The 22-year-old model, who has been dating the actor since feb 2013, has reportedly started looking for a new house for them, reports contactmusic.com.
“Suki is in love with Bradley, and she wants a place for them to share,” a source told Ok! Magazine.
The couple want to stay close to Coopers’s mother Gloria, whom he invited into his home here following the death of his father Charles in 2011.
“Suki is aware that she needs to tread carefully … she’s trying to figure out how to make it work for everyone. Suki knows Bradley wants to take care of his mom, but he’s almost 40, and she wants them to start sharing their lives, like any normal couple,” the source added.
Waterhouse recently admitted she is desperate to “settle down” and make a permanent home for herself.
The model said: “I don’t really live anywhere. We’re travelling gypsies – it’s wherever we’re working. But I’m desperate to have a home. I’m saving, but it’s hard because of the online shopping … I’m addicted, it’s something about the packages arriving.”
Cooper also recently expressed his desire to settle down with Waterhouse and start a family.
He said: “I would love to be a father one day. I’m sorry my father won’t be around to see his grandchildren, but he knows fatherhood was something I was looking forward to. That’s my next big step in life.”
