Cooper and Scarlett welcomed their first child on August 24, 2020 in Los Angeles. At the time, Cooper told PEOPLE that he and his wife were “filled with so much joy” and “couldn’t be happier”.

In late October, the Air Force reservist completed a deployment to the United States at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst in New Jersey, where he helped resettle Afghan families after coming to the United States.

Cooper opened up about the impactful experience in a post on his Instagram page alongside images of scenes from the base.

“It has been extremely rewarding to support families starting a new chapter in their lives in the United States,” he wrote. “Beautiful days are coming for our Afghan friends.”
