Eva Mendes talks babies and motherhood on ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’

Eva Mendes just welcomed her first child, a baby girl named Esmeralda, with boyfriend Ryan Gosling a couple of months ago and she’s finally talking about the whole thing – pregnancy and her reasons for being so secretive, motherhood, baby weight and the like – during an interview with Ellen DeGeneres.

Here’s what she had to say (via US Weekly):

“I think just early on, we decided it’s going to be so hard for her to have privacy,” Mendes said. “We thought this is the first opportunity we can give her to protect her and so that I had a nice calm pregnancy, which I did.”

While Mendes’ pregnancy was calm, her first two months of motherhood have been less relaxing. Asked whether baby Esmeralda, who was born on Sept. 12, is sleeping through the night, the Fast and Furious alum exclaimed, “No! No, God no. She’s 2 months! You know, we’re getting the hang of it, the sleeping thing, but yeah I’m exhausted and it’s the best.”

“Really, I’m so incredibly tired,” she added. “I thought I was tired before at times, but no. Nothing like this, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.”

“The whole bounce back thing… I’m like… ‘Oh gosh. Ease up. It’s okay. We don’t have to…’ you know?” she explained. “I mean, eventually maybe, but certainly not in a couple weeks.”

Despite her relaxed demeanor, Mendes already looks slim and gorgeous, which she attributes to a natural action, rather than hitting the gym for hours on end.

“I’m, you know, breastfeeding,” she spilled. “I’ve always heard it. It really does help to shrink your uterus back to normal size. It does! I know it’s a really weird thing to say, but it does. It’s the best. So it’s breastfeeding is really helping and then obviously you want to be healthy for the baby because she’s eating kind of what I’m eating, so you want to make good choices.”

Well, that’s all very exciting. I’ve never really understood the fascination with celebrity moms/how they’re raising their babies. Women have kids all the time – just because you happen to be rich doesn’t make the process any different, except that you can afford to hire help so that you can actually sleep and not stay up all night with a screaming infant. Happy they’re happy, though – I sound sarcastic, but I do mean it!

Jennifer Aniston still hasn’t set a wedding date

Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux have been engaged for several years now, and while Jen has said before that she’s in no hurry to walk down the aisle, you’d have thought they’d maybe have started to plan a ceremony by now. That hasn’t happened, however, and while chatting with her real-life friend Ellen DeGeneres on Ellen’s show this week, the pair joked about the secrecy surrounding Jen’s big day.

Via US Weekly:

“I am your friend and I know a lot about you, but if I weren’t your friend, I have to discuss the crazy constant rumors of the wedding,” DeGeneres said, introducing the topic of marriage to the conversation.

“I know that I’ll know when the wedding is, but sometimes, because it is so secretive, when we’re invited [over] we’re like ‘I’m not in town….but should we be in town?’” she continued.

Aniston admitted it was a common concern! “Our friends Sacha [Baron Cohen] and Isla [Fisher] showed up for four little gatherings, about a year ago, in beautiful wedding wear. Even for the 4th July last year, Sacha was in a powder blue suit, and Isla was in a little cute dress and we were like, ‘Guys, it’s 4th July, we were in cut offs, eating hot dogs. We will actually let you know!’”

The 45-year-old actress revealed the questioning gets even worse around the holidays.

“For Thanksgiving, a friend of mine said, ‘I can’t come this year, but should I?’”

DeGeneres understood the dilemma. “That one time that Portia and I called, and it was very secretive, like there may be a thing this weekend, we’ll let you guys know where it is, and what time. And we were like, ‘Oooh, should we make that?’” the show host recalled.

“But you didn’t come,” Aniston added, laughing.

“We didn’t come because we didn’t need to,” agreed DeGeneres, cracking up. “I’m very busy. There has to be a wedding for me to stay in town!

So why do you think Jennifer and Justin haven’t tied the knot yet? I don’t think you need to get married to be committed, by any means, but if it’s not important to have that piece of paper, why even bother to get engaged? It all just seems strange… Do you think they’ll ever actually make it down the aisle?

Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi’s Christmas Card is the best

Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi are the best. They’re a great couple with seemingly amazing senses of humour and their Christmas cards are just amazing! Last year, they made this Kimye inspired gem:

And they are not going to let that be their best effort. This year, they’ve continued to be inspired by Kim Kardashian but in a much different way, as you can see above. That infamous butt shot will live in even throughout the holidays!

Ellen DeGeneres recreated Nicki Minaj’s ‘Anaconda’ video and it’s hilarious

Nicki Minaj released her video for ‘Anaconda’ last month and pretty much EVERYONE was talking about it. It was definitely a NSFW affair, but if anyone can bring things back down to earth a bit, it’s Ellen DeGeneres. She decided to create her own version of the ‘Anaconda’ video – or rather, hilariously insert herself in the original – and the results are amazing.

How can you not love Ellen? She’s the best!

Kim Kardashian took a selfie in the middle of her ice bucket challenge

Somehow, Ellen DeGeneres managed to convince Kim Kardashian to do the ice bucket challenge, but of course it couldn’t be done without Kim being Kim. That’s right: she took a selfie while doing the challenge on national TV. Frankly, I kinda thought the ice bucket challenge had died down now, but I guess not…

I don’t think Kim posted this to her Instagram page, so maybe it’s another one for her upcoming selfie book? Ugh, whatever. If you want to see Kim get ice water poured over her head, you’ll have to tune into Ellen’s show today. For now, here’s a preview:

Here’s Ellen DeGeneres’ Oscar Selfie That Everyone Won’t Shut Up About

ellen oscars selfie

I’m sure you’ve seen the above photo about 800 times by now. Ellen DeGeneres decided to take her hosting duties at last night’s ceremony to the next level by getting together some of the biggest names in Hollywood to take the ultimate selfie! We’ve got a little Jennifer Lawrence, some Meryl Streep, Bradley Cooper holding the camera, Lupita Nyong’o and Angelina Jolie, Jared Leto struggling to fit in the frame, a little Kevin Spacey, Brad Pitt, Lupita’s brother, Peter… it’s classic.

There’s not really much to say about this, other than that I really like this and everyone is so handsome/beautiful and that the Oscars seem like a nightmare that I would never attend because getting dressed up to that level is like, my worst nightmare. The end.
