Less than a month ago we reported that Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes were expecting their second child, as evidenced by Mendes wearing a flowy dress and covering her torso with a huge purse.

Now we have confirmation that it was true, because the couple welcomed a baby girl two weeks ago.

TMZ obtained a birth certificate that shows Amada Lee Gosling was born at 8:03 a.m. on April 29 at Providence St. John’s Health Center in Santa Monica. The mother is listed as Eva De La Caridad Mendez; the father as Ryan Thomas Gosling.

The couple are already parents to Esmerelda Amada, who is 20 months old. Weird that the siblings share a first and middle name, no? It’s the name of the 42-year-old actress’s grandmother.

“It means 'beloved’ in Spanish,” Mendes told People in 2014.

Mendes and Gosling, 35, met in 2011 on the set of that weird movie, The Place Beyond the Pines. They welcomed Esmerelda in 2014 after keeping that pregnancy under wraps as well.

An insider told People at the time that Mendes “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.”

But she’s loving life as a mom.

“She’s never been happier,” the source added. “She and Ryan are just in awe of this beautiful person they created. It’s a really special time for them.”
