Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes Expecting Second Child

Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes have another baby on the way!

The actress is pregnant, a source confirms to PEOPLE. Mendes was photographed on her way to a doctor’s appointment Thursday.

Reps for the couple did not immediately respond to request for comment.

This will be the second child for the pair, who already have a 19-month-old daughter, Esmeralda Amada.

The private duo began dating in 2011 after meeting on the set of The Place Beyond the Pines, in which they played parents.

Gosling, 35, and Mendes, 42, managed to keep their first pregnancy a secret for several months, with an insider explaining that Mendes “just hasn’t ever wanted anyone beyond her close friends and family knowing more than they had to. And Ryan is certainly private and always has been.”

While the actress had said in the past she wasn’t planning to get married or have children, “with Ryan things are different,” a friend told PEOPLE. “She’s very independent, but she’s content with her partner. She finally found the person she really wants to be with.”

Gosling recently opened up about his happy family life in an interview with Hello! magazine, saying, “I know that I’m with the person I’m supposed to be with.”

The stars have kept their daughter out of the spotlight since her birth, but a source previously told PEOPLE that Gosling is “madly in love” with Esmeralda, and Mendes is loving her life as a new mom.

“She’s never been happier,” the source said of Mendes. “She and Ryan are just in awe of this beautiful person they created. It’s a really special time for them.”

Nicole on

Ugh. I don’t like these two. Where has he been? She messed up his career.

Nicole on

Correction: I’m not a big fan of hers. I’ve liked Ryan since Murder by Numbers

Melissa Kelly on

O.O Wow, guess the news about their orgy with Ryan and Blake was true!!!

guest on

Congrats! I hope they call her daughter Esme.

glorianafoster on

Congratulations to both of them! They are a beautiful couple!

Shay on

Her career was tanking, so now she’s on to motherhood. Hopefully, she’s better at that then she was at acting.

Jen on

Congrats to them!

And they are proof that celebrities can live their lives without broadcasting all their personal details to the public.

Debbe on

ZIKA is deforming babies and has already hit America…why risk this? I would not chance this in my lifetime. I don’t understand why people don’t realize how serious this is. Even if it hits just one family, it is one family too many.

Melinda on

Can’t these people get married and commit before having babies?

Gloria on

It’s soooo adorable that all these celebrities are having these sweet children out of marriage! Not!

maryann on

Daily Mail has pictures of them and their daughter on Halloween. I don’t understand why Daily Mail gets pictures that US publications can’t .

sue's on

Wowee must baby news day… Congrats to all couples with this beautiful news… First Ryan and Blake and Now Eva and Ryan…

Sara Campbell on

Okay, I get it. Ryan, you’re never going to leave her and come find me. It will take a while for me to process this fully.

jenn on

@Nicole I’m so with you!

PNM1002 on

Um…he’s not married to Eva. He’s married to Blake Lively! Hello People Magazine???

Sarah on

@PNM1002 Ryan Gosling is with Eva Mendes. Ryan Reynolds is married to Blake Lively.

Kel on

When I was growing up, women in their 40s having babies was unheard of. Now it’s normal.

stinky on

congrats to them! i guess they are happy, since they are expanding their family. Congrats again

stinky on

to Shay…..u r so negative.

EDIE Koller on

I will take Chris Hemsworth over Ryan Gosling anyday.

stinky on

she’s a pretty lady

Just Saying on

I respect that they choose to live a private life. Blessings to their family!

wow on

So she’s never wanted marriage and kids, but finds shacking up with Ryan Gosling ok, and babies maybe ok-er…so she’s pregnant at 42?! Not safe, too old. Google the incidence of birth defects after age 34 if you don’t agree. And before you say you could be happy with a child with birth defects, consider your child’s feelings and welfare above yours.

Ugh. I don’t like these two. Where has he been? She messed up his career.

Are you serious Nicole? Are oyu implying he has no mind of his own, can’t make decisions etc?
Stop assuming people are so weak!

Holly on

Crap, I guess this means the first one wasn’t a mistake.

Hope on

Congratulations to them! Babies are a blessing.

Dysturbed on

Nicole, where he’s been is in The Oscar Nominated movie the Big Short last year, a movie that’s about to come out with Russell Crowe, etc.

Melinda,
So you have to be married to have forever and committed? Yeah right. Look at Drew Berrymore, how many failed marriages has she had now? If these two are committed to each other whether they are dating, engaged, or married….it is their prerogative.

noorilhuda on

She wants to have kids – he is around and available. The relationship won’t last beyond the 2 babies.

jane on

Kel, you must not know many Catholics. In the 60’s, my grandmother had a baby at 40 then had twins at 42…

Anonymous on

Women have had babies in their 40s as long as I can remember, and I’m in my 70s, for goodness sake. I have seen women in their 20s have babies with Down’s Syndrome, and I’ve seen women in their 40s have babies with no issues whatsoever. Nothing is written in stone, regarding no babies after age 34…..

L on

I like their discretion…. Refreshing ! Congrats to them Both

If you don’t know the difference between then and than, you probably shouldn’t be commenting on anyone’s “career”.

Vamanos on

They don’t want us to know, so I don’t want to read about it. I’ve stopped caring about those two.

guestie on

Is she gonna hide out for the entire 9 months like last time? Why even make an announcement? just surprise us in the fall!

bigdoggsite on

Wow, did not know those two were an item. Man,, I was wondering why she never called me.

rm on

I like them and I like what she shared about parenthood.
Mum had me at 41 and my sister at 42. No reason why they cannot have another healthy baby.

sally on

Never good to be older than your husband and she is 7 years older! Yikes!

SB529 on

Marriage does not mean a relationship will last. Look at Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn, together over 30 years , not married, but still happily committed to each other! I think most kids would rather have committed parents that stay together, than one’s that end up divorced and hateful towards each other!

Ashley on

Congrats to them, but darn it we’ve lost Ryan to an old lady like Ashton in the past.

Jess on

Nicole, he was just in a movie, but hasn’t done great. I agree with you. She’s ruined him. Like Ashley said, it’s like Ashton’s mistake of going to Demi.

Jennifer on

Also chime in on not knowing many catholic’s My husbands grandmother (turning 97 this year) had her last child (of 10) at age 44. He is a very successful doctor, by the way.

ms Sanchez on

Congratulations to the both of them. How sweet.

Leoung on

She keeps getting pregnant hoping he will marry her. Just another BabyMama two children out of wedlock.

Vanessa on

Didn’t know she is older than him, happy for them anyway.

Anonymous on

Vamanos, yet you clicked on the article and commented.

She ruined him? Hilarious. It’s also funny how many of you act like you know them. You know why she is dating him, how long they will last and why. Name the last time you had dinner with either of them. Just say YOU don’t like them, but to say she ruined him and he will leave after two kids? Please, you know nothing.

China on

I ‘ve seen many quotes by Ryan stating how much he LOVES his BABY BUT ( unlike when he was going with Rachel McAdams ) , not A WORD about being in love with Eva HMM…..Even in 2016 a man in love wants to tell the world (like he did with Rachel ) Eva is Cuban descent ( like me ) our upbringing frowns on a big belly and NO RING. I would NOT be feeling great about my relationship if I were MISS Mendes. EVA , Ryan can afford ($$$$$) to get married!

Martika Diaz on

@China You’re Cuban like Eva…. congratulations. That’s a coincidence so am I mamita. However, I will not pretend to know the familiar dynaics of every cuban to live, because I am cubanita. Does it also skate pass your mind that its religion that folsters the indignity of children before marriage. With that logic forication is also a sin and is frowned on, but pretty sure you’re not a virgin. If so congrats, but I dout it. 2nd You keep obsessing over Rachel McAdams and what he did in that relationship. Yet we’re is that relationship? Yep out with the fishes. It’s been dead for 8 yrs. or so and its not coming back so I wouldn’t use that for reference at all. They tried twice and couldn’t even make it work past 3 months the 2nd time. That speaks of lust, passion and maybe a little love. But not true love. Even Allie and Noah made it work after the 2nd try at it. Speaking of Rachel he mainly talked about what she was like as an actress not they’re relatioship. He’s been in two high prog=file relatioships prior to his curren one and got burnt petty bad by the press with his 2nd. So I’dbe gun shy at talking about it to randoms too. But if you really need a declarartion of love to Eva try the final credits of SNL where he says it as clear as day, but you and many others aren’t trying to hear the man. And he really doesn’t have to prove his relationship to your or the rest of John Q Public. That’s being a man not a boy. I can’t tell you how many relationships shouted to the roof tops on social media etc. I’ve watched visibly implode. It’s fun to watch, but it’s also sad that people perceive that as a viable expression of love. It’s not what they tell others its what they show you. personally. And yes China he can affor to marry her,but she may not want to marry him or need to and vice versa. Prior to these two even being a thing he stated during promotion ofBlue Valentine how he only wanted to do so when he was ready and not because of societal pressure (people like you) telling him he needed to. Eva has said more than a little bit how she doesn’t want marriage even wile happily involved in a prior relatiionship. I know people change they’re minds but maybe its just not for them at the moment. And you know what tha’s ok. Just ike all these marriages ending in divorce or people marrying, because its fun to them. If they are committed to each other oood for them, because that is what matters not a ring. I really wish you’d reseach the history ofthat tidbit. Things like sign of submission/ownership mixed in with more romantic terminalology… facnating. I digres worry less about them and focus on you. And CONGRATULATIONS if so to the lucky new parents!
