Bradley Cooper, Shayk closer since baby’s birth

IANS | Los Angeles |

Actor Bradley Cooper and model Irina Shayk have been physically away from each other due to work, but their relationship has become stronger since the birth of their child.

In April, the actor's girlfriend and Victoria's Secret model gave birth to daughter Lea, their first baby. 

In the last few weeks, Cooper has been here filming his remake of the film A Star Is Born, his directorial debut, while Shayk made her red carpet return at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival. 

"Irina and the baby are doing wonderful. She has her mom in town since the baby was born helping her out. Bradley is in touch with Irina numerous times a day," a source told 

"It's hard for him to be apart from his new baby when he has to work. They FaceTime all the time when Bradley can't be there and working his crazy hours."

"Bradley and Irina as a couple are doing really good and have gotten even closer since the baby was born," the source added. "More kids would likely be in the future. They are in love with Lea."

Cooper and Shayk haven't made public any photos of their child. 

Lea, the source said, is a "very happy baby" and "is also so beautiful, definitely has her mom's model genes".

"Only a limited number of people have seen the baby. They want to protect her as much as they can from the media," the source added.
