Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling are among Hollywood's most private stars and prefer to keep their personal lives out of the spotlight. But the beautiful actress delighted her fans this week when she made reference to pregnancy in a candid Instagram caption.

Eva, 47, shared a photo showing her dressed in a striking geometric blue and white dress. "Lots of you asked who designed the dress I wore in yesterday's post…It's a female French designer, female founded business @chloestora. Women supporting women [love heart]," she captioned the image.

Asked why she doesn't share pictures of her family online, she previously stated: "I have always had a clear boundary when it comes to my man and my kids. I'll talk about them of course, with limits, but I won't post pictures of our daily life… As far as Ryan and I, it just works for us this way, to stay private."

And when a fan questioned why Eva is rarely spotted in public in an Instagram comment earlier this year, the beauty was quick to fire back.

After they told her to "tell Ryan to get you out more", she replied: "No thank you, I'm good. Rather be home with my man than anywhere else in the world."
