The A Star Is Born actor/director, 47, and Abedin, 45, have been dating for a "few months" and were introduced by Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour.
The high-profile pair arrived together at the Met Gala on May 2 and then split up for the red carpet. Pictures show Abedin, 46, in a canary-yellow gown posing for the cameras, with Cooper, 47, keeping his distance behind her.
Cooper shares 5-year-old daughter Lea De Seine with ex Irina Shayk. He and the model, 36, broke up in 2019 after four years together.
Abedin, the longtime aide to Hillary Clinton, shares 10-year-old son Jordan with her ex-husband, disgraced former congressman Anthony Weiner.
Cooper and Abedin share many interests. "They are perfect for each other," the source continued. "They're both into power and politics and human affairs."
If this couple is actually a reality, this could be the New York City couple of summer 2022. It’s going to be hard for them to dodge the paparazzi now that their alleged secret is out in the open
