Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes are very ''excited'' about their pregnancy.

The couple - who met on the set of their 2012 movie 'The Place Beyond the Pines' - are reportedly expecting their first child together later this year and it's now been revealed that they're thrilled with the news.

A source told People magazine: ''They literally could not be more excited. She's feeling great.''

Eva, 40, is rumoured to be seven months pregnant and hadn't been seen out in public since March until she was photographed wearing a baggy dress and hiding her baby bump with a bag while making her way to her car in Los Angeles yesterday (10.07.14).

While Ryan, 33, has reportedly always wanted to be a father, Eva has admitted in the past that she had no plans to marry or have children, but since getting together with Ryan she's said to have completely changed her mind.

An insider told the magazine: ''With Ryan things are different ... she's very independent but she's content with her partner. She finally found the person she really wants to be with.''

Meanwhile, Ryan - who previously dated his 'The Notebook' co-star Rachel McAdams - is said to be so comfortable in his relationship with the 'Hitch' actress because of her laid back attitude.

A source revealed: ''She's very friendly and approachable. She's also very independent and Ryan is too. He loves that Eva isn't prissy. She's like a dude. She's outgoing and makes everyone feel great.''
