Ryan Gosling And Eva Mendes’s Daughter Is Five Days Old. So It’s A Bit Creepy She’s Already Being Called ‘Sexy’

Social media's response to the couple's happy news is a bit off key...

Following the announcement of the birth of Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes’ first child together – a daughter whose name is still under wraps – parts of social media have got their pervy knickers in a bit of a twist.

Apparently, because Eva and Ryan are celebrities and they’re really hot, that gives people the right to lay claim to their daughter and cast aspersions on just how fit she’s going to be.

Oh, and of course, there’s all that jealousy directed at Eva because apparently she’s totally undeserving of Ryan’s affections and, apparently, the time to publicly remind her about this is just after she’s had his baby:

It’s all a bit mean and runs on the assumption that Ryan Gosling would ever give any of these women so much as a second glance. Just as it’s fucked up that people feel a sort of ownership over famous women’s pregnant bodies (and non-famous women’s, we figure) as they gestate, it’s kind of fucked up that people think they have some sort of claim to Ryan Gosling because they fancy him in a few films.

Oh, and it almost goes without saying that it’s not quite on to be talking about how hot a baby is just days after it’s been born. Even if she does have two beautiful parents, that doesn’t mean she’s going to be hot. And – even if she will be – what about her being a talented actress in her own right/smart/funny... We could go on but we’re in danger of sounding over-pious here.

So instead we’ll just leave you with this – surely, the best response to the baby news?

In a world of instantaneous celebrity news, sometimes it’s good to have a slow burner to watch out for.
