Eva Mendes (a mom of two) has a lot to say about fitting into her old jeans

In case you’ve been living under a rock, actress Eva Mendes now has two kids and may be one of the coolest moms in Hollywood. She and partner Ryan Gosling have struck a respectable balance between keeping their private life private, but also opening up a little bit about the joys of parenthood (along with the occasional gushing about each other).

In a recent interview with Extra, Eva chats about the realities of being a mom. Her daughter Esmeralda Amada will be 2 years old in a few days and Amada Lee is only 4 months old.

“They really are little angels. The baby’s 4 months and she’s just the best — she sleeps. It’s amazing — it really is. I’m in that mommy happy place.”


In the midst of all her happiness, Eva has no intention of worrying about her post-baby body. She’s been so busy taking care of her daughters and launching her new new fashion line, the Eva Mendes Collection for New York and Company, that she doesn’t concern herself with losing any baby weight.

“I try to take care of myself as far as eating right and things like that, but especially so soon after a baby, I’m like, ‘It’s okay, I don’t need to fit into my jeans for a while, I’m all right.’ Maybe if I never fit into my original jeans, it’s fine. It’s all good.”


Could we fall anymore in love with her? She and Ryan are still pretty low-key when it comes to sharing their family with the world. On Eva’s Instagram, you won’t see any baby pics anytime soon, but there’s plenty of her new fashion line to keep you entertained.

Kudos to them for sticking to what feels right for them and maintaining their privacy. But we won’t lie — we can’t wait to see how beautiful and brilliant Esmeralda and Amada grow up to be.
