Have you heard? Ryan Gosling has said “hey girl” to a baby daughter. The actor – best-known for roles in Drive, The Notebook and Crazy, Stupid, Love – welcomed his first child with actress Eva Mendes. On the outside, we were all…
But on social media there was widespread mourning.

Brace yourselves. Ryan Gosling is now a dad. And the child isn't yours ?

Hey girl, we now live in a world where Ryan Gosling is a dad. It's okay to cry now.

It's so sad when you realize that you didn't give birth to Ryan Gosling's first child.

There was indignation.
Me:"Did you know that Ryan Gosling had a baby today?" @CarolineCarter8: "ya.. And it wasn't with Rachel McAdams..?(walks away)" HAHA SMH..

Ryan Gosling has a baby that isn't mine, so no, I won't be answering any calls today.

And – in rare cases – elation.
I share a birthday with Ryan Gosling's baby. We're basically family ?

A lucky few were still capable of humour…

While others speculated on Gosling’s first words to his gosling.
"If you're a baby covered in goop, I'm a baby covered in goop." –Ryan Gosling's first words to his new child, probably, or whatever

If the first words Ryan Gosling said to his newborn daughter weren't "Hey girl," then I give up.

#BabyGosling is just the luckiest…
So apparently Eva Mendes gave birth to Ryan Gosling’s baby on Friday. He is already building them both a house. By hand.
