She's Actually Pregnant, Isn't She?

by Lia Beck

When reports came out on Wednesday that Eva Mendes was pregnant, the world took the news with a grain of salt — well, except for some people. Some people really freaked out — but now it seems that the report may actually be true. Us Weekly has confirmed that Mendes is pregnant and has spoken to a source about it. Yeah, it's still not confirmed by Mendes or Gosling themselves, but it is more than just a crazy tabloid story that followed in the footsteps of the many other Mendes pregnancy rumors which came before.

According to Us, a source confirmed that Mendes is, in fact, seven months pregnant. It's still pretty unbelievable since seven months is very far along to be able to keep the news a secret, especially for two actors who are often snapped by the paparazzi. Then again, maybe they're just really impressive secret-keepers with extremely trustworthy friends and family. News of celebrity pregnancies generally leaks early on, so it could be that Mendes and Gosling are congratulating each other right now for making it this far.

The site goes on to point out that in an interview on The Ellen Degeneres Show earlier this year, Mendes addressed pregnancy rumors explaining that they really took off when she refused to go through a security scanner at an airport. She said at the time, "It's so ridiculous. It all started because I didn't want to go through the scanners at the airport. You know those X-ray scanners, which are really creepy? They basically see you naked, right? And not only that, but there's a radiation aspect to it, so I always opt out." This interview was in February, meaning that, if Mendes really is seven months along now, she was two months along then.

Obviously, until Mendes and Gosling confirm the pregnancy or she just goes ahead and has the baby without ever making a statement, we won't know for sure. Until then, all we know is either Mendes is extremely sneaky or, ya know, just not pregnant.

UPDATE: People has now also confirmed that Mendes is pregnant.
