They’ve been together since meeting on the set of The Place Beyond the Pines in 2011. And Eva’s been “expecting” a ring ever since.
They’re expecting what appears to be an unplanned baby, following years of making up and breaking up, and they’re still on different pages regarding commitment. Eva wants marriage and Ryan does not.
“Eva and Ryan have one of those passionate, feisty relationships,” says a source. “They’ve broken up more than once over his refusal to commit. But to Eva, the baby is the first priority. She had to start trying, given her age.”
When they were not engaged two years in, September 2013, “She walked out on him and gave him an ultimatum, but it didn’t stick,” adds the source. “He had won her back by Christmas.” Right after that, she got pregnant.
Another issue, she earns more money doing bigger budget pictures; while he prefers indies. “Ryan is not that interested in money, and it has caused more than a few arguments.”
Also Eva’s still close to ex-boyfriend George Augusto, with whom she still has a business relationship promoting her accessories. “Ryan hates that he’s still in her life in an intimate way,” says the source.
The couple do communicate well enough to play around with baby names. Thomas (Ryan’s middle name) for a boy, or Donna (Ryan’s mom’s name) or Coral (a nod to Eva’s mom’s maiden name, Corrales) for a girl.
Although Eva’s superstitious and thinks bump placement means she knows its sex, “Her bump sticks out more in the front than sideways, and she thinks that means she’s carrying a boy,” says the source.
UPDATE 7/24/14: A new report claims Ryan and Eva painted their nursery with “blue accents”, possibly for a baby boy.
