Bradley Cooper's Quotes About Fatherhood on Ellen April 2019

Bradley Cooper Says Fatherhood Has Changed Him in "Every Way"

Bradley Cooper opened up about fatherhood and his daughter in a surprisingly candid interview. The typically private actor recently stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show and shared a sweet anecdote about taking his 2-year-old daughter, Lea de Seine Shayk Cooper, on the Guardians of the Galaxy ride at Disneyland. Being that Bradley voices the movie's Rocket Raccoon, the whole thing led to a pretty adorable realisation for his daughter.

Bradley welcomed his daughter with his girlfriend of four years Irina Shayk in 2017. Though she may be 2 years old now, Bradley insisted that Lea hasn't caught the stereotypical terrible twos. "I don't subscribe to that," he said. "I don't even know what that means really."

How has fatherhood changed him? Bradley said in "every way." He explained, "It allowed me to embrace my childlike self without any sort of fear of judgment. I can just play with toys all day long and not feel like, is this weird? Or watch cartoons endlessly and not think I'm wasting my life." Adding, "The innocence is beautiful to see." Watch the heartwarming interview clip above.
