Mendes pregnant with Gosling’s baby?

Hollywood stars Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling are set to become first-time parents. Mendes, 40, is said to be seven months pregnant, according to numerous US reports.

The actress and Gosling, 33, began dating in 2011 after shooting crime drama The Place Beyond the Pines together.

The baby news comes five months after Mendes denied rumours she was expecting after asking to undergo a manual body search at an airport security checkpoint instead of walking through the X-ray scanners.

She laughed off the speculation at the time, telling US talk show host Ellen DeGeneres, ‘‘It’s so ridiculous. It all started because I didn’t want to go through the scanners at the airport.

‘‘You know those X-ray scanners, which are really creepy? They basically see you naked. And not only that, but there’s a radiation aspect to it. So I always opt out.’’

When DeGeneres pressed her further about whether there was any truth to the pregnancy rumour, Mendes replied, ‘‘Oh God! No, no no!’’

Mendes previously dated filmmaker George Augusto, while Gosling enjoyed romances with his The Notebook co-star Rachel McAdams and Sandra Bullock.
