Bradley Cooper’s putting the “da” in Dada.
We’re told the “Silver Linings Playbook” actor and ex Irina Shayk have such a cozy custody arrangement that they both take their three-year-old daughter, Lea De Seine, to a specialist school in the Financial District every Thursday where the tot takes classes in Shayk’s native Russian.
Shayk was born Yemanzhelinsk in the USSR — now in western Russia — but moved to the United States around 2007 when her modeling career took off after she became the first Russian to appear on the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition.
Cooper and Shayk — who got together in 2015 — had Lea in 2017, but split in 2019.
According to TMZ, they reached a custody agreement in January that called for both of them to live in New York City in order to co-parent together, even though Cooper had previously spent much of his time living in Los Angeles. The site said that they will split legal and physical custody 50/50, “although with work schedules it varies from month to month.”
TMZ also said they don’t have a formal, written custody agreement. “They’re so in sync with co-parenting, they don’t feel the need to memorialize it,” it said.
The model recently told Elle magazine that Cooper is “the most amazing dad” and insisted that — despite the split — they continue to be “parents” to Lea, rather than “co-parents.”
“I never understood the term co-parenting,” Shayk told the magazine, “When I’m with my daughter, I’m 100 percent a mother, and when she’s with her dad, he’s 100 percent her dad. Co-parenting is parenting.”
A rep for Cooper didn’t get back to us, and a rep for Shayk couldn’t be reached.
