The two are, however, well-versed at hiding major life events. They welcomed their second daughter, Amada Lee, on April 29 — but Mendes kept most of the pregnancy under wraps, and the world remained clueless until two weeks before the birth.The actors remained similarly quiet on the birth of their first daughter, Esmeralda Amada, who was born in September 2014. “The Notebook” star and actress-model met in 2011 while filming “The Place Beyond the Pines.” Though they seldom divulged details of their relationship, Gosling gushed about his partner in a December interview. “I know that I’m with the person I’m supposed to be with,” he told Hello! magazine, adding that that the only quality he required in a woman was “that she’s Eva Mendes. There’s nothing else I’m looking for.”
