Eva Mendes Steps Out in First Appearance After Giving Birth to Her Second Child
Mendes looked stunning in a floral, capped-sleeve dress, posing for photos with beauty bloggers at the London West Hollywood Beverly Hills-event. Her beauty collection CIRCA launched in 2015, and is available exclusively in-stores at Walgreens and online at Drugstore.com.
Mendes, 42, gave birth to daughter Amada Lee on April 29, naming her after her grandmother. Anda joins big sister Esmeralda Amanda, who turns 1 this month.
The couple managed to keep both of their pregnancies 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.”
They began dating in 2011 after meeting on the set of The Place Beyond the Pines.

Previously Mendes spoke out about the pressure on women in Hollywood to “bounce back” after having a baby, saying “I feel like we can be really hard on each other” about losing baby weight. “That whole term ‘bounce back’ after pregnancy … I don’t like that terminology.”
She added, “Look, if you go into the bikini two weeks after, good for you, but that wasn’t me. I just feel like we as women need to support each other more.”
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.”
