UPDATE: Cooper and Shayk have since announced to the public that they are new parents to a baby girl they have named Lea de Seine Shayk Cooper.
The original posting continues below:
Former Daily News intern Bradley Cooper is settling into his role as a new father after girlfriend and model Irina Shayk gave birth to the couple’s first child two weeks ago, multiple reports indicate.
Neither Cooper, 42, nor Shayk, 31, have issued a comment regarding the news. There has been no word yet on the baby’s name, or whether it is a boy or girl, and pictures have not yet been shared.
Ellen DeGeneres, who recently filmed an episode of her talk show remotely in Philly, did, however, offer her congrats using a Hangover joke:
Congrats Irina Shayk and Bradley Cooper on your baby! Bradley, you're going to be a wonderful dad. Just don't take the baby to Vegas.

Word of Shayk’s pregnancy first began surfacing in media reports late last year, with the Russian-born model walking a Victoria’s Secret fashion show in Paris while wearing an outfit that hid a developing baby bump, USA Today reports. E! News reported in November last year that Shayk was in her second trimester at the time.
Cooper, a Philadelphia native who was raised in Montgomery County, has been romantically linked with Shayk since the spring of 2015. The pair have mostly kept their relationship quiet, but E! News reported in November last year that Cooper and Shayk had been discussing marriage before news of their pregnancy emerged.
As People reports, the couple plans to raise the baby in Cooper’s $4.7 million Los Angeles home, which the site said last year would “need extensive renovations to be safe enough for a child.”
In addition to becoming a father for the first time, Cooper is also at work on his debut as a feature film director. The Germantown Academy grad is currently remaking A Star is Born with stars Lady Gaga and Sam Elliot. According to IMDB, that film is scheduled for a Sept. 2018 release.
