Bradley Cooper brought a special someone with him to a weekend event.
The 44-year-old actor and director made a very rare public appearance with his two-year-old daughter, Lea De Seine, on Sunday at the 22nd annual Mark Twain Prize for American Humour event in Washington, D.C.

For the outing, Cooper wore a black suit with a white button-down shirt, while Lea wore a patterned shirt paired with a black skirt, white tights and a blue vest.
In one photo, the father-daughter duo was photographed watching the event and in another picture, Cooper is spotted sweetly holding his daughter.
According to Entertainment Tonight, Cooper attended the event to help honour his friend and A Star Is Born co-star Dave Chappelle, who was honoured for lifetime achievement in comedy.
Cooper shares Lea with his ex, Russian model Irina Shayk. The former couple started dating in 2015 and welcomed their daughter in March 2017. Cooper and Shayk called it quits after four years together this past June.
According to reports, the pair are battling for custody of Lea.
In February this year, Cooper’s steamy Oscars performance with his A Star Is Born co-star, Lady Gaga, caused a stir as it was speculated the two were in a secret relationship.
But Gaga has denied any romance with Cooper and has since insisted they are good friends.
While they battled for six months to save the relationship, Cooper’s work commitments reportedly clashed with Shayk’s desire for a settled family life.
Cooper – worth an estimated $143 million – spent much of last year promoting A Star Is Born, which was a critical and commercial triumph, earning nominations for eight Academy Awards.
Though Shayk did not believe Cooper had cheated with his co-star Gaga, the pressure of speculation is said to have rocked their relationship.
