Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes Welcome a Baby Girlby Michelle McGahan | PopCrush
Attention, world: Ryan Gosling is now a dad.
Eva Mendes gave birth to a baby girl on Friday, Sept. 12, Us Weekly reports, making the actress and Gosling first-time parents. So exciting!
The private actors — who have been together since 2011 and starred in 2012’s ‘The Place Beyond the Pines’ — never actually confirmed their relationship, let alone the pregnancy, which was confirmed by sources when she was seven months along. Still, rumors persisted, and we couldn’t be happier for the proud parents, who are undoubtedly over the moon themselves.
“Ryan and Eva definitely discussed children before,” a source told PEOPLE. “She knows how much he wants to be a dad and he’s going to be an amazing father.”
Of course, the news of Gosling and Mendes’ baby is also sending fans into a frenzy, recalling a 2011 interview that the actor gave in which he stated that he “will make movies until I make babies.”
“When someone comes along I don’t think I’ll be able to do both [movies and parenthood] and I’m fine with that,” he said at the time (quote via Us Weekly.) “I’ll make movies until I make babies. I have no idea when the handover will happen.”
Whether or not he will continue to do both, we wish Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes the best of luck — and congratulations!
