Eva Mendes Gives Birth in Secret – Report
Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling appear to have pulled off a major coup by having a child in secret. A birth certificate obtained by TMZ suggests the couple became parents again last month, when little Amada Lee Gosling was born at Providence St. John’s Health Center in Santa Monica, California.
Mendez is listed as the newborn’s mom and Gosling the father. Rumors of a pregnancy started swirling in February after the actress was spotted trying to hide what looked like a baby bump during a photo shoot in Los Angeles, but neither star commented on the reports. The couple’s first child, Esmeralda Amada, is 20 months old. Amada is the name of Mendez’s grandmother, according to TMZ. Mendes and Gosling have been an item since meeting on the set of The Place Beyond the Pines in 2011. Representatives for Mendes and Gosling have yet to confirm the baby news, which comes almost a month after Mendes lost her older brother Juan Carlos Mendez, to cancer. He died on April 17, almost two years after he was diagnosed with throat cancer in 2014. The actress shared a touching photo with her ailing brother at a Stand Up to Cancer benefit event in January, 2015, on social media. In the picture, Mendes has her arm around her brother and she simply captioned the sweet snap with a heart emoji.
