Bradley Cooper & Irina Shayk had a beach picnic which was not at all staged

Okay, which one of you forgot to pay attention to Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayak? Well, look what you made them do. They had to hightail it to the beach to roll around From Here to Eternity style while a photographer – somehow – got a whole bunch of cheesy shots of them. Last Sunday, BCoop in his Grizzly Adams-cum-serious director look and Irina had a romantic lunch on the beach and then cuddled and cooed in sand – like you do when you are several months pregnant. Miraculously, the paps caught it all on film.

Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk only have eyes for each another! 

Cooper and a visibly pregnant Shayk went on a romantic picnic together in Malibu, California, on Sunday, where they were snapped holding hands on the beach. Cooper, 42, put his long locks in a half bun and carried his boots, as 31-year-old Shayk carried their picnic basket and dressed comfortably in black leggings.

After some kissing and hugging on the sand, the Russian supermodel was snapped enjoying a casual stroll by the water.

An eyewitness tells ET the couple stayed for over an hour on the beach, eating salad and sharing a water bottle. “Irina was happy, looked beautiful makeup-free and was glowing,” the eyewitness says. “Bradley’s mood was pretty relaxed. [He] took off his shirt at one point after lunch while they relaxed on the beach.” 

“The pair showed quite a bit of PDA,” the eyewitness also notes, adding that no one noticed the famous couple. “They hugged and kissed on the beach and held hands as they walked. Their arms were around each other, and Bradley rested his hand on Irina’s belly.”

Who eats a salad on the beach? What is the point of eating salad on the beach? I am fundamentally opposed to bringing utensils to a beach. Unless it’s like a reality TV date kind of thing with a white tablecloth and wine glasses that inexplicably stay upright in the sand, my beach fare is pretty simple.

But I might be missing the point of this little beach romp…

You can see more loved up shots here. Irina looks lovely and healthy. Coops hair is a travesty. I am certainly no conspiracy theorist but if I were, I might suspect a bit of a schedule here for two people who haven’t generated news in a while. November’s photo was the pregnancy announcement, December was the Ring- What Does It Mean? Walk photo. January brought photos of Irina’s driving lessons, because those are often documented on film, right? And now a romantic beach outing in time for Valentine’s Day. Following the Don’t-Tell-Until-12-Weeks Rule, my guess is the baby is due late April early May. So shall we take guesses about March’s photos? I want a unique concept, like the driver’s training shots. Coop might be shooting A Star is Born by then, so maybe a belly cup during a roof-drop with Lady Gaga?

But seriously – wouldn’t it be easier for these two if they would just pose on a red carpet together?



I mean, look how natural he is, right?

    I will never know how he ended up with the gorgeous and lovely Irina.

    Bradley has always given me the creepy wipe and I just like him.

    I have always like Irina and she seems lovely in her interviews.

    Either way – good luck to them.

    • Lulu says:

      You took the words right out of my mouth ! All this 💯!!!!

    • milla says:

      she made a career from dating CR. I would never call her lovely.

      they are perfect match in my eyes. and i do not like either…

    • Marlena says:

      I have no strong feelins about Irina, do not really care for Bradley Cooper though. But her face looks extremely nipped and tucked to me. Maybe because I am European I am not used to that look at all. Again, I have no strong feelings either way but I wonder if maybe things like plastic surgery become normalized when you see them all the time.

      • Daisy says:

        There are pictures od her when she was a kid and she has the same face, huge lips and all.

        I really like her.

      • sauvage says:

        @ Daisy: I think her upper lip is not real. Going through photographs of her in various stages in her life, I’d conclude that she had full lips to begin with, but the top has been regularly blown up to that telltale rubber raft size.

        @ Marlena: I share your concerns about normalizing the plastic look.

    Ok so I’ll start by saying that in Barbados when we do beach picnics it’s not sandwiches and cake, it’s the full works- rice, macaroni pie, potato salad, steamed veg, ham, chicken, pork etc. Like a Christmas spread. Don’t ask me why that’s just how we are. HOWEVER salad is extremely hard to eat at the beach since the lettuce is forever blowing away. Oh and this is staged but not as gloriously staged as the Tiddles beach date

  3. Becky says:

    Why are they taking ceramic bowls on a picnic?

  4. Paula says:

    Meh. As far as staged pics on the beach go, Tiddles did way better.

    I find her so beautiful.

  5. RussianBlueCat says:

    I say Bradley was getting inspiration to do a remake of ” From Here to Eternity ” after her does the remake of “A Star is Born”. Irina was there to convince Bradley to give her a part in A Star is Born and to get him to lose that manbun

  6. Alexandria says:

    She is so beautiful. He’s very lucky. She…I dunno. At least she has her own money.

  7. Odette says:

    I just don’t buy what they’re selling. Sorry.

  8. Mia4S says:

    I think that they’re very much getting what they need from each other…..take from this comment what you will. 😏

  9. LadyT says:

    These types of photo ops are counterproductive. Sure Bradley got his picture in a magazine but opinion of him goes down a notch. The posing try-hard business is such a turn-off.

  10. AmBam says:

    Totally staged and totally bearding!

  11. Caitiecait says:

    If these are staged, I give them credit for trying to look “real” in that there are other people on the beach and his hair looks terrible. The hiddleswift ones looked more fake because no one else was on the beach (indicating private property, etc).

  12. CornyBlue says:

    It makes me so mad to see these girls dressed all prim and proper and lovely and the dudes look like they just rolled out of bed and has not brushed in a week.

  13. M.A.F. says:

    Wouldn’t March be a “surprise” baby shower photo shoot?

  14. Lalu says:

    She is drop dead gorgeous. He lucked out.

  15. Connie says:

    Those beach photos make BCoop look tense if not depressed. A baby after 1 year of relationship with a Russian model. Unexpected pregnancy?

  16. Andrea says:

    I never understood women’s obsession with him. He always has a smarmy look to him IMO.

  17. Nimbolicious says:

    I’m sure the bearding contract provides for monthly “spontaneous” photo ops.
