EVA Mendes has opened up surprisingly about losing her sibling to cancer and bringing forth her second little girl with Ryan Gosling under two weeks after the fact.
The 42-year-old uncovered to Latina magazine when her older sibling Carlos passed from cancer, it united her relatives.
“Losing my brother brought our family closer, and we were already close to begin with,” she said.
“So to just see everybody be there for one another and show up, I feel so lucky to have them.”
Mendes, who invited little daughter Amada Lee in April, had figured out how to keep her pregnancy mystery until just before she gave birth — a great accomplishment given her and Gosling’s A-rundown status.
