Cooper ‘ready for fatherhood’

Bradley Cooper

Bradley Cooper reportedly wants children by the time he’s 40.

The 39-year-old actor will reach the landmark age on January 5 next year. He is currently dating 22-year-old British model Suki Waterhouse and apparently hopes to have a family with her sooner rather than later.

“Suki is the first woman to come along whom Bradley can really picture a future with,” an insider told American magazine Star. “He plans to start trying for a baby before they even marry! His goal is be a father by the time his 40th birthday rolls around, next January.”

Bradley and Suki began dating early last year and quickly became inseparable, with the actor flying her over to America so they could spend time together.

He has also hinted she is The One and took her as his date to last Sunday’s Academy Awards.

It seems Bradley is preparing to make things official.

“Suki is aware that Bradley wants to marry her, but he’s keeping all the details of the proposal top secret,” the insider explained.

Bradley was nominated for the best supporting actor Oscar this year thanks to his role in American Hustle. It also bagged him a BAFTA nomination and it was while at the UK ceremony last month that he opened up about his relationship.

“She’s wonderful,” he said. “[She’s] the one for me. It feels great.”

Suki has previously discussed how the pair got together. They met at an awards show bash in the UK, with smooth Bradley realizing he liked the model straight away.

“We were introduced and hit it off almost immediately,” she revealed. “We were dancing at the after-party, and he asked me if I fancied going to a club

“He’s a ridiculously good dancer, but I’m a serious dancer too. We make a pretty good duo.”
