Bradley Cooper and ex Irina Shayk arrive separately at their six-year-old Lea’s school in New York City

Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk kept their distance as they arrived separately at their six-year-old Lea’s school in New York on Wednesday.

While the exes have maintained an amicable co-parenting relationship since their split in 2019, an eyewitness told DailyMail.com that the Maestro star, 49, and the 38-year-old Russian model ‘completely avoided each other’ during their latest spat .

After the 12-time Oscar nominee dropped off his little girl, her mother ‘walked in herself’ about five minutes later.

Soon after, Shayk left ‘the school for coffee’ before quickly returning.

Cooper looked handsome in a dark blue peacoat, jeans and white sneakers with gray accents as he left the building with both hands buried in his pockets.

Both of Lea’s parents have both moved on from each other romantically. Cooper is currently in a relationship with Gigi Hadid while Shayk is dating Tom Brady.

Despite choosing to ignore each other, Shayk recently called the actor “the best father” she could dream of for their child.

In November she told Elle that they have ‘always made it work’ when it comes to co-parenting.

‘We both take Lea with us everywhere. She is super easy. Two days ago I had to go to the gym, so I just got her a drawing book and said, ‘Mama work out.”’ she explained.

The catwalk queen continued: ‘She drew for an hour. Then we went to the Michael Kors fitting. She met all the girls. Michael handed her a bag. She drew him a cat.’

Irina added that even when Bradley is in the middle of filming, they plan a schedule that works for both of them, saying: ‘We always find a way.

‘He is the best father Lea and I could dream of. It always works, but it always works because we make it work.

‘I share my work well because I have decided to keep my personal life private. That is why it is called personal, because it is something that belongs to me. If one day I feel like sharing it, I will.’

Reflecting on her own career, Irina admitted she finds the practice of categorizing models as ‘commercial’ or ‘fashion’ very poignant, and sees her work simply as something that pays the bills.

Speaking in a mock contrite tone, she said: ‘I’m so sorry I did this underwear job,’ before dismissing the idea that she was no longer in financial straits.

“It doesn’t matter if I do now,” she said. ‘I have to pay my bills. I don’t have a rich husband. I don’t have a sugar daddy, so I have to pay.’

Irina also raises her daughter to be aware of why she works so hard, explaining that when Lea complains about going away, she tells her: ‘You want to go on holiday, right? Do you want to go shopping? So I’m going to London. You’re going to be with Daddy because Mummy has to work.’

“When I look at my daughter now, she’s growing up in a completely different environment,” the cover girl marveled.

‘She lives in the West Village. She went to all these countries within two months. But we want her to know the value of things. We want to show our daughter: ”You have to work hard to get something.”

Irina, who grew up in Yemanzhelinsk, a small town in Russia, admitted she came from a ‘humble background’ but never thought she ‘wanted a different life.’

When her coal miner father died when she was 14, Irina said she felt a responsibility to ease the strain on her mother, who was now a single parent raising two daughters.

She explained: ‘My dad always wanted a boy. He loved us, but when he died, I kind of felt like, ”I have to take care of the family.”

‘I always thought I was born in the wrong body. I hated being a girl. I remember fighting with my mother; she wanted to dress me in something floral.

‘I wanted dark colors and something solid. It wasn’t that I wanted to be a boy, but I felt like, ”I don’t belong in my body.”

Irina moved to Paris when she started her modeling career, but had a mixed reaction to her figure.

“I’ve had agents say, ‘You need to cut your hair, lose 20 pounds and go blonde. And I was like, “Absolutely fucking no.”’

No stranger to criticism and commentary on social media, Irina maintains that she is not a people pleaser and the opinions simply come with her work.

She said, ‘That’s what you get. Not everyone is going to like you. And I don’t want everyone to like me. I am who I am.

‘I’m not going to change because someone who has nothing to do in their life say some bulls**t about me or the way I dress or the way I parent. No, get your life together.’

‘Gigi was introduced to Bradley by Irina (Shayk) and their mutual friends in the industry,’ a source previously said The Messenger.

“Gigi and Irina have dated over the years while working together, and Gigi and Bradley have dated before, but it’s always been friendly in social settings,” the source continued.

Bradley and Gigi have a lot in common, including having children from previous relationships.

“Gigi and Bradley have been in touch recently, and were bonding over their daughters, when Bradley asked her out,” a source said Page Sixbefore adding, ‘He pursued her and she was definitely interested and excited’.

Gigi co-parents three-year-old daughter Khai with ex-boyfriend Zayn Malik, 30, who dated on/off for nearly five years before their final split in late 2021.
