Bradley Cooper’s best dad moments with his daughter, Lea



Bradley Cooper’s best dad moments with his daughter, Lea

When Bradley Cooper is on daddy duty, nothing else matters.

The actor and his former girlfriend, supermodel Irina Shayk, welcomed their first and only child — a daughter named Lea de Seine — in March 2017.

Despite their June 2019 breakup, the pair has continued to put their co-parenting relationship first.

The “A Star Is Born” actor has proven over the years that Lea is his No. 1 priority.

Here’s a look at some of Cooper’s best doting dad moments:

When he rushed out of a press conference

In December 2023, Cooper rushed out of a New York City press conference for his movie “Maestro” after receiving an urgent call from his daughter’s school.

“So sorry. The school nurse just called me,” he reportedly said while glancing at his phone.

“Can I just leave the room for a second to call them back and you can keep going? Is that all right?”

The “Hangover” star briefly returned to the stage to explain that he had to go see Lea to administer something school officials couldn’t.

“I have to apply something that they won’t allow,” he told the crowd. “I have to do it, so it’s, like, a 10-minute walk.”

Her red carpet debut

Best Halloween costumes in the galaxy

Cooper and Shayk put on a united front while trick-or-treating with their daughter in October 2023. For the Halloween holiday, the actor and the model wore matching “Guardians of the Galaxy” costumes while Lea dressed up as Taylor Swift.

That’s amore

An af-fair to remember

How she’s changed his life

In September 2018, Cooper told NPR, “Having a child and having a family of my own — which is a miracle and something I’ve always dreamt of — has opened me up even more to the day, and to be present. I just always want [Lea] to feel loved.”

He told Ellen DeGeneres in April 2019 that fatherhood “allowed [him] to embrace [his] childlike self without any sort of fear of judgment.”

“I can just play with toys all day long,” he elaborated, “or watch cartoons endlessly and not think I’m wasting my life.”

He went on to say that he did not “subscribe” to the terrible twos trope, explaining, “I don’t even know what that means.”

The actor has also spoken about how he often thinks about “what she’s got to look forward to and also the burden of life.”

Beach babes

Cooper and Shayk enjoyed a family beach day in Los Angeles in January 2018.

In photos of the outing, Lea’s piercing blue eyes matched the color of the ocean.

She sported an all-white ensemble and matching hat to protect her tiny head from the sun.
