Actors Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling reportedly have welcomed their first child together, a girl.

Both Us Weekly and People magazine reported the birth, citing multiple sources, though neither gave a name. The child was born on Friday, Sept. 12, according to Us Weekly. The stars' respective representatives did not respond to Newsday requests for comments.

Gosling, 33, and Mendes, 40, have been a couple for three years. They played parents in the 2013 crime drama "The Place Beyond the Pines," shot in 2011.

Even the pregnancy has been shrouded in secrecy. Us reported Mendes' pregnancy in July, but neither parent would confirm. The actress had previously denied the baby rumors, calling them "ridiculous" on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" in February. "It all started because I didn't want to go through the scanners at the airport," she said. "You know those X-ray scanners, which are really creepy. They basically see you naked, right? And not only that, but there's a radiation aspect to it, so I always opt out."

Mendes starred this year in "Lost River," which Gosling wrote and produced and on which he made his directorial debut. It was screened at the Cannes Film Festival in May, where it met a highly negative reception and poor reviews.

Mendes had a more than decadelong relationship with George Augusto, who wrote and directed a short, starring her, in the mid-2000s for the omnibus film "Guilty Hearts," released direct-to-DVD two to three years ago. He reportedly remains her personal assistant. Gosling was in a relationship with the 16-years-older Sandra Bullock in the early 2000s, and later reportedly dated Rachel McAdams, his co-star in 2004's "The Notebook."
