Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk are getting more and more serious as a couple! With the holidays (and Election Day 2016!) approaching, Bradley and Irina may have been inspired to start their discussion about their future, which could involve marriage and even kids. Seeing how the Guardians of the Galaxy actor is 41 and the Russian model 30, it could be high time that they start thinking about their next steps.
But one thing that the Hollywood couple does not want to do is to rush into things.
“They are in an extremely happy place between the two of them,” a source said to E! News. “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 source continued. “Irina and Bradley like to live a private life.”
By making sure that the time they spend with each other is framed around a relaxing atmosphere, Bradley and Irina must be hoping that this will help them get in the mood for married life.
On the other hand, they also know how to live very independent lives. The fact that the 30-year-old model is based in Europe and constantly has to travel for work means that Guardians of the Galaxy star had to accommodate that lifestyle if he wanted to stay in the relationship.
That also means that she has to attend events with men, who are not Bradley Cooper, as her dates. Check out this picture on her Instagram!
Despite the fact that Bradley is based on the west coast and Irina in Europe, they do make it a point to meet as frequently as possible. All throughout summer, the 41-year-old actor was right by his girlfriend’s side as she traveled to shoot different covers and campaigns in the Mediterranean.
“His sexy model girlfriend Irina Shayk raised temperatures as she flaunted her curves in a tiny yellow bikini on the beach while the actor was playing tennis during a recent trip away,” reports the Mirror. “She made sure she caught some rays while out with a friend on a sunny afternoon in Sardinia and was snapped after rearranging her bikini top.”
He also has been showing the world that he does not want his girlfriend to sacrifice her career for him.
“Bradley has been very supportive with Irina’s career,” the source from E! Online added. “Bradley and Irina have been discussing the future more seriously lately.”
With autumn in full swing, Irina is making more time to see him and his family in the states.
“Just days after reports surfaced suggesting that Irina Shayk and Bradley Cooper are ‘discussing marriage,’ the Russian beauty was seen out with the actor’s mother in California,” reports the Daily Mail. “Irina was spotted running errands with Gloria Campano in the upscale LA neighborhood of Pacific Palisades on Friday. The statuesque 30-year-old towered over her diminutive possible future mother-in-law as they exited a grocery store together.”
And just because his girlfriend (and possibly future wife) is in Los Angeles now, that doesn’t mean Bradley is spending his every waking moment with her. It looks like the couple knows how to spend time alone to make sure that they don’t get too sick of each other.
“He’s a Hollywood A-lister, but on Sunday Bradley Cooper put his work life at the back of his mind as he indulged in his love of motorcycle riding,” reports the Daily Mail. “The Oscar nominated actor was spotted enjoying a spin through Santa Monica atop his trusty KTM motorbike. Making safety a top priority, Bradley was kitted out in a black helmet and protective vest before he even hopped onto the eye-catching orange bike.”
