Eva Mendes and boyfriend Ryan Gosling are expecting their first child according to a source close to the stars who spoke with OK! Magazine. The source said that Mendes is seven months along and is excited about becoming a mom!
“She’s been ready for motherhood for a while now,” the source told the mag. “And to be sharing this experience with Ryan is a dream come true for her!”
The couple began dating in 2011 after shooting crime drama The Place Beyond the Pines together.
Representatives for the actors had yet to respond to requests for a comment as we went to press.
The baby news comes five months after Mendes, 40, denied rumors she was expecting after asking to undergo a manual body search at an airport security checkpoint instead of walking through the X-ray scanners.
She laughed off the speculation at the time, telling U.S. talk show host Ellen DeGeneres, “It’s (the baby rumours are) so ridiculous. It all started because I didn’t want to go through the scanners at the airport. You know those X-ray scanners, which are really creepy? They basically see you naked. 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… (Tabloid reporters thought) that was good enough reason to say ‘Hey (she’s pregnant)’.”
When DeGeneres pressed her further about whether there was any truth to the pregnancy rumor, Mendes replied, “Oh God! No, no no!”
Mendes previously dated filmmaker George Augusto, while Gosling, 33, enjoyed romances with his The Notebook co-star Rachel McAdams and Sandra Bullock.
