US Weekly reports exclusively that Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling's baby girl arrived on Friday, September 12. No name has been announced. Which is not surprising. They've never actually confirmed they were expecting in the first place. In fact, when news first broke that she was pregnant, people were still saying (hoping?) that they were no longer together...just because they'd not been photographed in a long while.
Interesting, this timing though.
Last week a press release went out about her clothing line with New York & Company. They're doing a fashion show at The New York Public Library this afternoon - today! - at 430pm. It's not entirely clear to me whether or not she's showing up, but the release promises "surprise appearances". I've attached the full text below.
New York, NY–Eva Mendes and New York & Company invite the media and customers to participate in a series of unique, not to be missed fashion experiences in celebration of Eva’s second Fall collection for the specialty retailer. Three fashion events will occur at three different iconic New York City locations on September 16th 2014. New York City, central to the DNA of New York and Company, will serve as the backdrop against which these events take place. The largest of the three events will occur at 5:30 PM in Flatiron Plaza.
YOUR COVERAGE IS REQUESTED. Media outlets are strongly encouraged to meet us at 5th and 24th at 5:15 PM on Tuesday, September 16th. With surprise appearances, this is an event that must be seen.
The first of the Eva Mendes Collection Fashion Shows is set to occur at The New York Public Library, located on 5th Avenue at 42nd Street. The show will begin at 4:30, when models clad in the A-List celebrity’s Collection will exit a double decker bus and hit the streets with a fashionable vigor, as tourists, passersby, and the public are treated to Eva’s take on the latest trends. The Collection is designed by Eva in New York City; in partnership with NY&C. Nothing is more fashionable than Bryant Park and the New York Public Library, the set for decades of New York Fashion Week shows.
It is at 5:30 PM the Eva Mendes Collection will arrive to Flatiron Plaza, where the most grandiose fashion experience will take place. Guests can join the celebration at this location near the North side of Madison Square Park, located on 5th at 24th Street, with clear views of the Empire State Building in the background.
