Eva Mendes has spoken about how the birth of her baby daughter Esmeralda has put everything into perspective – and how she appreciates her mother even more. The actress and her partner Ryan Gosling welcomed their little bundle of joy last September, after largely keeping Eva's pregnancy a secret.
"Now I understand so much," said Eva, speaking on Extra. "My mother's never gotten more 'I love you so much mummy' texts, I mean, randomly… yeah, I get it now."
The brunette beauty also said that while her six-month-old is sleeping through the night now, baby Esmeralda will occasionally surprise her mum.
