Parenting is a cornerstone of a child's upbringing. While having a child adds up the responsibilities, it furthermore pushes parents to go out of their way to take care of their offsprings.
Similarly, after the actor, Bradley Cooper welcomed his first child with supermodel Irina Shayk not everything was the same anymore. Both of the parents embraced the change to provide their little one with all they could.
Here is the list of some adorable parenting quotes from Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk revealed during different interviews.

In September 2018, Cooper while speaking to NPR's Morning Edition he revealed how becoming a father impacted his career.
The actor-turned-director explained, "So I guess having a child, and having a family of my own—which is a miracle and something I've always dreamt of—has opened me up, even more, I guess, to the day, and to be present." He also joked, "Well, I've been opened up to a world of children's music, that's for sure..." before adorably confirming that "everything is different when you’re a dad."

In his interview with NPR's Morning Edition, the Alias actor also revealed how his own upbringing impacts how he parents his kids.
Speaking of his A Star Is Born co-star, Cooper said, "Here's the other thing which connected Stefani [Germanotta, Lady Gaga's given name] and myself right away, is that we were very, very loved as children. And when I meet people that have had that similar upbringing, I can just see it in them. And that's the thing I want my daughter to have—I just always want her to feel loved."
Similarly, Shayk also spoke about how her own upbringing influenced her family life with Cooper. She told Glamour UK in February 2019, "I’m from Russia and in Russia, a family is one of the most important things."

Speaking to E! News in October 2018, Shayk explained, "I think now a woman has the freedom to work and to be a mom and to be herself.

"One of my friends said, 'Oh, you just posted a sexy picture. You’re a mom now!' And I just said, 'So what!' I think it’s really about who you are, who you wanna be and I really feel you just have to stick to your thing. I don’t believe anyone should have to change just because you’re a mother!"
The Victoria's Secret model confirmed her outlook by telling the publication, "In this modern world, in the 21st century, I really believe that if you have a baby, it doesn’t mean that you have to wear a long dress."
