Fans hoping to get a look at Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes' new baby girl had reason to get excited on Tuesday — until they had reason to be disappointed.
But ultimately, Ellen DeGeneres gave her audience a reason to laugh when she promised a sneak peak of the buzzed-about baby.
"They are two attractive people those two, right?" DeGeneres said, delivering one heck of an understatement about the proud parents. "Can you imagine what their baby looks like?"
That's when DeGeneres told her audience that they didn't need to imagine at all.
"I'm friends with them," she said. "And they sent me a photo."
But the excited oohs and ahs from the crowd were soon replaced with laughs as DeGeneres offered up a frame emitting a blindingly bright light instead.
"It's beautiful!" she gushed.
We'll have to take her word for it for now, as it seems fans of the famously private couple have to wait a little longer for their first look.
