TORONTO — Canadian actor Ryan Gosling and his girlfriend, actress Eva Mendes, are proud new parents.

The couple welcomed a baby girl on Friday, Sept. 12, according to multiple reports.

It is the first child for both stars.

There has been no comment from reps for Gosling or Mendes, who kept the pregnancy under wraps for months.

Gosling, 33, has been dating Mendes, 40, since 2011 after working together on The Place Beyond the Pines.

Ontario-born Gosling has brought Mendes to Canada to meet his parents — his mother Donna in Burlington and his father Tom in Cornwall — and on a day trip to Niagara Falls, where they were spotted riding a ferris wheel.

Mendes also accompanied Gosling to his mother’s 2012 graduation ceremony at Brock University in St. Catharines. The couple later attended the Toronto International Film Festival to promoteThe Place Beyond the Pines.

Gosling previously dated Rachel McAdams, his Canadian co-star in The Notebook.

Mendes had a long relationship with filmmaker George Augusto.

In February, Mendes shot down pregnancy rumours during an appearance on Ellen. “It all started because I didn’t want to go through the scanners at the airport,” she said.
