Actor Bradley Cooper is a new dad.

The movie star and his supermodel girlfriend Irina Shayk quietly welcomed their first child together earlier this month (Apr17), according to Us Weekly.

The couple has been dating for two years and went public with the romance in 2016.

Neither has spoken about Shayk's pregnancy, but it became clear the Russian beauty was expecting a child when she was spotted sporting a baby bump at the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show in Paris, France at the end of last year.

Irina partially concealed her stomach in a beaded and fringed red top, but fashion watchers were convinced she was a mum-to-be.

The model also sparked engagement rumours in December, when she was spotted wearing an emerald sparkler on her ring finger during a Los Angeles shopping trip, but the private couple has not addressed wedding reports.

Shayk, who started dating Silver Linings Playbook star Bradley shortly after ending her longtime romance with soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo, opened up a little about her family plans at the end of 2016, telling Britain's Hello! magazine, "I think family is the reason why we are here. I love my job and it's very important to me; I really enjoy what I I'm doing, but it's not the most important thing in my life - family is, friends, people who I love."

"My father was married to my mother for more than 20 years and, yes, definitely one day I want to have a family because that is the most important thing on this earth," she added.

"My sister had her baby when she was 22 and that was the perfect time, I will be 31 in January, so maybe soon it will be my perfect time."
