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!

Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling named their baby…

Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling welcomed their first child together, a baby girl, last month, but until now we didn’t know many details, besides the fact that Ryan was apparently a doting father and Eva was just… there. Well, now we seemingly know the name of the baby, since TMZ paid someone to get a hold of the birth certificate.

Gosling and Mendes named their daughter Esmeralda Amada … according to the baby’s birth certificate, obtained by TMZ.

Amada was the name of Eva’s character in “We Own the Night” — and Esmeralda, well … maybe she’s a big fan of the ’96 Disney flick “The Hunchback of Notre Dame.”

Esmeralda! I mean, it’s a bit Disney, like they say, but it’s unique and I quite like it. What would the nickname for Esmeralda be, though? It’s a bit of a mouthful to say all the time. Esme? No, that’s too close to Twilight territory. I dunno, but I do like it.

However, I also think it’s tacky as shit that TMZ went to the lengths of getting a hold of the birth certificate for the sake of being the first to tell the world their kid’s name. Are birth certificates part of public record? I dunno, but I could have lived without that information.

Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling revealed – or rather people found out – that they were having a baby only a few short months ago, and now it seems like they’re already parents to an adorable baby girl.

Hey girl, indeed! Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling welcomed a baby girl on Friday, Sept. 12, multiple sources confirm exclusively to Us Weekly.

Yes, that is exactly the total of information we’ve got. I’m sure more info will be forthcoming, but for now, you’ll have to live on the image of Ryan Gosling cradling a tiny infant to his beautiful chest and be done with it.

Ryan Gosling is already a “caring father-to-be”

Here’s a story you can blow right out your ass: it’s been about a week since we found out that Eva Mendes (GOD HELP ME, I typed “Eva Gosling” at first – please tell me a wedding’s not next!) and Ryan Gosling are having a baby, and already some “source” has gone blabbing to US Weekly about how he shops, cooks and acts like a “caring father-to-be”. Or, you know, like a decent fucking person.

“Ryan goes out and gets the groceries,” the insider tells Us of the Notebook hunk. “[Eva's] been wanting pasta, and he’s cooking her meals.” Adds the source: “Ryan has already stepped into the role of caring father-to-be.”

LOL, okay, Source. Calm down.

I seriously hope this is one of those quotes that a work experience intern made up, because if they actually paid someone to spew this basic bullshit, they got ripped off.

Is this what Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling’s child will look like?

Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes are going to be having a baby soon, and the world is abuzz (yes, seriously) with discussions of what their potential offspring might look like. They’re both good looking people, so will they create good looking kids, or will their hotness sorta cancel one another out and create an absolute minger?

According to forensic artist Joe Mullins, their kid should be okay. Here’s a computer composite of what a boy or girl might look like in a few years:

Not bad, right? It kinda just looks like younger versions of both of them rather than combinations. The boy, especially.

Anyhow, how are you all coping with the pregnancy news? I know it’s not all what we wanted or expected, but everything happens for a reason. This must be the way things are meant to be. Deep breaths.

On a serious level, why does everyone shit all over Eva Mendes so much? Like, I know she’s nothing special, but neither is he, so why is it that she “doesn’t deserve him”? This is a legit question – I don’t know much about her at all, so please fill me in.

Is Eva Mendes pregnant with Ryan Gosling’s baby?!

eva mendes ryan gosling

UPDATE: This is apparently confirmed! Eva is said to be 7 months along, as well, so we’ll be getting a baby Gosling before summer’s end, if that’s true!

STOP THE PRESSES, because apparently Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling, the couple who everyone forgot was together (and was hoping weren’t) are apparently having a baby together. This, of course, should be taken with a grain of salt – some “anonymous source” told OK! all about it.

Women of the world who dream of having Ryan Gosling‘s baby: Eva Mendes has beat you to the punch! The actress is seven months pregnant with Ryan, and she couldn’t be happier. “She’s been ready for motherhood for a while now,” an insider tells OK!, “and to be sharing this experience with Ryan is a dream come true for her!”

It’s been tough to keep up with Eva and Ryan’s relationship. The couple, who started dating in 2011 after co-starring as parents in The Place Beyond the Pines, have been on-again, off-again for the last year, but the baby news is giving their relationship a new sense of direction. “Ryan grew up without a dad, so he always said when he had kids, he’d be there no matter what,” a source says. “This is it for him.”

That promise might not be enough for Eva. Insiders say she’s determined to make their family status official before the baby comes. “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,” says a source. Are there wedding bells and a bundle of joy on the way? Only time will tell!

Look, this is probably BS – just like that story of Ryan adopting a baby that he then lost custody of 6 months later or whatever it was. However, if it is, I guess that’s my hopes of him reuniting with Rachel McAdams dashed. Congrats, I guess?

Newsflash: Eva Mendes Isn’t Pregnant!

ellen

I’m not sure who in the hell started this rumour, but it just goes to show that the press can’t make its mind up, like, ever. First Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling have broken up, and now she’s apparently pregnant by him. According to her, neither of those things are true, but we’re talking specifically about the pregnancy claims here.

Eva appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to discuss the “ridiculous” idea that she might be having a baby. Spoiler: she ain’t.

“It’s so ridiculous. It all started because I didn’t want to go through those X-ray scanners at the airport, which are really creepy. They basically see you naked, right. And not only that, but there’s a radiation aspect to it. So I always opt out. I always ask for a personal pat down.”

Huh. I mean, how much radiation are you being exposed to by the 10 seconds you’re in an airport scanner, girl? You’d rather have people putting their actual hands on your bits than to walk through the scanner? Eh, to each her own, I suppose.

Eva was also asked what she’s going to do on Valentine’s Day, and she apparently thinks she’s hilarious, because this was her response:

“I’m not a big Valentine’s Day person. I’ll probably just order a deep dish and watch The Notebook or something.”

HA! HAHA! SO FUNNY! She probably will do that shit, though – I seriously don’t think they’re still together.
