Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling have been the subjects of a rumor throughout the past week, with several reports saying they are splitting up. That couldn't be further from the truth, according to E! News. So does that mean the couple might be tying the knot soon instead? After all, Eva Mendes recently gave birth to Ryan Gosling's daughter, Esmerelda.

Not so fast.

"Neither felt the need to get married, it's just not a huge priority for either of them. They know what they have," a source tells E! News.

How do you suppose rumors of a split got started? It likely came from someone on the set of The Notebook star's latest film endeavor, The Nice Guys. He's been filming nonstop in Atlanta in early December, and Eva Mendes has yet to be seen on set visiting.

"Ryan and Eva are super-super-private. The last thing they'd do is bring a baby, who's barely 3 months old, to a film set teeming with paparazzi. Ryan specifically wanted it like this—with paps following him in Atlanta, they're mostly leaving Eva and the baby alone," the source explains.

It seems Eva Mendes constantly sends pictures of little Esmerelda to her daddy, which the new father reportedly loves. Mendes, it seems, is still getting used to what it means to be a mom.

"The baby is still not sleeping through the night yet so [Eva's] tired. She's also still getting used to breastfeeding—it's not easy. But she's happily in nesting mode," the source says.

Fans will no doubt be thrilled to know that there's no trouble in paradise for Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling. But if they hoped to hear of wedding bells in the near future, they will have a bit of disappointment in that arena. Fortunately all is well for the couple--the family, now--since adding a baby to the mix can sometimes add some stress to any relationship.
