Eva Mendes & Ryan Gosling Welcomed Baby No. 2 With a Sweet & Familiar Name

Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes baby name

Dude, weren't we just talking about Ryan and Eva like a week ago?! Did nine months just pass us by without anyone paying attention? If you're like us, you're probably shocked to hear that Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling had their second child -- and in April no less.

(Talk about staying out of the public eye.)

While news outlets were confirming Eva's second pregnancy in mid-April, as it turns out, "Ryva" were only a couple weeks away from welcoming their daughter. Eva gave birth on April 29, and is probably home with her kiddos and her feet up getting the last laugh.

But you know what's just as interesting as Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling having their second child?

Baby number two's name.

Folks are scratching their heads as to why Ryan and Eva named their second daughter Amada Lee Gosling, especially when you consider "Amada" is the middle name of their 20-month-old girl, Esmeralda Amada Gosling.

As much as we all might pause at the thought of giving a child their sibling's middle name, it kinda connects them, outside of that whole blood relative thing. Plus, Amada is Spanish for "loved" or "beloved," which is quite fitting for a baby name. (It also happens to be the name of Eva's late grandmother, so maybe that's why the couple decided to reuse it.)

Now, back to this whole baby number two business ...

Personally, I think Ryan and Eva are in the wrong industry. Yeah, they can entertain us on the big screen, but obviously their real talents lie in wizardry and the art of deception. Forget Olivia Pope and her team, if you need to keep something on the down low -- or covered up from the public eye -- just call these two.

I'm not saying that I personally needed a baby announcement (one would've been nice), but a simple message would've sufficed to prepare my heart for such shock.


All jokes aside, I'm very happy these two were able to maintain their privacy for the sake of their family. And who knows, maybe they're already planning for baby number three -- or their marriage.

Congrats, Eva and Ryan!
