The actress hasn’t been photographed in public for months and a friend told People that she “just hasn’t ever wanted anyone beyond her close friends and family knowing more than they had to. And Ryan is certainly private and always has been.”
The friend added that Mendes has been living with Gosling in his home in Studio City and the couple decided they had to change their active lifestyles when she began showing.
“Their lives completely changed as soon as Eva got pregnant. They used to travel all over the place together and go on hikes with their dogs.”
But Gosling has been the perfect gentleman when it comes to the pregnancy. He reportedly “has been taking care of her, picking up food and running errands,” the friend added. “He has been very supportive about keeping things a secret.”
Mendes was photographed back in March with no noticeable sign of a baby bump and she didn’t show up to Cannes where her and Gosling’s film, Lost River, premiered back in May. But no matter what, it looks like the parents-to-be are ready for their impending bundle of joy.
“This has been a long time coming,” the friend told People. “Ryan and Eva definitely discussed children before. She knows how much he wants to be a dad and he’s going to be an amazing father.”
If the rumors are true, it looks like Mendes is due in October.
