New mom Eva Mendes sat down with “Extra’s” AJ Calloway to talk about her new bundle of joy, daughter Esmeralda, and her appreciation for motherhood.
“Now I understand so much, my mother’s never gotten more 'I love you so much mommy' texts, I mean, randomly… ya, I get it now.”
The 41-year-old confessed she’s getting some sleep these days, but not as much as she'd like, saying 6-month-old Esmeralda sleeps through the night, for the most part, “But you never know, right, something random can happen and she’s just suddenly not sleeping through the night and you're like, wait, I thought we were sleeping through the night, what’s up?!” She laughed, “Why does it always happen at three or four in the morning?!”
Mendes also revealed to Calloway her secret rule for keeping Hollywood’s hottest leading man happy at home.
But no matter how much sleep she gets, the actress, who just developed a beauty line with Circa, said that her boyfriend, Ryan Gosling, won't catch her wearing comfy clothes around the house.
"No, no, no, no! You can't do sweatpants. No," she said. "Ladies, number one cause of divorce in America? Sweatpants. No. Can't do that."
Next up for the movie star is gracing the April cover of “Women’s Health” and discussing having no real secret to getting her body back post-baby, crediting others for making her look so good.
