Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes are expecting their first child, but judging by a past interview, it seems as if Eva never really thought that she’d have kids at all! Find out what she said about motherhood below!
Women around the world are still sobbing, clutching their DVD copies of The Notebook, following the news that Eva Mendes, 40, is pregnant with Ryan Gosling‘s beautiful baby.

“I’m certainly not thinking about being a mum at the moment,” Eva revealed in a 2007 interview with the Sydney Morning Herald. “I can’t imagine it. I’m too selfish but I really want to get a pet pug. I’ve wanted a puppy for the past year but I’m not here all the time and that just wouldn’t be fair.”
Yep, you read that right — Eva essentially compared owning a dog to motherhood.
But hey, we hear you — that interview was a long time ago! Eva and Ryan have been dating for three years now, and three years with Ryan Gosling will change any woman’s mind about motherhood and settling down.

Indeed, Eva has long been vocal about her commitment phobia, and a rumor was circling in late 2013 that the couple were on their way to splitting because of it! However, it looks like she’s settling down with her onscreen baby daddy for good, and we love that. They’re obviously so happy together!
That said, Ryan and Eva are not planning on marrying any time soon. “Ryan doesn’t think they need to marry just because they are having a baby,” a source revealed to OK! mag, though Eva may have changed her views on commitment entirely. “Eva believes it’s important to have their lives fully intertwined,” their source finished.
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Do Eva’s past comments on motherhood have any bearing on how she’ll be a mother, or has she just changed significantly in the intervening years? Will Ryan and Eva end up marrying, or are they going to pull a Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie? Let us know!
