Playing Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling’s Baby Name Revealed and It’s Very Disney!

Admit it -- you didn't see this once coming!

Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes welcomed their first child together on Sept. 12, and Ryan has appeared to have taken his well-documented Disney obsession to the next level -- they've named their daughter Esmeralda Amada, ET can confirm.

It's no secret that the 33-year-old Notebook star is a big fan of Disneyland dates -- news broke that he was dating Eva when pictures surfaced of the two holding hands at the happiest place on Earth. Besides Eva, has also taken both Blake Lively and Kat Dennings to the Anaheim, Calif. theme park.

And let's not forget he was on The Mickey Mouse Club with Justin Timberlake, Christina Aguilera and Britney Spears from 1993 to 1995.

While one can only suspect the "Esmerelda" choice was primarily inspired by Disney's The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Eva also played a character named Esmeralda in an episode of the TV series V.I.P. in 1999. The origin of "Amada" may also stem from a previous role in the 40-year-old actress' career. She played Amada Juarez in 2007's We Own the Night, in which she starred opposite Joaquin Phoenix.

As for how the first-time parents are settling into their new life, Ryan is already a "doting, hands-on dad," according to Us Weekly. "Ryan is thrilled it's a little girl."

Adding that Ryan "hasn't left Eva's side," another source says Ryan's number one priority is now his family.

"He's accomplished everything work-wise that he had hoped and this is the next step in his life."
