Reportedly, the “Notebook” movie star and his girlfriend Eva Mendes, who have been dating for about three years, are expecting their first baby together.
The OK! Magazine claims that Mendes is seven months pregnant with Gosling’s baby, and she could not be happier.
““Eva is thrilled. She’s been ready for motherhood for a while now and to be sharing this experience with Ryan is a dream come true for her!” a supposed insider told the tabloid.
A source also said wedding bells may ring soon, too: “Ryan doesn’t think they need to marry just because they are having a baby, but Eva believes it’s important to have their lives fully intertwined.”
Another source said: “Ryan grew up without a dad, so he always said when he had kids, he’d be there no matter what. This is it for him.”
Earlier this year, however, the 40-year-old actress laughed off her pregnancy rumors when appeared on Ellen DeGeneres show.
Mendes then said: “It’s so ridiculous. It all started because I didn’t want to go through the scanners of the airport, you know those X-ray scanners, which are really creepy. They basically see you naked. And not only that, but there is a radiation aspect to it so I always opt out. I always ask for a personal patdown.”
The last time Eva was pictured at a public event was on March 19 in Cerritos, Calif., when she stepped out to launch her spring campaign for New York & Company, so she might shows us her baby bump in short time soon, in case she’s really 7-month pregnant. Although her reps haven’t yet commented on her condition.
The 33-year-old heartthrob and the gorgeous brunette met on the set of “The Place Beyond the Pines” in 2011, where they played parents, and their first public date as a pair was a trip to Disneyland in Anaheim California. Eva even revealed how great Ryan was with the real-life baby who played their son in the movie.
“[Ryan] loves babies, and he loved playing with the little boy who played our son. It was adorable to see him in that light,” Eva gushed while promoting the film.
Eva recently said working with Ryan on his directorial debut, How to Catch a Monster, was the “most beautiful experience” she’s ever had, reports Daily Mail.
She said: “It’s actually the most beautiful experience I’ve ever had working on a film. He really created the most beautiful, collaborative, creative atmosphere on set. I know I’m biased but I don’t think it’s just coming from me, he’s the best.”
Meanwhile, according to various sources their relationship was on the rocks recently. In October it was reported that the couple had ended their romance. However, already a month later Mendes addressed the rumor joking:
“I’m not a big Valentine’s Day person,” she said. “I’ll probably just order a deep dish and watch The Notebook or something.”
Ryan Ran was dating his Notebook co-star Rachel McAdams, and was linked to his Murder By Numbers co-star Sandra Bullock from 2001 to 2002. While, Eva was serious with musician George Augusto for nine years. She was also linked to Jason Sudeikis before she met Gosling.
