"Ryan goes out and gets the groceries," the insider tells Us of the Notebook hunk. "[Eva's] been wanting pasta, and he's cooking her meals." Adds the source: "Ryan has already stepped into the role of caring father-to-be."

As previously reported, Gosling, 33, and Mendes, 40, are set to welcome their first child together in just a few months' time. They clicked on the set of "The Place Beyond the Pines" back in 2011 -- the same year, incidentally, that the actor expressed his desire to start a family.

"I'd like to be making babies but I'm not, so I'm making movies," he told the U.K.-based paper The Times that September. "When someone comes along, I don't think I'll be able to do both and I'm fine with that. I'll make movies until I make babies."
