Eva Mendes is just the latest celebrity who decided to talk about motherhood. The beautiful actress recently made an appearance on Ellen DeGeneres Show and claimed that she wanted to keep privacy on this important moment in her life.
Ellen actually joked and called Eva a liar. The beautiful singer was invited in The Ellen DeGeneres show back in February. At that time, Eva was pregnant, but she decided to deny the rumors when being asked by the host of the show if she will welcome a child. Well, now Ellen told Eva “Congratulations, liar!” Eva was able to defend herself and said that every new mom knows very well that it brings bad luck to talk about it during the first trimester of the pregnancy.
It was all “because I was so early on and all mom’s will understand, you’re not supposed to tell anybody during your first, well certainly not the world, in your first trimester. And my mother didn’t even know yet. So that would have been an awkward phone call. ‘Hey mom did you catch Ellen today?’ Um, oops!” the star explained.
Eva also revealed that her daughter had not been very quiet at night, so the star was not able to get that much sleep. “You know we’re getting the hang of it, the sleeping thing, but yeah I’m exhausted and it’s the best…Really, I’m so incredibly tired. I thought I was tired before at times, but no. Nothing like this, but I wouldn’t have it any other way,” she said.
Eva also talked about privacy and the fact that she and Ryan decided to keep the happy pregnancy news a secret. “I think just early on, we decided it’s going to be so hard for her to have privacy,” Eva Mendes said. “We thought this is the first opportunity we can give her to protect her and so that I had a nice calm pregnancy, which I did.”
Ellen also asked Eva how she looks so great, although she gave birth only 10 weeks ago. The actress revealed that it is all thanks to breastfeeding. “You know, breast-feeding. I’ve always heard it. It really does help to shrink your uterus back to normal size. It does! I know it’s a really weird thing to say, but it does.”
