Bradley Cooper rose to fame when he debuted in the popular television series, Sex and the City. After his initial taste of success, there was no looking back for him. Since then, he starred in many movies and television shows and is one of the most popular actors in Hollywood.

The blue-eyed actor is currently dating Russian model, Irina Shayk, who is also known to be carrying their first child. Although the couple has never openly revealed any details about the “secret” pregnancy, Shayk has been spotted with a noticeable bump on several occasions, even at the 2016 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.

After the big New Year celebrations, Bradley Cooper was seen jogging in Santa Monica along with his personal trainer during the early morning hours.

Looking buffed up in his workout attire, the American Sniper star is probably aiming at weight loss for the upcoming year.
