Ryan Gosling, Eva Mendes Name Baby Daughter Esmeralda
The proud parents have decided to name their little girl Esmeralda Amada Gosling, according to the baby’s birth certificate obtained by TMZ. The document also states that Mendes gave birth at the Saint John’s Health Center in Santa Monica, Calif. on Sept. 22 at 10:22 a.m.
Though the reasoning behind Esmeralda’s moniker is still unknown, her middle name — “Amada” — is the name of Mendes’ character in 2007’s We Own the Night.
Gosling, 33, and Mendes, 40, started dating after meeting on the set of 2010’s The Place Beyond the Pines. Mendes’ baby news broke in July, though neither of notoriously private stars ever spoke about it during the actress’ pregnancy.
This is the first child for the couple.
