As the king and queen of stealth pregnancy, Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling have managed to keep the news of both of their daughters' births impressively under wraps. As they rarely ever share details about their personal life to begin with, news of the actress' first pregnancy didn't break until she was already seven months along. As for the second pregnancy, reporters found out Mendes was expecting again less than two weeks before she gave birth—except, the world didn't find out she actually gave birth until the next month
