Eva Mendes is mourning the loss of her older brother Carlos Mendez, who died at the age of 53 earlier this month.
The 42-year-old actress, who is pregnant with her second child with Ryan Gosling, celebrated the life of her brother with her family at a service on Tuesday (April 26) in Glendale, Calif.
Eva recently shared this photo of herself with Carlos, who was diagnosed with throat cancer nearly two years ago. Her younger brother Carlo shared a touching tribute to their brother on Instagram.
“I still can’t believe this has happened. I’m crying as I write this and I have no idea how to cope with him being gone but I want to thank you all who have reached out to me and believe me when I say your messages make me feel a little bit better. My life will never be the same without him. Thank you all,” Carlo wrote.
We send our thoughts and condolences to Eva‘s family during this difficult time.
