Eva Mendes just gave birth to her first child ten weeks ago, appearing on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” to talk about life as a mommy.
Ellen had to rib Eva a little about denying she was pregnant the last time she was on her show.
Ellen took the opportunity to call Eva out for lying about her pregnancy the last time she appeared on the show, greeting her with “Hello, liar”!
Eva explained, “Not really because I was so early on and all mom’s will understand, you’re not supposed to tell anybody during your first, well certainly not the world, in your first trimester. And my mother didn’t even know yet. So that would have been an awkward phone call. ‘Hey mom did you catch Ellen today?’ Um, oops!”
The 40-year-old actress, who has kept her pregnancy and baby with Ryan Gosling very private, teased the audience with a fake photo of two-month-old Esmeralda.
Ellen showed the image of Eva and her baby daddy, saying, “‘I mean Ryan Gosling is the dad so you can imagine how gorgeous this baby is. Between the two of them… She looks like both of you. I mean really, she looks like both of you doesn’t she? It’s hard to say who she’s more like.”
Eva laughed adding, “Yeah, very exotic”.
Eva replied, “No! No, God no. She’s two months! You know we’re getting the hang of it, the sleeping thing, but yeah I’m exhausted and it’s the best.”
Ellen thanked the actress for making an appearance, saying, “Well thank you for being here this is kind of the first time you’ve been out of the house putting a dress on. So thank you for doing that.”
Mendes credited breast-feeding for her weight loss, saying, “It really does help to shrink your uterus back to normal size. It does! I know it’s a really weird thing to say, but it does”.
Ryan Gosling, 34, has been filming “The Nice Guys” in Atlanta, Georgia and has been flying home to LA to see Eva and Esmeralda.
