Cooper ‘introduced Shayk to family’

Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk’s relationship is going so well that the actor reportedly took his model girlfriend to meet his family on Labor Day weekend.

The 40-year-old Oscar nominated actor and his 29-year-old model beau were first linked back in March.

Since then, they have been flaunting their love for each other with full on PDAs during their European vacation over the summer.

But now Bradley has reportedly taken the next step in their relationship by setting up a meeting between Irina and his nearest and dearest.

Bradley has long had a family tradition of meeting up in Brigantine, New Jersey, over the Labor Day weekend.

And as things continue to heat up with his Russian beauty, Bradley made the decision to include her on his treasured family moment.

“Clearly their romantic summer in Europe got serious, because Bradley took Irina home to meet family and friends,” a source told the New York Daily News. “They stayed at the family home.”

During their time in New Jersey, Irina and Bradley enjoyed some low-key date nights at the actor’s favourite local spots.

One such evening saw the couple grab dinner at seafood restaurant Steve & Cookie’s by the Bay, where they “were outside kissing each other and showing a lot of PDA,” the onlooker added.

And there was no following of the model menu by Irina, with the statuesque brunette tucking in to many of the most calorific options on offer.

“They ate the whole menu, pretty much, and I sent them all our homemade desserts,” owner Cookie Till told the outlet. “They were just enjoying the company. It was just [Bradley’s] mother Gloria, his girlfriend, another gentleman and a couple.”

Irina also reportedly got involved in the day-to-day running of the Cooper household by walking the dog.
