Eva Mendes has joined social media sharing site Instagram.

And in a sweet nod to her daughter, the new mother shared a flashback photo of herself as a child with her already more than 92,000 fans.

In the image of the then three-year-old, little Eva is seen wearing a cute pink headscarf, matching skirt and blush T-shirt, and black boots as she poses outside in a park.

'Motherhood is cake compared to what it’s like to be a baby'

"I thought this picture might be a good way to start. 38 years later and still holding strong on the head wrap comeback,” she noted in the accompanying caption. Always the businesswoman, the avid designer also promoted her clothing collaboration with NY & Company, as well as an upcoming cosmetics line, CIRCA Beauty, which will be distributed through Walgreens.

The 41-year-old’s childhood snap came at rather a poignant time. Six months ago today, the actress welcomed her first child, daughter Esmeralda Amada, with long-time partner Ryan Gosling.

And while the notoriously private couple have yet to reveal a first photo of the infant, Eva’s flashback shot could well be an indication that the little girl has inherited her famous mother’s exotic Cuban looks.

Eva recently opened up about first-time motherhood as she graced the April cover of US Women’s Health. And though she admitted to suffering through many a sleepless night, the doting parent revealed she chooses to see only the positives.

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

"People always told me that [it was tough to be a mum]. But I’ve learned that it’s way harder to be a baby. Everything is a struggle for her. For instance, I haven’t thrown up since the 90s and she’s thrown up twice since we started this interview. Motherhood is cake compared to what it’s like to be a baby."
