Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling have revealed their daughter’s name.
Her name is Esmeralda Amada Gosling, according to a birth certificate obtained by TMZ.
The document confirms that the actors welcomed their first child together in Santa Monica on September 12.
Her names are thought to have been Disney inspired.
While Esmeralda is the name of the gypsy girl in the 1831 Victor Hugo novel The Hunchback Of Notre-Dame – and the subsequent Disney movie based on it – the pair may also have picked Amada from fiction.
It is the name of the character Eva played in the 2007 movie We Own The Night, and also means ‘beloved’ in Spanish.
The couple clearly turned to Eva’s Cuban heritage when it came to choosing their daughter’s moniker, as Esmaralda is the Spanish word for ’emerald’.
Both Ryan and Eva kept a low profile during her pregnancy and they have not been spotted in public since the birth.
