Eva Mendes Joins Instagram, Shares Adorable Throwback As a Little Girl!

Okay, we can only guess that Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling’s little girl Esmeralda is this cute! The Hitch star joined Instagram on Thursday, March 12, and shared an adorable throwback photo of herself as a little girl.

“Taking to Instagram to keep you posted on my clothing line for @nyandcompany and CIRCA Beauty (@realcircabeauty), a cosmetics line I have coming out at Walgreens. I thought this picture might be a good way to start. 38 years later and still holding strong on the head wrap comeback,” Gosling’s ladylove captioned the photo of her younger self decked out in pink.

The new mom has yet to share a photo of her mini-me, whom she welcomed into the world this past September. Mendes has, however, been vocal about surviving those sleepless nights. 

"I’m actually enjoying the sleepless nights," Mendes told Women's Health recently, "because it’s bonding with my little girl."

Don’t expect to find any new mom advice on her Instagram though. "I don’t feel like I’ve really earned the right [to give motherly advice]," she confessed to the mag. "I want to respect all the moms out there. They’re going to be like, ‘You know what? You’re a few months in. Just shut up.'"
