“They literally could not be more excited,” a source tells PEOPLE. “She’s feeling great.”
“Ryan adores kids. He has such a way with them,” a source revealed last year. “He loves being around kids and can’t wait to be a dad.”
“She’s very friendly and approachable. She’s also very independent and Ryan is too,” the insider added. “He loves that Eva isn’t prissy. She’s like a dude. She’s outgoing and makes everyone feel great.”
OK! Magazine broke the story – yes, really – writing HOURS before anyone else, “Ryan grew up without a dad, so he always said when he had kids, he’d be there no matter what… This is it for him…. Ryan doesn’t think they need to marry just because they are having a baby, but Eva believes it’s important to have their lives fully intertwined.” OK! claim Eva is seven months pregnant.
“Throughout her pregnancy, the 40-year-old has been in hiding at her home… Ryan has been by Eva’s side night and day since she found out the happy news,” a Star source added. “He’s so amazingly considerate and thoughtful, always taking care of Eva. It’s like he’s already a doting daddy! No one would be surprised if they got married before the baby is even born.”
Once the news had made its way up the food chain – from the supermarket weekly that broke the story to the celeb magazines – Ellen DeGeneres “confirmed” and offered congratulations.
