American actor and producer Bradley Cooper has welcomed his first child with Irina Shayk. The Russian supermodel reportedly gave birth about two weeks ago.

A source close to the couple confirmed the good news to People.

On February 12, the couple were spotted together walking along the beach in Venice, California. The following month, rumours emerged that the two are on not in good terms. A source told Radar Online: "Bradley has never looked so miserable."

Meanwhile, reports that she is pregnant started after the 31-year-old model kept her midriff covered up while hitting the runway during the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show 2016 in Paris, France.

Shayk had previously expressed her desire to have children. She told 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'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. I don't think there is a perfect time. I think it's more important to have the right person by your side," she added.
