Last June, the A Star Is Born actor opened up about fatherhood when he made a guest appearance on the Smartless podcast.

He also explained that as an actor, he might experience “breakthrough” moments on set, but when it comes to parenting, he admitted, “You have 40 of those moments every day with your kid.” That’s that level of joy.’
Bradley stepped into the role of father when he welcomed his daughter into the world with his then-girlfriend Irina in 2017.
