image.
Cooper beamed with joy as he held onto his daughter’s hand while they posed for photographs. Lea wore a stylish Dolce & Gabbana leopard print chiffon dress paired with sparkling gold flats, accentuating her ensemble with a red purse. Her father was dressed in a dark blue suit for the event.
It was the first red carpet debut from little Lea. And needless to say, she looks exactly like her dad.
While their paths as a couple diverged, Cooper was steadfast in his commitment to raising his daughter as a single parent and making every effort to be a loving father to her. He did so well, in fact, that Shayk praised him for being the outstanding parent he was. “He’s a full-on, hands-on dad,” the model said.
Cooper has repeatedly shown that being a father is the proudest achievement of his life. He showed this in many ways, like when he was just playing with his daughter in public, and a paparazzo snapped the precious moment.
For the actor, becoming a parent and thriving as a single dad has entirely revolutionized him and his life. “Fatherhood is...everything changed,” Cooper confessed. “Every single thing is absolutely shaded by, or brought into glorious colors, by the fact that I get to be a father to a wonderful human being.”
Bradley is a multi-award-winning actor with a demanding schedule, but that doesn’t stop him from spending time with Lea and engaging in father-daughter activities. He admitted to liking watching cartoons with his child as “it allowed me to embrace my childlike self without any sort of like, fear of judgment.”
It seems that Bradley has already found happiness with his professional successes. Still, he noted that major situations that once affected him now seem little compared to the joy of parenting his daughter. Thus, he stated, “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.” And it was Bradley who escorted his daughter onto the red carpet for the first time.
The well-known actor and stunning model were in a relationship from 2015 to 2019. Despite their breakup, Bradley and Irina remain devoted parents to their daughter and are frequently seen spending time together.
In August 2023, Shayk and Cooper took a joint summer vacation, reinforcing the idea that maintaining a warm relationship as ex-partners is achievable.
