Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes have been super sneaky about the birth of their second child. So much so, that it was just a few weeks ago that we even learned Eva was expecting again.
Those little rascals! Ah, who are we kidding. We can’t stay mad at them. Just look at those faces!
Talk about a quick and easy pregnancy (for us on the outside, anyway). Turns out Eva’s already given birth. It’s as if a stork flew in with a warm little ball of love, and dropped it off at the Gosling/Mendes residence in California without so much as calling ahead.
The baby arrived back on April 29th at St. John’s Health Centre in Santa Monica, without anyone knowing. Good on ya, Gosling clan. That’s an impressive feat, even by Hollywood standards.
Eventually, though, celeb gossip site TMZ got their hands on the baby’s birth certificate, revealing the babe’s name is Amada Lee, which holds an air of importance to mama Eva. “Amada was my grandmother’s name. It means ‘beloved’ in Spanish,” the actress told Violet Grey magazine in 2014.
The couple’s first daughter, Esmeralda, now shares her middle name with her new baby sis. And further to that, Amada was the the name of Mendes’ character in the 2007 flick We Own The Night.
Talk about one solid tribute to Gran.
We know, new families deserve their privacy, but we can’t wait to see photos of the adorable Gosling fam of four. We just hope it doesn’t take another nine months until they’re all out in public together.
