Bradley Cooper and model Irina Shayk split in 2019 after four years together, but a source close to the couple has hinted that they may be considering a reconciliation. The former couple share a 5-year-old daughter, Lea De Seine, and have reportedly discussed more children together, Page six reports.
They seem to have a very healthy co-parenting relationship and even went on a family vacation together this summer. Shayk shared photos of the holiday on Instagram, where she and Cooper are wearing swimwear and smiling happily.
“It was a real family holiday and they are considering getting back together,” the source said. “She wanted her daughter to have a sibling.”
The source continued: “Both of them [Bradley and Irina] haven’t gotten serious with anyone else and they’re both into the idea of having a baby.”
Cooper was recently romantically paired with Huma Abedin. This was obviously a casual hookup, as were Shayk’s brief flings with Vito Schnabel and Kanye West.
“It’s not Bennifer 2.0, where the other person is always in the back of your mind, it’s more like, ‘Why not?'” the source explained. “They still have to deal with each other as they co-parent. They both think, maybe it’s time to finally settle down.”
Cooper and Shayk were first romantically linked in 2015 when they were spotted on a date to the Broadway show Finding Neverland. Shayk was known as a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model and has continued to grow her illustrious career; she recently modeled for the latest Adidas x Ivy Park line, wearing one of the brand’s turquoise latex leotards for their latest ad campaign.
