Bradley Cooper made a heartfelt speech to his girlfriend Irina Shayk as he picked up the award for Best Original Music for his film A Star Is Born at the 2019 British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) Awards in London. The 44-year-old actor thanked the Russian model for her constant support during the making of the film.
In his acceptance speech, the Hangover star also made a special mention of his co-star Lady Gaga. He said, according to The Daily Mail: "I got to fulfill a dream I never thought would happen. I share this with Lady Gaga tonight, the music was the heartbeat of this film."
"I also need to thank Irina for putting up with me while I was trying to make music in our basement for a year," he shared.
Cooper and Shayk have been dating since 2015 and share daughter, Lea De Seine Shayk Cooper.
The 33-year-old supermodel had recently revealed why the couple are extremely private about their personal life. She told Glamour UK: "I have a lot of friends who share a lot of their personal life on Instagram or social media, very publicly. I admire it and I think it's great—but I think it's all about personal choice. Because my work requires me to be out there, I just decided my personal life will be quiet."
"That's why it's called personal, because it's something for you and your family, and I feel happy with it," she added.
