Bradley Cooper recently made a heartwarming appearance at the premiere of the family film IF, accompanied by his adorable daughter, Lea De Seine Shayk Cooper. The premiere took place just a day after Cooper attended Taylor Swift's Eras Tour in Paris with girlfriend Gigi Hadid.

At 49, Cooper showed off his casual style in black slacks and a matching pullover sweater, while his 7-year-old daughter Lea charmed everyone with her colorful pink dress and sparkly blue shoes. As they walked the red carpet together, Lea excitedly pointed out her father's character, Ice, on one of the posters, bringing a proud smile to Cooper's face.

In IF, directed and written by John Krasinski, Cooper lends his voice to Ice, an imaginary friend.

The film boasts an impressive cast, including Ryan Reynolds, Steve Carell, Emily Blunt, Matt Damon, Maya Rudolph, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Louis Gossett Jr., Jon Stewart, and Sam Rockwell. The movie’s teaser trailer invites audiences into a fantastical world with the tagline: "What if everything you believed as a kid was real? From the imagination of John Krasinski, enter a world you have to believe to see."

Lea's Red Carpet Moments

Lea’s attendance at the premiere was not a surprise, as she previously joined her father on the red carpet for the Maestro premiere in December.

For that event, she wore a Dolce & Gabbana leopard-print chiffon dress, accessorized with a red purse and sparkling gold flats. In June 2022, Cooper opened up about how fatherhood has profoundly impacted his life. Speaking on the SmartLess podcast, he shared, "Fatherhood is … everything changed.

Every single thing is absolutely shaded by, or brought into glorious colors, by the fact that I get to be a father to a wonderful human being." Cooper co-parents Lea with his ex, Irina Shayk. In an April 2023 essay for Harper's Bazaar, Shayk discussed their shared commitment to teaching Lea the importance of kindness.

"We're teaching our daughter that the most important thing is to be kind to people. Every time we send her to school, we're like, 'Just remember kindness and love,'" Shayk, 38, wrote. The highly anticipated family film IF is set to hit theaters on Friday, May 17, promising to bring a touch of magic and imagination to audiences everywhere.
