Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk are expecting a baby and the whole thing is pinging my radar. My radar for… shadiness, I think. It’s not that believe that this situation is a massive conspiracy (I don’t not think that though), but the publicity around it is so weird. Bradley Cooper still hasn’t said one word about it officially or unofficially. The unnamed sources who are talking all sound like Irina’s publicist. And to what end? To bill this as the hot and sexy romance of the year? Er, that ship sailed long ago. While I think Irina is sexy, Bradley is just… not. Like, at all. Anyway, the new rumor is that Bradley proposed to Irina. The rumor happened because Irina stepped out with a giant emerald-and-diamond ring on that finger. You can see the photos here.

To me, emeralds don’t really say “engagement ring,” but I realize that’s not the most popular opinion. Like, I think emeralds are beautiful and I would love to own the ring Irina is wearing, but just to wear as a cocktail ring or something pretty, not as engagement ring. Emeralds are increasingly popular for engagements though. People are also comparing Irina’s ring to the Duchess of Cambridge’s sapphire, just because it seems to be an oval-ish colored stone with a diamond surround.
As for this alleged engagement, People Magazine ran several stories about Irina’s “very suspicious emerald ring on her left hand.” Every other outlet is doing the same. It should be noted (again) that Bradley’s rep is still staying completely silent.
As for the pregnancy, E! News had a story this week about how the baby is due in May and Irina is “feeling wonderful” and she and Bradley already know the sex of the kid. This E! story also insists that Bradley’s mom Gloria gets along really well with Irina. Sure.
