Gig Hadid and Bradley Cooper is a coupling no one had on their 2023 Bingo card. And yet, here we are.
After a year-long tryst with Leonardo DiCaprio that saw the actor end up with another younger model, the Guest In Residence founder moved on quickly with a fellow Hollywood heavyweight of the same age.
Photographed together multiple times now, it seems the supermodel, 28, is now getting to know none other than Bradley Cooper, 48.
Multiple sources have insisted that the pair met through friends and bonded over raising young girls while being in the public eye. Hadid co-parents Khai, 3, with Zayn Malik, while Cooper shares 6-year-old Lea de Seine with Irina Shayk, making for one very interesting holiday season, we’re sure.
Though much remains to be known about the new couple (Bragi? Gidley?), they haven’t completely escaped public attention while out and about.
Below, we track all the times Gigi Hadid and Bradley Cooper have been linked or spotted together and what insiders have revealed about the burgeoning romance.
October 5, 2023
Hadid and Cooper managed to evade leaks of their budding romance up until this point, but all came out when the two were photographed getting dinner together at Via Carota in NYC. And before anyone could suggest it was nothing more than a platonic meeting, the diners seemed to confirm it was not by leaving in the same car. Besides, Cooper’s ludicrously casual outfit (which you can see here) screamed that they were already at the ‘comfortable with each other’ stage.

Taking their relationship to the next level, Hadid and Cooper were spotted in his car together again, but this time, they were notably each carrying weekend bags. It’s anyone’s guess where they ran off to for the brief sojourn, but it told us plenty about how things were evolving between the two.
In the photos snapped by Daily Mail, Hadid was dressed down in charcoal denim and ballet flats with her hair swept back into a bun. Cooper looked nondescript in a t-shirt and jeans and carried a discreet duffle bag.

A source tells People that the model and actor are still just getting to know each other but notes it could become serious. “They are having fun,” the insider said. “She’s independent, busy, and her days are filled with responsibilities, so I don’t see anything serious happening right away, if at all.”
Hadid allegedly “had sort of a crush on [Cooper] for a while,” the source revealed, acknowledging an interest from Hadid for something more. “[They have] things in common, so it’s possible to see it progress,” they said. “[It’s] super casual now, but they both have kids, big careers, busy lives and understand what life is like in these circles. It’s cute… and there is an attraction.”

A source speaks to Entertainment Tonight about how the exes feel about the romance.
Hadid’s mother, Yolanda, and sister, Bella, reportedly support the duo. “They think Bradley has the potential to be a good fit for her,” the insider claimed, adding that Hadid’s ex was also wrapping his around it. “Zayn also wants what’s best for Gigi… is learning to accept the reality that he needs to move forward and take care of himself while putting his daughter first and doing what’s best for their family.”
Elsewhere, a source told The Messenger that it was actually Shayk who introduced Cooper and Hadid and that the couple have heaps of mutual friends and bond over their daughters.
“He pursued her, and she was definitely interested and excited,” the source said. “They have been casually seeing each other, but it is extremely new. Gigi has expressed she does not want a serious relationship. They have a lot in common, and both relate to being parents in the industry. She wants to get into acting and is intrigued by Bradley’s perspective and guidance. It is very casual at this point.”

On a rainy day in NYC, Hadid and Cooper were photographed enjoying a drizzle-soaked walk together. Though there was no PDA, it looked clear from the photos that they were enjoying each other’s company.

Inviting her to enjoy his interests, Cooper took Hadid out for a night on the town, kicking off with a showing of the off-Broadway play Danny and the Deep Blue Sea at the Lucille Lortel Theatre.
He cleaned up for the date, wearing a black jacket and beige chinos, while Hadid paired an opulent black and yellow tweed coat with a casual baseball cap. It seems the two might be rubbing off on each other…
