StarScoop: Bradley Cooper, born on Jan. 5, 1975, is undeniably the total package: brains, good looks, charm, diplomacy and everything else a gal could possibly want in a man. Still, there is a side to him that is well hidden when it comes to emotional matters. When things go wrong, and inevitably they do at some point, Bradley will walk away or dodge issues if humanly possible. But hey, that’s not uncommon.

To keep him in line, he has made a smart move in choosing Irina Shayk as his partner. She’s another Capricorn, born on Jan. 6, 1986. They have a pretty decent astrological comparison, but when it comes to truth and making a big deal out of any form of deceit, you can bet Irina will have the upper hand. She’s beautiful, seductive and can be revengeful if not treated properly.

Their differences are many. Bradley is a Goat with Sagittarius and Libra traits, and Irina is a Capricorn with strong Scorpio influences.

The new addition to the family is Lea, born March 21, 2017. She’s an Aries with her Moon in Capricorn and truly a lucky little girl to be born to two accomplished and dedicated parents.
