From movie parents to real ones: Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling, who started dating after playing parents in The Place Beyond the Pines, are reportedly expecting a child, the first for either of them. A friend of Mendes' tells People that the 40-year-old actress had never planned marriage or children, but "with Ryan things are different … she's very independent but she's content with her partner. She finally found the person she really wants to be with." The couple are fiercely protective of their privacy—and Gosling can turn fierce if anyone calls Mendes "baby"—but sources tell OK! that she is seven months' pregnant.

Robert Downey Jr. and his wife, Susan, also have a baby on the way, and the Iron Man star announced it in his usual laconic fashion, E! Online reports. "Yo. Susan. Me. Baby. Girl. November. Scorpio?" he tweeted. On his Facebook page, he said: "Um. I don't know if it's a 'man's world', but I'm certain women run it. Susan and I are therefore delighted to announce we are expecting a baby. Girl." The couple had a son in February 2012, and Downey Jr. has a 20-year-old son from his first marriage, who was recently arrested on drug charges. (More Eva Mendes stories.)
