This morning, dark, dark news from OK! Magazine: The tabloid reports that Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes are expecting a baby.
Under most circumstances, this news warrants a big congratulations—not only because the two will undoubtedly spawn the most beautiful child on the planet, but also because Mendes is allegedly seven months along (according to OK!), which calls for a major high five for keeping the news secret that long.
But for those of us out there who have done everything from profess our love for Ryan Gosling by writing long, embarrassing odes and shamelessly creating weird photoshop makeout photos with his image to comparing him to the best cookies on earth and making lists of all of our favorite Ryan Gosling items, this news comes as a bit of a whomp.
It would be wise to remember that this is merely a rumor, since OK! has the intel from one of those trusty “insiders,” but it’s probably best that we all collectively prepare ourselves. The source told the site, “[Mendes has] been ready for motherhood for a while now, and to be sharing this experience with Ryan is a dream come true for her!” Well, duh.
So where to go from here? I feel it’s best to put on a happy face and wish these two beautiful people luck. And then spend the day looking at his abs as consolation.
Update: People Magazine has confirmed the news. Congratulations to the parents-to-be!
