The 42-year-old actor and the blonde beauty's relationship has never been better after news broke that they were expecting their first child, and wedding bells could soon be on the cards.

A source previously said: "Engagement or marriage may happen under the radar because they are very private people.

"They see themselves spending their lives together and building a family with more than one child. They are in an extremely happy place between the two of them."

Irina is said to be taking the pregnancy very well but is "more tired than usual" with all the travelling she is doing.

A source previously said: "Irina is doing pretty well. She has some food cravings because she's pregnant. She is not the kind of woman to count calories, but she has been taking it easy. She's also exercising in moderation.

"She is more tired than usual. She has been travelling a lot and hasn't had time to see Bradley but plans on seeing him very soon. They are in communication a few times a day. They are really happy and can't wait to have their baby."
