Read on for facts about the Hollywood couple and Mendes’ pregnancy.
1. Eva Denied the Rumors at First

The actress refused to go through the scanners at the airport, which started the baby buzz.
Mendes, 40, said, in the video above, “It all started because I didn’t want to go through the scanners at the airport. You know those X-ray scanners, which are really creepy? They basically see you naked, right? And not only that, but there’s a radiation aspect to it, so I always opt out.”

4. Ryan May Be Acting Much Less Now

During his girlfriend’s pregnancy, he really stepped up to plate as a doting dad-to-be.
An insider told Us, “Ryan goes out and gets the groceries. [Eva’s] been wanting pasta, and he’s cooking her meals.” Adds the source: “Ryan has already stepped into the role of caring father-to-be.”
