“They were all smiles and looked like they were having such a fun time,” an eyewitness tells Us Weekly of the A Star Is Born actor’s Thursday, December 20, outing. “When I saw them, they were leaving Disneyland and heading to California Adventure. He was carrying [Lea]. I was walking in between him and [Shayk], so I saw him look back laughing and gesturing for her to come up next to him.”
A second onlooker reveals that the pair tried to remain incognito as they exited the Indiana Jones Adventure ride. “He had his baseball cap pulled down, and he and Irina were talking. They looked like they were having fun,” the onlooker says. “They were smiling and kind of leaning in talking to each other.”
Another parkgoer tells Us that the three-time Oscar nominee, 43, was focused on navigating Disneyland in between attractions: “He seemed really intent on walking toward Jungle Cruise and was carrying his daughter.”
The third parkgoer adds: “The Disney cast members were escorting him, but he was walking really quickly and Irina was strolling behind. … He seemed super intense on where he was trying to go and made sure his family got there in one piece.”
Cooper and Shayk, 32, who have been together since April 2015, are notoriously private about their daughter. However, the Silver Linings Playbook star opened up about his life as a father in an interview with NPR in September: “I guess having a child, and having a family of my own — which is a miracle and something I’ve always dreamt of — has opened me up even more, I guess, to the day, and to be present,” he said.
