Bradley Cooper has been by Irina Shayk’s side during her pregnancy

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

    Great write up, Hecate.

  2. Katydid20 says:

    I legitimately forgot he was having a baby.

  3. ell says:

    it’s so ridiculous when men are praised for doing the most basic things, such as hanging out with their pregnant gf.

    • OriginallyBlue says:

      Right! 2 weeks ago my stepfather actually said that his son was babysitting his kids while his wife went to church. My mother called him out on it and he got so defensive. It’s called parenting.

    • graymatters says:

      Yeah. I hate it when men think they deserve a special award for doing the job of a 14-year-old girl.

  4. Mia4S says:

    Yeah…OK…so what do we think? They put on a front for about a year after the baby comes? Those quotes! To paraphrase the Bard; me thinks they doth protest too much. 😒

  5. lunchcoma says:

    Whichever one of their publicists leaked this, they need to be fired.

  6. Bree says:

    Jeezus, why does the reps even mention his mother at all? Those two have such a Norma/Norman Bates vibe. If I were Irina I would be very careful. It wouldnt surprise if he and his mum concoct a way to push her away so they can raise the next Cooper generation together by themselves. Watch your back Irina.

    • Lucy2 says:

      IKR? Closeness is great, but there seems to be some boundary issues there.

    • Jetblack says:

      His mum is Italian. Italian men, many of them, don’t move out of home until they get married – ’30s, ’40s, etc. Different culturally speaking.

    “Man performs most perfunctory of relationship requirements: a News Story.”

  8. minx says:

    He is so eewww.

  9. Anna says:

    “relationship” more like contract. Rolls eyes.

  10. Melanie says:

    I hate to say this, but I wonder if he is the father.

    • Amanda says:

      She could of gotten pregnant by him via artificial insemination, or maybe they had sex solely for procreation. There’s a chance they could in fact be a couple though, or you could be right. Who knows?

  11. Moon says:

    Is her job to be professional beard?

    • Jetblack says:

      I didn’t pay attention to the gay rumours before but even Nikki Finke hinted at it quite a few years back. It’s like George Clooney. I think BC and GC are bi, not gay.

  12. The Original Mia says:

    Totally forgot they were together and expecting a kid.
