A-list Hollywood couple Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling have babies on the brain! A source close to the duo exclusively told Closer Weekly that Eva, 45, wants to have another child with longtime love Ryan, 38, and they’re ready for a baby boy next!
“Eva’s radiant when she’s with her family and she’s come out of her shell a lot. Eva’s been yearning for one more and [it’s] even better that Ryan is on board,” the insider said. “He’s happy with two [kids] but knows if he didn’t give in she’d be sulking, so he said OK and he’s glad he did. He’s pretty easygoing.”
The actor and actress previously welcomed their first child, daughter Esmeralda Amada Gosling, 4, in 2014 and their second child, daughter Amada Lee Gosling, 2, in 2016. “They’re definitely trying and hoping for a son this time. Their relationship has had its share of snags but their kids are the glue that keeps them together. They’re very excited and they feel closer than ever. The spark is back too,” the insider added.
Since he became a dad, Ryan now reportedly “puts family first” over his showbiz career — and couldn’t be happier about the change in his life. “His priorities have definitely flipped; family is first now, career second. Ryan loves being a dad to his daughters more than anyone knows. He’s always been a natural with kids, but his girls Esmeralda and Amada have completely changed his perspective on everything he’s done in life,” an insider recently told Life & Style Weekly.
As for Eva, she’s focused on being a mom, too, and recently revealed that her girls don’t even know she’s an actress! “I’m just Mom to them, and they never see me get ready for anything,” Eva previously explained to Entertainment Weekly. “It’s very important for me for them to see me as just Mom, and I’m just, you know, a messy mom. When I go out with them, I really don’t put an emphasis on how I look — not yet.”
Closer Weekly reached out to Eva’s rep for comment on this story and did not hear back.
