It’s true — Eva Mendes has a little one on the way!

The 40-year-old actress — who is dating Ryan Gosling — is pregnant, a source tells Access Hollywood.

According to OK! Magazine, which was first to report the baby news, Eva is seven months along, and excited about becoming a mom.

“She’s been ready for motherhood for a while now,” an insider told the mag. “And to be sharing this experience with Ryan is a dream come true for her!”

Eva and Ryan, 33, started dating in 2011 after co-starring as parents in “The Place Beyond the Pines.”

The couple has had an on-again, off-again relationship for the past year, but news that they are expecting has reportedly reenergized their love.

However, the couple reportedly has different feelings when it comes to marriage.

“Ryan doesn’t think they need to marry just because they are having a baby, but Eva believes it’s important to have their lives fully intertwined,” a source reportedly told the mag.

Back in February (during an appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show”), Eva shot down pregnancy rumors.

“It all started because I didn’t want to go through the scanners at the airport,” she said at the time, referring to a recent pre-flight security check at LAX. “You know those X-ray scanners, which are really creepy? They basically see you naked. And not only that, but there’s a radiation aspect to it. So I always opt out. I always ask for a personal pat-down. That was good enough reason [for people to think I’m pregnant].”
