Women of the world who dream of having Ryan Gosling‘s baby: Eva Mendes has beat you to the punch! The actress is seven months pregnant with Ryan, and she couldn’t be happier. “She’s been ready for motherhood for a while now,” an insider tells OK!, “and to be sharing this experience with Ryan is a dream come true for her!”
It’s been tough to keep up with Eva and Ryan’s relationship. The couple, who started dating in 2011 after co-starring as parents in The Place Beyond the Pines, have been on-again, off-again for the last year, but the baby news is giving their relationship a new sense of direction. “Ryan grew up without a dad, so he always said when he had kids, he’d be there no matter what,” a source says. “This is it for him.”
That promise might not be enough for Eva. Insiders say she’s determined to make their family status official before the baby comes. “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,” says a source. Are there wedding bells and a bundle of joy on the way? Only time will tell!
