Since the arrival of baby Esmeralda Amada Gosling in September, new mom Eva Mendes has laid low and out of the public eye—until now!

The actress stepped out in Los Angeles on Saturday looking fresh-faced and perfectly coifed. Carrying a white Prada purse, Mendes wore a black V-neck cardigan and brown high-heeled ankle boots with cropped black slacks. According to People, the mom of one was shooting a commercial.

It's only been six weeks since Mendes, 40, gave birth to her and Ryan Gosling’s first child. Longtime boyfriend Gosling, 33, has been in Atlanta filming The Nice Guys with co-stars Matt Bomer and Russell Crowe. With Mendes officially returning to work, it's only a matter of time before she makes her first post-baby appearance on the red carpet. We can't wait!
