Even Eva Mendes can't catch up on sleep after having a baby!
The 40-year-old star was overcome with emotion while speaking about her brother's current cancer battle at last night's 'Stand Up To Cancer' event — and explained the outburst was from being overtired!
"I just had a baby! I hadn't slept. I'm sorry," Eva told the audience while holding back tears. "Thank you so much for inviting me to join you tonight."

"Each one of us in this room that is here tonight, we're here because someone in our family or someone close to us has been affected by this insidious disease," she continued. "Tonight I'm here with my family and my brother Carlos, who I love so much."
