Congrats to second time parents, Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling!
The notoriously private couple, who met on the set of Beyond the Pines in 2011, welcomed baby girl Amanda Lee Gosling on April 29, in Santa Monica, California, according to a birth certificate obtained by TMZ.
With news of her pregnancy only surfacing a few weeks earlier, Mendez, 42, did a pretty good job of keeping her pregnancy under wraps with only a few reports of the actress hiding a bump on her way to and from various events. The couple have already remained remarkably quiet about Amanda’s big sister, Esmeralda, who was born in September 2014.
After her oldest daughter’s birth, Mendes chatted about being a mum for the first time at age 40 with her friend and Violet Grey founder Cassandra Huysentruyt Grey. Back then, she addressed why the couple chose to be so secretive about Esmeralda, and we’re guessing the same logic held true the second time around.
“Whether we like it or not, privacy is going to be very difficult for Esmeralda,” she shared. “I think it’s unfair but that’s our reality. So Ryan and I decided early on to give her as much privacy as we could. And my pregnancy was the first opportunity to give her that.”
Although we haven’t seen any pictures of baby Amanda yet, there’s no doubt Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes have made another beautiful baby girl. Congrats to the happy family!
