Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes may just be the most private couple in Hollywood, so fans were shocked when news broke yesterday that the 33-year-old hunk and the 40-year-old beauty are expecting their first child together.

What's more? The Hitch star, who has not been photographed in three months, is reportedly seven months pregnant, according to OK! magazine, who was first to report the baby news.

So how did these two go from co-stars to parents-to-be? Let's take a look back at their romance:

September 2011: Gosling and Mendes were first romantically linked when they were snapped enjoying a PDA-packed trip to Disneyland, where they put their love on full display at the Happiest Place on Earth.

November 2011: The couple enjoyed a romantic date at the legendary Père Lachaise Cemetery in Paris. Talk about dead sexy!

December 2011: The good-looking duo cozied up in bed together for Funny or Die's "Drunk History Christmas."

February 2012: While Ryan filmed his flick Only God Forgives in Thailand, his ladylove was spotted visiting the sexy stud.


May 2012: After finding themselves at the center of breakup speculation, the two quashed split reports after they were photographed holding hands while on a romantic stroll in NYC. Oh, and did we mention Eva couldn't help but giggle like a little girl in love when she discussed her BF during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show just one week prior?

June 2012: Gosling immediately ignited a Twitter storm when he adorably brought Eva to his mom's graduation (and instantly left every girl swooning).

June 2012: The gorgeous twosome managed to fit in some quality time together up north at the Niagara Falls Amusement Park.

November 2012: The Place Beyond the Pines costars celebrated the Thanksgiving holiday together and were spotted strolling the streets of Manhattan arm in arm.

March 2013: The couple sizzled at the premiere of the Derek Cianfrance-directed drama, looking every bit the part of the picture-perfect pair.

September 2013: The Ghost Rider star was asked about her relationship with Gosling in an interview with The Edit and admitted that she has trouble talking about her famous beau. "I'm sorry. I'm shutting down," she said. "I'm such a weirdo. I literally lose my ability to speak—and you were doing so well."

October 2013: Mendes is spotted walking Gosling's dog.

February 2014: After having not been photographed together in four months, the duo, once again, becomes the subject of split reports, but the rumors are quickly put to rest after Gosling is photographed peeking his head over Eva's fence at her Hollywood Hill's home, seemingly confirming the couple is very much on (a rep for Mendes also denied the split).

July 2014: Multiple reports claim the two are expecting their first child together. And, according to Ellen DeGeneres, they're bound to have the "most beautiful, bilingual, part-superhero, well-dressed romantic baby ever."

Can't say we disagree.
