Has Eva Mendes been ‘in hiding’ because she & Ryan Gosling are expecting?


I’m sorry I didn’t get to this sooner but I didn’t believe the first reports and I thought it could wait until tomorrow. Not so much. First, let me say this: Eva Mendes has been relatively quiet this year. I mean, she’s done some stuff, months ago, but the tri-weekly pap shots have stopped and we haven’t seen Eva and Ryan Gosling together in a while. People Mag even idly wondered back in May if they had already broken up or were close to breaking up. Ryan promoted Lost River in Cannes without Eva, which was weird because she’s actually IN the movie. So, I was expecting more breakup rumors. Instead we get lots of pregnancy rumors

Women of the world who dream of having Ryan Gosling’s baby: Eva Mendes has beat you to the punch! Star can reveal that the Hitch actress confirmed the news to friends that she’s seven months pregnant with her boyfriend’s child.

Despite recent rumors of a breakup, things are going better than ever for the couple of three years. In fact, thanks to the baby news, the relationship has found a new sense of direction, with Eva finally secure in Ryan’s commitment — and even talking marriage!

Throughout her pregnancy, the 40-year-old has been in hiding at her home…but she’s not alone. “Ryan has been by Eva’s side night and day since she found out the happy news,” the insider says. “He’s so amazingly considerate and thoughtful, always taking care of Eva. It’s like he’s already a doting daddy! No one would be surprised if they got married before the baby is even born.”

[From Star Magazine]

I was going to make a big deal about how OK Magazine was the first to report this and how OK is never right… but then Us Weekly “confirmed” it. According to Us Weekly, “An insider confirmed the news after rumors surfaced earlier on Wednesday, July 9, that the Hitch actress is seven months pregnant.” Ah, so that is why Eva has gone so far underground lately, it’s because she’s hiding a bump. SEVEN MONTHS PREGNANT. Damn. Way to keep a secret, y’all.

    I broke up with Gosling years ago but this still hurts.

    And because I’m feeling extra-bitchy, I’m gonna say this: “Band-Aid Baby won’t save your relationship, Eva!”

    There. I feel better.

  2. aims says:

    So are they still together or is he making sure she’s ok for the babies sake? This is a little confusing to me.

  3. racer says:

    Every time I read a story about these two I keep waiting for the big “Gotcha!” are they really a couple? So random.

  4. Nclark6 says:

    I think whether boy or girl, it’s safe to say this kid will have a killer jawline. That’s all I got….

  5. truthSF says:

    The McGosling-ites are freaking the f–k out right now, lol!! This is wonderful news, what a way to get over hump day Wednesday.

  6. Tiffany27 says:

    I can’t imagine either of them parenting. Ah well. Congrats.

  7. Dagmarunger says:

    Hmmm wonder if the hint earlier on was the release of story by ‘Ryan’ on Father’s Day

  8. Sabrine says:

    I won’t believe this until either one or both of them confirms it. So much of this celebrity “news” is just tabloid trash and complete lies. I don’t say it’s not true but let’s hear it from the horse’s mouth.

  9. GiGi says:

    Thanks for the late day post – we were hungry for this, lol!

    Well… I hope they’re happy. And I hope their relationship is really solid. They still seem like an odd pairing to me, but I do wish them luck and congrats on their baby.

    And – 7 months! They have this secret thing down. Can we now assume every time they are papped that they want to be photographed???

  10. alihar says:

    Sooooo disappointing. Was really hoping the break up rumors were true!

  11. Josephine says:

    If she’s pregnant, I have to applaud the fact that she didn’t pose nude, demand a magazine cover, have an public and pricey baby shower, etc… These celebs who make their pregnancies and babies into money-making schemes really bum me out.

    • mercy says:

      She doesn’t have to. It’s all about his career. He throws her a role now and then, she gives him a baby and everyone is happy.

    • stacat1 says:

      That was my first thought too. I am stunned she hasn’t been spotted. That does not roll with her M.O. at all. There is something weird going on. hopefully they are blissfully happy and setting down.
      For someone who has been known to phone a pap or two in her day ;) –this is interesting for EM. Getting knocked up by Gosling…one would think she would be shouting from the rooftops–she might be laying low for the long game–the ring? Who knows? Why at 7 mos is a source talking after not being spotted for ages?
      it’s all weird the way it’s coming out now?

      • mercy says:

        Is their movie coming out anytime soon? ;)

      • Kasey says:

        Honestly, she’s FORTY! In no way is she over the hill and advances in medicine and technology have helped ease natural life/body events on but that’s still a big deal on someone who is having their FIRST kid and already had a miscarriage.

        I know people get all up in arms about 35 being nothing in terms of starting a family for women these days but I think that’s still high risk. For some women depending on previous health, pregnancy history and what happens early in the pregnancy they need to take it easy/stay on bed rest. I volunteer at a pregnancy center and I know that many typically miscarry naturally in that first 3 months and my sister’s first was miscarried at 5 months and with the 2nd she ended up stopping work and able to do very little for the safety of my niece mid-way through. With Eva’s age and supposed history her being holed away for the health of the life she is carrying. I’m always amazed by all mothers who make so many sacrifices for their children long before they’ve left the womb and met them.

        So I guess the gender of Baby Gosling-Mendes will be a surprise too, eh?

  12. mercy says:

    Someone said Eva was pregnant in the CB post about her not going to Cannes for his poorly received directorial debut (in which she has a featured role.) Look it up. I wasn’t sure if it was another fake pregnancy rumour, a good guess, or someone with inside knowledge. Maybe Eva reads CB lol… But it seems like a plausible reason for her to be MIA these past few months, including not showing up to promote their movie.

    Congrats to them if it’s true. He probably wants a baby and she’s getting to the age where it migh be difficult to conceive. If their relationship (be it friendly or romantic) is stable, they might as well go for it.

    • yolo112 says:

      At 7 months and not flying across the world to be there, it makes me wonder if she’s being extra careful, like maybe she’s high risk or something because yall KNOW she would be there to promote anything she’s tied to. OR I should say, to keep a controlling eye on her man..lol..I mean, we’re talking about someone that took DAILY strolls with Ryan’s dog and was photographed every time… *sigh* so disappointing

    • don't kill me i'm french says:

      I was at Pere Lachaise cemetery ( at Paris) the same afternoon than them more 1 1/2 years ago .I can say they were not low-key ,the many paps were not low-key and they followed them all the day .I even saw them at the Eiffel tower with the paps in the night.

    • magpie says:

      I said something like that. It was after she told airport security she was preggers. Plus despite the break up rumors he was driving her car and wearing her jewlery or something like that. It makes sense really.

      • magpie says:

        And while 40 is not old to be having a baby on the west coast, maybe she had some issues and needed bed rest.

      • doofus says:

        “she told airport security she was preggers.”

        oh YEAH! I remember that…and it created quite a hubbub because people were wondering if it was true (“as if she’d say something that newsworthy to the TSA!”) or if she was just saying it to get out of the security check (“damn celebrities always wanting special treatment”).

        good catch!

  13. InvaderTak says:

    Well, that escalated quickly. I mean I just went out for a sub sandwhich and come back to this. Now its leading the interent.

  14. GlimmerBunny says:

    Well, even though they are my least favorite celeb couple and I hope this isn’t true there’s some other (confirmed) baby news regarding one of my favorite celeb couples today: The Downeys are expecting a baby girl!

  15. tealily says:

    Can we parse this? Can we can we?? “Ryan has been by Eva’s side night and day since she found out the happy news” = they DID break up, but only after she tried to trap him by getting pregnant, but she didn’t find out until after the split that she WAS pregnant, and when she told Ryan, he decided to do the right thing and be there for support through the pregnancy, but they actually broke up months ago!! Pleeeeeeease let this be some weird Jeremy Renner situation. I really hate these two as a couple. And I want to believe the “she’s a b—- and he’s amazing” scenario.

  16. QQ says:

    bwahahahhahahahahahahahhahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahhahaha *Continues to cackle heartily at the Gosling Fandom collective heartrending Meltdown*

  17. christine says:

    I could have sworn she previously said in other interviews she didn’t want babies?!?!

  18. Talie says:

    People think they’re so different, but they are both pretty pretentious, so I think they must fit well.

    Radar had a random story months ago about how she was babysitting for January Jones to get ready for a baby. No one paid it any mind at the time, but maybe we should have.

  19. amara says:

    I never even knew these two were together.

  20. Jen34 says:

    I still can’t believe that she is 7 months. She must have been pregnant for real when that airport incident occurred. In retrospect, it seems odd that nobody took that serious.

    Here is a link to the CB post from Feb.3.

  21. ashley says:

    Gosling fans are up in their feelings! Lmao!!! Congrats to them,that child is going to be gorgeous.

  22. Ag says:

    Mazeltov! Way to keep it on the DL.

  23. klutzy_girl says:

    PEOPLE’s confirmed now.

    Congratulations to them! This is exciting news.

  24. Anja says:

    I don’t like her! And Ryan should have dumped her big ass and ugly toes when he had the chance!

  25. Angie says:

    I’m pretty neutral about them but I was amused by her Hate Trending on twitter today. Not alot of well wishes in those tweets Damn

  26. Anastasia says:

    Whatever they’re like on a personality level, this will be one amazingly beautiful baby.

  27. Hissyfit says:

    Noooo! This broke my heart! Lol.

    Why do I get the feeling that this is her last effort to keep Ryan and save the relationship? Weren’t they on and off too? Maybe she’s trying to Make sure if Ryan is the real baby daddy. Lol. Congrats to them I guess!

  28. Marianne says:

    If she is pregnant, then kudos for keeping it so down-low.

  29. KC says:

    Isn’t it really strange and unnatural to not leave your house for four months just because you’re pregnant?

  30. Barrett says:

    40 can be high risk for a baby! Wow hope it’s ok?

  31. Chris says:

    Eva is OK I guess, but as a Gosling fan I’ve always thought he could do better.

  32. Kate2 says:

    I realize that 40 is high risk but let’s not assume that there’s something wrong. Plenty of women have babies over 40, high risk or not. My BFF just turned 40 in May and she’s due in Nov. my other BFF had a baby at 41 a year ago. Both worked out all the way through (first BFF is still preggo but she still goes to the gym). They just take it easy when they go. Everything is probably fine, they probably just didn’t want to announce anything too early just to be safe.

    Anyhow, I don’t get the hate for either of them. I never heard anything bad about either of them. But then again I didn’t pay a ton of attention. I say congrats to both, as long as it’s loved then good for them.

  33. Meg says:

    so you missed work to hide the fact that you’re pregnant? promoting yourself is part of your job and essential to ensuring you stay relevant and seen as ‘bankable’ as an actor-she missed doing that because she and/or ryan want so badly for no one to know she’s pregnant? I could see if you didn’t have to work not being ‘seen’ while pregnant because you don’t have any work commitments where you’ll be seen. but this seems sketchy-does ryan not want this? is he embarrassed? i’m reading she wants to get engaged badly but he doesn’t want to-they don’t sound like they’re on the same page which should have probably been discussed prior to getting pregnant IMO

  34. Miss M says:

    The hey girls are crying unicorn tears right now…
    Congrats to the couple(?)!

  35. Liz says:

    This is great news!!! Love surprises like this!!! Eva is gorgeous and Ryan is not bad either.

  36. M.A.F. says:

    He will always be the 12 year old from the Mickey Mouse Club. Those were some good years.

  37. Izzy says:

    I have to wonder, after the birth when they are leaving the hospital, will mother and baby be wearing matchy-matchy Turbans of Doom?

  38. Dorky says:

    Sorry, but that dude is just fug. Congrats to them,, though. hehe

  39. lisa2 says:

    People Magazine has said YES it is confirmed.

  40. Camille (The Original) says:

    This news is surprising to me as I didn’t think she wanted kids.

  41. jane says:

    I feel sorry for that child. He or she is going to have a very strange upbringing when the parents don’t like to be seen together in public.

  42. Francis says:

    I think Ryan is “sprung” on Eva and they both are quite in love and lust, with each other. Eva is stunning and Ryan is so handsome.
    Congratulations to them both.. A sweet baby for Ryan and Eva.
    I always liked them together.

    I don’t think she trapped him at all, Eva always said SHE didn’t want children. Rumours were Ryan broke it off because she Didn’t want a baby and he did. I think a few weeks after the break up he was spotted climbing a wall or fence to her house to avoid paparazzi. Haha
    I guess she changed her mind. Good luck to them with the happy news.
    Halle Berry just had a baby at almost 50, I don’t think age 40 will be a problem for Eva if she’s healthy and she does appear to be very healthy.

    Eva and Ryan always seem like a sweet couple. All I ever saw was two
    people into-each other when they were out and about, in photos.

    • Lucy says:

      You could be right. However, I saw the opposite. They always look so disconnected when they are together. I never really saw any chemistry, like at all. I kind of think there is something to it. If you are in love, you can tell. Not every second of the day, but you have a way about you the shows you are in tune with each other and genuinely want to be around each other. I never saw that with them. Not even in one picture.

      That being said, a baby is a blessing. So, I hope it works out for them and they have a beautiful, healthy baby.

  43. taxi says:

    She’s beautiful & I’m glad she’s kept this quiet. Shows some taste & restraint.

  44. Val says:

    Something’s not right here. I have a feeling they broke up and then she found out she was pregnant, I don’t get the vibe they are still “together”.

  45. The Original Mia says:

    Congrats to them! And mwahahahaha to the McGosling fans. It’s about time they realized that ship sailed years ago.

  46. GIRLFACE says:

    I also was pretty sure they broke up? I guess when she found out he had a choice to 1.) Be a complete jerk or 2.) Do the right thing and be supportive partner and Dad. I have seen many a good natured guy unexpectedly become a dad and subsequent life partner. It happens. She looks good for 40 but she has a serious case of resting bitch face.

  47. rithe says:

    LOL. Why is is that 2 very famous actors know how to keep away from the paps and not those stupid realty tv stars like Kim K? I bet the Kardashians are now pissed that their boring baby will now be overshadowed by the baby of Ryan Golsing if this is true.

  48. sandra says:

    Nooooo! My heart is broken.
