Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling are expecting their first child together, it has been reported, forcing women (and probably some men too) the world over to finally come to terms with the fact that Mr Gosling will never be theirs. So dry your eyes guys. It's over.
Several US magazines, including People, Us Weekly and OK! have confirmed the news that 40-year-old Eva is seven months pregnant – which should finally lay to rest any rumours still circling that the actress and Ryan had split.
The couple, who met after starring as parents in A Place Beyond The Pines (although anyone who has seen the film will know that it doesn't exactly paint a picture of happy family life), have been dating since 2011.
However, the notoriously private pair haven't been pictured together since last November, and Eva hasn't been snapped out and about since March, suggesting the actress is keen to keep her impending motherhood under wraps.
Speaking to People, a friend of the actress said that while Eva has said in the past that she wasn't planning to get married or have children, 'with Ryan things are different … she’s very independent but she’s content with her partner. She finally found the person she really wants to be with.'
