Oh my gosh, you guys! This is sooooo romantic. As you know, Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk are expecting a baby soon. They announced their “thrilling” news and everyone exclaimed, “Oh… uhm – huh. Okay.” Following, it appeared that maybe Cooper forgot his girlfriend was pregnant because he kept failing to go home to her. But then came the photos from their spontaneous and not-staged lunch on the beach that assured us these two crazy kids were still together. Well, it turns out that Bradley has been right there with Irina the whole pregnancy! Yes, that’s right. I mean, not like literally – I’m sure he’s had a few bathroom breaks and maybe made a sandwich along the way but other than that, he’s been there. Right there – by the woman with whom he is about to have a child. What a guy!
With only a few months to go until her due date, the Russian supermodel is “feeling pretty good,” the source reveals. That said, Shayk has “slowed down” a bit in recent weeks. “She has some major cravings and is indulging in all of them. She loves being pregnant and seeing her and Bradley’s baby grow in her belly.” And ever since her pregnancy was revealed last year, Shayk has kept up with her workouts. “She’s been exercising lightly and working with a trainer.”
It appears Shayk’s pregnancy has only brought her closer to Cooper, whom she began dating in early 2015. “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,” the source tells E! News exclusively. “Bradley’s mother and Irina have gotten even closer during this pregnancy, and his mother has been very helpful.”
Though Shayk has yet to give birth, she’s already thinking about giving her baby a sibling.
As the source reveals, “She would like one more down the road.”
Did anyone else read this “source’s” words being said in a surprised tone? It’s almost as they were one breath shy of “can you f–cking believe it?” As if they lost the pool on when Bradley would take a powder. This particular wording almost confirms rumors that these two had hit the skids before they got pregnant. In which case, I’m glad they have gotten closer and are excited. They are going to need to be as close as possible when they little Coop arrives. Not gonna lie, I’m reading all sorts of subtext into the quote about Bradley’s mom, Gloria.
Apparently the couple had a baby shower recently and Cooper was there, of course, because he has leased the space right by Irina’s side. Our verbose Source said that he, “was hanging with his mother,” which he may or may not have been ordered to do. Ms. Source gushed about how beautiful the shower was and all the designer swag Mom and baby got. Supposedly the couple knows the baby’s gender and the shower was designed around that but nobody will tell the press what it is. I understand waiting to find out the gender but I don’t understand finding out the gender and keeping it a secret? What’s the point in that? I advocate not mentioning the baby’s name until after its born because before you give birth, everyone will give you their opinion on your selection (and it is usually not favorable). However after your baby is born, people don’t usually critique the name – to your face anyway.
If Irina wants Bradley to stay by her side, she’s going to have to stop biting him
