Eva Mendes has that new mom glow!
The actress appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show Wednesday, just 11 weeks after welcoming her firstborn daughter, Esmeralda Gosling. Host Ellen DeGeneres began the interview by playing a clip from Mendes' previous appearance on the show—when she denied being pregnant. "Liar, liar," the comedienne told her guest.
So, did Mendes lie to DeGeneres' face?
"Not really, because I was so early on. All mom's will understand, you're not supposed to tell anybody during your first—well, certainly not the world—in your first trimester," she said. "And my mother didn't even know yet. So that would have been an awkward phone call. 'Hey, mom, did you catch Ellen today?' Um, oops!"
Mendes hasn't shared a photo of her baby with the public. "Do you mind if I show a picture first?" DeGeneres asked.
"The one I sent you?" the actress asked. "No."
"I mean, Ryan Gosling is the dad, so you can imagine how gorgeous this baby is," the TV host said. "Between the two of them..."
Just then, a composite photo of Mendes and Gosling appeared on the screen behind them.
"Isn't she adorable?" Mendes asked. DeGeneres smiled and replied, "She looks like both of you. I mean really! She looks like both of you, doesn't she? It's hard to say who she's more like." The Hitch actress said she couldn't "stop staring" at the composite and joked that the faux baby looked "very exotic."
"You're putting makeup on her already," DeGeneres kidded. "She's really pretty."
DeGeneres and Mendes also looked at composites of other celebrity couples.
