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.)

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

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 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.”

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.”

Eva Mendes on Naming Daughter Esmeralda Amada: ‘We Love the Hunchback of Notre Dame

09/16/2015 at 08:40 PM ET

Actress and fashion entrepreneur Eva Mendes isn’t letting Hollywood’s standards dictate her view on motherhood.

Mendes, appearing on the The Wendy Williams Show on Wednesday to promote her New York & Company line, opened up about her life as a new mom, naming her daughter and how she feels about the pressure on women in Hollywood to “bounce back” after having a baby.

“I feel like we can be really hard on each other,” the 41 year old said when asked about losing baby weight. “That whole term ‘bounce back’ after pregnancy … I don’t like that terminology.”

She adds, “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.”

Things might get a little hectic when Eva Mendes‘ family comes for a visit — but the Lost River star and mom to daughter Esmeralda Amada, who turned 1 last Saturday, says it’s the best possible chaos.

“When my mom and sisters visit, they take over the house. They take my baby! They start cleaning everything! They sound like a bunch of hyenas, yelling in Spanish, English, Spanglish,” Mendes, 41, tells Glam Belleza Latina for its fall issue.

The new mom says that the tight-knit crew loves to sing to her daughter — and their tunes unlocked memories for the star, who grew up in a Cuban community in Los Angeles and says her mom still brings her home-cooked meals once a week.

“They sing [Esmeralda] all these Cuban nursery songs that I forgot my mom used to sing to me,” she explains. “They’re like a raucous crew … It’s incredible. I really appreciate my family, now more than ever. I’m so happy that my little girl gets to grow up with this.”
