“I speak to them in Spanish, and my mom speaks to Esmeralda in Spanish. Any time I have an opportunity to introduce her or them—I have to say ‘them’ now, though my newborn just sleeps all the time—to my culture, whether it’s through music, or through food, I do.”Sadly, Mendes did not reveal how the family is introducing Gosling’s Canadian culture to the girls. There was no official announcement when their daughter Esmeralda Amada was born in September 2014, although TMZ did obtain a copy of her birth certificate.

Once again, the news broke when TMZ discovered Amada Lee Gosling’s birth certificate.

The Preserve post was a “Celebration of Family,” and had pictures of several pregnant women—Lively being one of them.
It is fair to say that Hollywood’s leading lady has an eye for the winners.
