We'll Just Have to Resign to the Fact That This Could Be Worse
If this is a thing that's really going to happen, we're just going to have to resign ourselves to the fact that any biological child of Ryan Gosling (and Eva Mendes, we guess) would be a genetically-blessed being, and if Ryan Gosling is at all involved in the raising of a child, that child's probably going to turn out to be the next Margaret Thatcher or Dalai Lama or Pope or something, because of all the obvious reasons.
Sources are saying that life certainly has changed drastically since Eva conceived, and the two barely even leave Ryan's Studio City home any longer:
"Their lives completely changed as soon as Eva got pregnant. They used to travel all over the place together and go on hikes with their dogs. ... [Mendes has] barely left the house, [and] Ryan has been taking care of her, picking up food and running errands. He has been very supportive about keeping things a secret."
About all the secrecy, the source continues:
"[Eva] just hasn't ever wanted anyone beyond her close friends and family knowing more than they had to. And Ryan is certainly private and always has been."
The same sources also say that Eva is due in October, so in the meantime, we'll be waiting with bated breath ... and you know you will, too.
And there you have it, folks. What's done is done. It sounds like it's the real deal, and even though we still fervently wish that Ryan ultimately ended up with Rachel McAdams (it wasn't over; it's still not over!), it could be worse. He could have impregnated someone like Miley Cyrus or Lindsay Lohan or Rihanna, and wouldn't that be one of the world's greatest pop-culture travesties?
Here, have a watch and a good cry, too:
