The 47-year-old movie heartthrob is in the midst of a swirl of rumors that he has gotten back together with his little girl’s supermodel mother Irina Shayk.

Bradley and Irina added grist to the rumor mill last week when they were spotted spending Thanksgiving together with Lea De Seine.
The previous week Bradley and Irina were seen exchanging affectionate glances as they took a stroll together without their child.
Bradley and Irina retained a famously close co-parenting equation since their split in 2019 after a relationship that reportedly lasted four years.
Reunion rumors went into overdrive early last week when they were spotted getting affectionate during a stroll in New York.

The dashing movie star wrapped an arm around the Soviet-born supermodel, who was seen with her hand on his rear end.
Irina and Bradley previously set the rumor mill churning over the summer when they reportedly took Lea De Seine on vacation together.
At that time there was even speculation that Bradley and Irina were mulling the prospect of having another baby.
Pouring fuel on the fire, a Page Six insider alleged: ‘It was a real family getaway and they are considering getting back together.’

The source asserted that Irina ‘would like her daughter to have a sibling,’ and Page Six reported Bradley was amenable to the idea.
Although Bradley at the time was rumored to be dating Hillary Clinton’s confidante Huma Abedin, Page Six reported they were only ever casually involved.
Meanwhile Irina’s dating history includes Cristiano Ronaldo and last year she was briefly linked to Kanye West in the wake of his split from Kim Kardashian.
She and Bradley were first linked in 2015 before going public as a couple in 2016, welcoming their little girl in 2017 and then going their separate ways two years later.

Shortly after their breakup TMZ reported they had decided to split custody and to both remain based in New York in order to make joint parenting easier.
In fact she and Bradley are such close co-parents that they have made sure to live just blocks apart in Greenwich Village in order to raise their daughter.
‘He’s a full-on, hands-on dad – no nanny,’ Irina told Highsnobiety last year. ‘Lea went on holiday with him for almost two weeks – I didn’t call them once.’

Bradley is currently directing Maestro, a biopic of Leonard Bernstein, the Broadway composer of such legendary shows as West Side Story and Candide.
Leonard was married to Chilean actress Felicia Montealegre from 1951 until her death of cancer in 1978 in spite of the fact she knew he was gay.
Bradley is playing the leading man, with Carey Mulligan as Felicia in a cast that includes Maya Hawke, Matt Bomer and Sarah Silverman.
