And the winner is … Esmeralda Amada Gosling.

The gossip website TMZ acquired the birth certificates for Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes’ daughter, who was born at Providence Saint John’s Health Center at 10:22 a.m. on Sept. 12.

This after the supremely private celebrity couple managed to keep the “Hitch” actress’ pregnancy out of the press.

Amada is the name of the character that Mendes played in “We Own the Night.”

Rumors of the pregnancy began in July with several media outlets reporting that the 40-year-old actress and her 33-year-old boyfriend were expecting their first baby. The couple never publicly confirmed that she was pregnant and no photo was leaked of her sporting a baby bump.

Earlier this year, Mendes laughed off pregnancy rumors on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” saying “it was ridiculous.”

“This all started because I didn’t want to go through the scanners at the airport – those X-Ray scanners that are really creepy,” Mendes told DeGeneres. “They basically see you naked and not to mention there is a radiation aspect to it. So I always pot out. I always ask for a personal pat down.”

The actress has kept a low profile over the last several months, only making a red carpet appearance at a Violet Grey dinner honoring the late Elizabeth Taylor in L.A. on Feb. 26.

Mendes went to great lengths to cover up her stomach from paparazzi, and in one photo covered her belly with an over-sized purse and pieces of clothing.

The baby is the first for Mendes and Gosling, who have been dating since 2011 after meeting on the set of “The Place Beyond the Pines.”
