However, the question on everyone's lips has been whether the A-list duo welcomed a baby girl or baby boy.

Well, now we can reveal the new parents welcomed a baby girl and have given her the unique name, Lea de Seine Shayk Cooper.

So, what's the inspiration behind the unusual moniker?

According to etymology, 'Lea' is a Greek name meaning 'bringer of good news' which, when you think about it, kind of makes sense.

I mean, it's pretty good news when you find out you're having a baby with Irina Shayk, right?

Meanwhile, 'de Seine' refers to the world's second largest river in France that divides the centre of Paris.

The French-inspired name may derive from Cooper's love of the European country, after he spent six months living with a family in Aix-en-Provence during an exchange programme while he was in college.

The pair – who have been dating since 2015 – have also been spotted on numerous occasions strolling through the centre of Paris, where Bradley was living in the early days of their romance.

Bye bye #Paris
