Eva Mendes opens up about daughter Esmeralda


And although the 41-year-old actress keeps a low profile when it comes to her personal life, Mendes shared in an interview with Women’s Health a piece of experience as a new mom.

“I’m actually enjoying the sleepless nights because it’s bonding with my little girl,” she said.

When it comes to motherhood advice, The Place Beyond the Pines actress believes that she is not ready to give lessons yet.

“I don’t feel like I’ve really earned the right. I want to respect all the moms out there,” Mendes said. “They’re going to be like, ‘You know what? You’re a few months in. Just shut up.'”
