Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling are reportedly expecting their first child together, with her being seven months along, multiple reports confirm Wednesday.
A source told OK! Magazine, “She’s been ready for motherhood for a while now and to be sharing this experience with Ryan is a dream come true for her!”
The baby buzz has been going on for quite some time now, but Mendes slammed it as “ridiculous” earlier this year during an interview with Ellen DeGeneres. She said, “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, right? And not only that, but there’s a radiation aspect to it, so I always opt out.”
The couple’s camp has not commented on the matter, but sources assert that marriage is not yet in the works. “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,” an insider said.
Should the baby news be true, “The Notebook” star can be expected to be a present parent for his kid. A source said, “Ryan grew up without a dad, so he always said when he had kids, he’d be there no matter what. This is it for him.”
Mendes, 40, and Gosling, 33, have been dating since 2011, with a few rocks on the way. They met on the set of “The Place Beyond the Pines.”
