American actor and producer Bradley Cooper and Russian supermodel Irina Shayk are getting serious about their relationship. The Victoria's Secret model and the Silver Linings Playbook actor reportedly want to marry and start a family.

A source told E! News: "They are in an extremely happy place between the two of them. They have discussed marriage and kids."

"They plan on going on a tropical vacation for the holidays together with their families and close friends," the insider added. "Irina and Bradley like to live a private life."

"Bradley has been very supportive with Irina's career," the source continued. "Bradley and Irina have been discussing the future more seriously lately."

Rumours that Shayk and Cooper are dating started in May 2015, after the two were pictured getting intimate at a Met Gala after-party hosted by Rihanna in New York. In the photos obtained by Daily Mail, the American Sniper actor and Shayk were seen having a good time together and sharing passionate kisses before heading to see a late showing of Broadway show Hamilton.

Meanwhile, Cristiano Ronaldo's former girlfriend had previously described to Spain's Hola magazine her idea of a perfect man. She said: "My ideal man is faithful, honest and a gentleman who knows how to treat women. I don't believe in men who make us feel unhappy, because they're boys not men," she said. "I thought I had once found the ideal man but it didn't turn out that way."

"I think a woman feels ugly when she's got the wrong man at her side. I've felt ugly and insecure," she added.
