That headline sounded far creeper than it was meant, I promise. What I meant was, Ryan Gosling is head over heels crazy about being a dad to his new baby girl with Eva Mendes (though that was a direct quote). How do we know how Ryan is feeling about fatherhood? After all, we don’t even know the baby’s name or anything. But one fine civil servant, also known as “a source”, has bravely come forward to offer Ryan’s thoughts on his behalf.
“Ryan is madly in love with the baby,” a source tells PEOPLE of the infatuated father, 33, adding that Mendes, 40, is loving her new title of “mom.”
And the proud parents aren’t alone in their doting: Grandmas Gosling and Mendes are doing their share of pampering, too.
“Ryan’s mom and Eva’s mom have both been helping,” the source says. “They have both been great. The grandmothers are both very excited and both very hands-on – as much as they can be.”
Mendes is “absolutely in heaven being a mom. She’s never been happier,” a source told PEOPLE after the birth. “She and Ryan are just in awe of this beautiful person they created. It’s a really special time for them.”
Well, I’ll tell you one thing – I’ll sleep soundly tonight knowing that! Also, I think this is the first time I have actually felt bad for Eva for being so basic that the angle of the story is about Ryan, despite the fact that she’s the one who carried and gave birth to the baby. Poor girl.
