Eva Mendes, Ryan Gosling Reportedly Expecting First Child TogetherBy: Meaghan Ellis - July 9, 2014
Eva Mendes is reportedly seven months pregnant!
According to OK! Magazine, an inside source close to the 40-year-old actress confirmed that she and longtime boyfriend Ryan Gosling are expecting their first child together.
Several media outlets began speculating about Mendes’ alleged pregnancy back in February when she refused to walk through an airport security scanner. She was reportedly overheard explaining to a TSA worker that she was pregnant.
When she appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, she was asked about the incident and the rumored pregnancy. The Hitch actress quipped about the incident and immediately refuted the rumors.
“It’s so ridiculous,” Mendes told DeGeneres. “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 pat-down.”
The We Own the Night actress may have been able to conceal her baby bump back in February, but now it’s probably a bit difficult to hide! The source also shared details about the pregnancy and Mendes’ sentiments of becoming a mother.
“She’s been ready for motherhood for a while now,” a source told the tabloid Wednesday. “And to be sharing this experience with Ryan is a dream come true for her!”
Mendes began dating the 33-year-old actor back in 2012 after they both co-starred in The Place Beyond the Pines. Their relationship has been reportedly “on the rocks” for several months now. However, the source revealed that the pregnancy has helped to mend their relationship.
“Ryan grew up without a dad, and he always said when he had kids, he’d be there no matter what,” said a source. “This is it for him.” Although both are excited about parenthood, marriage is still said to be a debatable topic between them.
“Ryan doesn’t think they need to marry just because they are having a baby,” revealed another insider. “But Eva believes it’s important to have their lives fully intertwined.”
Only time will tell if wedding bells are in their future!
