While some of us may be having trouble coping with the idea that Ryan Gosling is about to become a father, when it comes to Ryan himself? He’s not worried at all. In fact, it sounds like he’s pretty excited to be a dad in the near future — and friends of the Gangster Squad star and his girlfriend, Eva Mendes, say that the couple is completely overjoyed about entering parenthood.

The news of Ryan and Eva’s pregnancy first broke earlier this week, and was confirmed by a close friend of Eva’s. The shock of the news is still wearing off — especially since the couple hadn’t been spotted together in awhile — but it definitely sounds like the former The Place Beyond The Pines co-stars are getting used to the idea a lot more quickly than we are.


“They literally could not be more excited,” a source close to the couple tells People. “She’s feeling great.”

We have a feeling that pregnancy is going to agree with Eva, who the Gosling/Mendes insider claims is perfect for Ryan because she’s “like a dude” in that she’s outgoing and not too prissy. Since their personalities mesh together so well, they’re all set to become a parenting dream team.

“Ryan adores kids. He has such a way with them,” another source has said in the past. “He loves being around kids and can’t wait to be a dad.”

The best part of Ryan becoming a dad? The photos we’ll inevitably see of Ryan loving on his son or daughter. The only thing more adorable than Ryan Gosling: Ryan Gosling holding a baby. And maybe a kitten.

Congrats, Ryan and Eva! We can’t wait to meet your little one.
