Congratulations are in order for Eva Mendes, 40 and Ryan Gosling, 33. The actress and is now proud parents of a healthy baby girl. Sources tell Us Weekly that Mendes gave birth on Friday, September 12.
Mendes has remained shielded during the course of her pregnancy, only being spotted out in public just a few times over the past nine months. It wasn’t even until July that sources confirmed that Mendes was indeed pregnant with Ryan’s child.
During an interview with Ellen DeGeneres seven months ago, Mendes flat out denied pregnancy rumors that had already began circulating. “It’s so ridiculous,” she said back in February. “It all started because I didn’t want to go through the scanners at the airport. You know those X-ray scanners, which are really creepy? They basically see you naked, right? And not only that, but there’s a radiation aspect to it, so I always opt out.”
Reports of Eva’s pregnancy first started after she refused to go through an airport scanner at LAX. “The story about her refusing to go through the airport scanner because she is pregnant is false,” her rep told HipHollywood back in February. “She never said any such thing to the TSA inspectors and has never gone through a scanner and has always elected to be hand checked at security. The whole story is a fabrication.”
Welp, it’s safe to say that the star was indeed pregnant and so much for denying her relationship with Gosling, whom she started dating in fall 2011.
Congrats to the lovely couple.
