Ryan Gosling & Eva Mendes Celebrate Daughter Esmeralda's First Birthday

Admit it, there are certain celebrities whose babies you're dying to see. More than likely on that list will be Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling's daughter, Esmeralda, who celebrated her first birthday over the weekend.


You can stop waiting by the mailbox now, as the likelihood of scoring such an invite would be over Ryan's hot -- I mean dead -- body.

Feel free to check Eva's Instagram, but just know there's not so much as a peep, let alone a reflection in the mirror of her daughter Esmeralda. You do have to credit these two with their ability to enjoy a life away from the cameras -- considering Eva was like seven months pregnant before anyone realized the couple was expecting.

Us Weekly reveals "insider secrets" regarding baby Esme's first birthday bash, and while there aren't any photos to go along (sad, I know), we can only dream how the shindig went down.

For starters, the two were probably in bed when they realized they needed to finalize their birthday plans. "Hey girl," Ryan probably said to Eva. "Let's just keep this low-key." Eva likely responded, "Cool, I'll look on Pinterest."

Given Eva comes from a good-sized family (attendees reportedly noted most guests were from Eva's side), you can only imagine how hands-on her mom, sis, and others were -- taking much of the planning stress off this mama's shoulders.

And how sweet was it of Ryan's older sister Mandy to bake a cake for the occasion? Hopefully she made sure there was enough to go around.

From how it sounds, the party was very intimate and full of love -- and hopefully some dancing.


Let's just hope that one relative who's always turned up at the wrong places forgot to RSVP.

Overall, I think Ryan and Eva had a good time and are looking forward to next year.

Happy birthday, Esmeralda!
