Even though Eva Mendes denied pregnancy rumors earlier this year, it is now being reported that she and boyfriend, Ryan Gosling, are in fact having a baby. A source confirmed that the actress is about seven months into the pregnancy already.
At the beginning of this year, rumors began to spark that Eva Mendes was pregnant because she declined to go through the scanner at the airport. When Mendes went on the Ellen show, she called the situation and rumors “ridiculous.” The actress said that the scanners give off radiation, and the people looking at the images can see her naked, so she always opts out, describing the whole experience as “creepy.”
However, it appears that Eva Mendes might have known back then she was having a baby with Ryan Gosling, and that is why she refused the scanners and then lied about it. The couple has always been very private with their relationship, so it is no surprise to fans that they kept the pregnancy a secret this long.
Ryan Gosling was also involved with a baby rumor on Fathers Day this year. A fake Facebook post began circulating; claiming it was a post written by the actor himself. The post described how the actor adopted a baby boy from a friend that passed away, but sadly, the real father fought him for custody and won. The fake post said Gosling loved being a father and was sad the baby was taken away. Fans were quick to offer support, however, the actor’s rep quickly denied the post was real.
Mendes and Gosling have been quietly dating since 2011. In the past three years, they have kept a low profile, and are only rarely photographed together. This is the first child for Mendes, who is 40, and Gosling, who is 33. Interestingly enough, the couple co-starred as parents together in the movie, Place Beyond the Pines.
Mendes and Gosling also worked together on Gosling’s directorial debut, How to Catch a Monster. The actress gushed about the experience, saying it was the most beautiful experience she has ever had working on a film. Mendes also praised her famous boyfriend, saying he created the most collaborative, beautiful, and creative atmosphere on set, and he really was the best to work with.
It has been reported that Mendes has been ready for motherhood for a while now, but Gosling was not ready to settle down. Gosling admitted that while he was fully committed to the relationship, he did not feel the need to settle down and get married. The source claims that Mendes is more conservative, and thinks that they should get married, so their lives can be fully intertwined, but Gosling does not agree. The source also adds that if Gosling were to have children, he would be there for them no matter what, because he knows what it is like to grow up without a dad.
Even though numerous reports are claiming that Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling are having a baby together, the couple has not released a statement confirming it. Reports also claim that the two are now seriously considering marriage. If the rumors are true, congratulations are in order, and fans will undoubtedly be excited to welcome the beautiful couple’s baby.
