Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk ‘welcome their first child’

Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk have reportedly welcomed their first child together.

According to a source who spoke to PEOPLE magazine, the actor, 42, and Victoria’s Secret model, 31, became parents two weeks ago, but are keeping all of the details about their bundle of joy tightly under wraps.

It’s not the first time that the pair have chosen to keep their personal lives private – in fact, the news that Irina was expecting only broke in November last year after she was pictured walking a catwalk wearing outfits that covered her stomach.

The insider told PEOPLE that Bradley and Irina chose not to find out the sex of their baby during the pregnancy, although this statement has yet to be confirmed by the couple.

Bradley and Irina are notoriously private about their life together

During this period, another source told E! News: ‘Irina and Bradley are doing really well. Bradley has been helping Irina and been going with her to doctor appointments and being by her side through this whole pregnancy. He is as excited as she is to be a parent.’

‘Bradley’s mother and Irina have gotten even closer during this pregnancy, and his mother has been very helpful.’

The couple were first linked back in May 2015, when they were spotted kissing whilst out and about in New York, but have generally elected not to speak out about their relationship publicly, although Irina has been known to share the occasional picture of the two together on Instagram.

In 2013, before Bradley and Irina started dating, the Hangover trilogy star told American magazine Details of his desire to start a family.

‘Of course I have [thought about being a dad],’ he said to the mag. ‘I really hope I have that experience in my life. 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.’
