Eva Mendes on Having a Funeral and a Baby in the Same Week: It Was ‘Beyond Heartbreaking – But Also Beautiful’

08/02/2016 at 03:45 PM ET

Eva Mendes is opening up for the first time about losing her older brother Carlos to cancer and giving birth to her second daughter — now 3-month-old Amada Lee — with partner Ryan Gosling just 12 days later.

“Losing my brother brought our family closer, and we were already close to begin with. So to just see everybody be there for one another and show up, I feel so lucky to have them,” Mendes, who celebrated her 42nd birthday in March, says in Latina magazine’s September issue.

“And then they were there for me when Amada was born,” she continues. “We had a funeral service for [Carlos] and that same week I had the baby. So it was really, really intense and obviously beyond heartbreaking, but also kind of beautiful.

“Being totally honest, I don’t feel like I’ve really processed that yet,” Mendes adds.

It’s another girl for Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes!

The actors welcomed their second daughter, Amada Lee Gosling, at 8:03 a.m. on Friday, April 29 in Santa Monica, California, TMZ reports. Amada joins big sister Esmeralda Amada, 20 months, at home. (“Amada was my grandmother’s name. It means ‘beloved’ in Spanish,” Mendes explained in 2014.)

While some celebrity parents rely on a full staff of helpers to raise their kids, Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes prefer a more hands on approach.

“They are not a typical Hollywood, celebrity family,” a source tells PEOPLE of the private couple. “First, they don’t have a nanny. Instead, Eva’s family, including her mom, help out.”

The source adds that Gosling and Mendes — who is pregnant with the couple’s second child — do not rely on assistants either, and that “Ryan often grocery shops and runs errands.”

When one parent is working, the other will stay home with their daughter. “They are very hands-on parents and seem to very much enjoy it.”
