Esmeralda has two amazing grandmothers and incredible aunties who come over and really help me.

On staying out of the spotlight during most of her pregnancy, Eva says she did it for her daughter. Whether we like it or not, privacy is going to be very difficult for Esmeralda. I think its unfair but thats our reality. So Ryan and I decided early on to give her as much privacy as we could. And my pregnancy was the first opportunity to give her that. Its such an intimate time for the mother, too. I know that it seems all very innocuous when youre flipping through a tabloid at the doctors office or see a photo of a pregnant lady online, but I find the medias bump watch obsession to be both intrusive and stressful. So I made a decision to eject myself from it completely. I was like, Annnnd Im out. Super fair decision.

It really does help to shrink your uterus back to normal size. It does! I know it's a really weird thing to say, but it does. It's the best. So breastfeeding is really helping and then obviously you want to be healthy for the baby because shes eating kind of what I'm eating, so you want to make good choices."

Eva graces the April 2015 cover of Womens Health some six months after giving birth. Im actually enjoying the sleepless nights because its bonding with my little girl.

They would only do it for 20 minutes at a time or something, but in the movie, because we had to get a lot of shots, I was in it for like six to eight hours."

After being banged around for hours at a time, Ryan started to say some pretty weird sh*t.

Why won't Ryan Gosling marry Eva Mendes?

Mendes, who turned 42 in 2016, has seven years on Gosling, which may also be hindering the couple's decision to get married. If anything, her maternal clock could be ticking louder than those wedding bells, which would make total sense, considering she's now pregnant with her second child.

On the flip side, the couple's age difference could be forcing Mendes to take things a little more slowly. Even though it feels like an eternity by Hollywood standards, the couple has only been together four years. Considering Gosling just hit his mid-30s, Mendes could simply be waiting for him to mature a little more before she commits 100 percent.

Eva Mendes Gushes About Ryan Gosling On Instagram

Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes are a rare breed of A-List couple.

Not only have they stayed together for almost a decade throughout their thirties - a rare feat in Hollywood - they have also managed to maintain absolute privacy and control over the public knowledge surrounding their relationship.

The only time they have ever been photographed on a red carpet together was when they both starred in the 2012 hit film The Place Beyond The Pines. Not even when Gosling was nominated for an Oscar and won a Golden Globe for his role in La La Land in 2017 did the couple choose to make a public appearance together.

However, there has been the odd anecdote from both Mendes and Gosling about their relationship, two daughters and new adopted dog over the years, which are cute enough to make even the iciest of hearts thaw.

Most recently, Mendes discussed why she and Gosling keep their relationship so private.

Starting with the most recent sweet comment, here's a look back at the times the actors have lovingly spoken about their relationship and each other...

27 April 2020: Eva Mendes Gushes Over Ryan Gosling's Acting Credentials

Per previous examples below, Mendes has become accustom to interacting with fans on social media recently. Last week, the mother-of-two was unable to resist voicing her opinions on a fan account dedicated to Mendes and Gosling.

Under a post which encouraged fans to select their three favourites of Gosling's movies, Mendes aired her thoughts while praising her partner's acting credentials.

'What a tough question,' Mendes wrote. 'He was so incredibly heartbreaking in Bladerunner. Such an impossible role to play and he did it so beautifully! And his portrayal of Armstrong [in First Man] was so subtle and powerful and emotional. I got lost in his performance in that film.

'And then him as March in The Nice Guys is a classic comedy performance that is only seen every once in a blue moon.'

Evidently full of praise for her significant other, Mendes admitted she had to end the comment before she broke word count limits.

'I mean, I can keep going but I dont think this comment section has enough room!' she joked.

When a fan then responded to Mendes' rankings asking the Hitch star to tell Gosling fans are looking forward to seeing his post-lockdown work, the actor said she'd be sure to pass the message on.

The day before, Mendes admitted she was unsure of what to post at the moment, amid the Covid-19 pandemic, so shared a picture of one of her favourite pieces of art.

When a follower asked why she never posts pictures of her 'immediate family', Mendes took the time to respond first addressing the privacy reasons surrounding sharing photos of her daughters Esmerelda and Amada ('Since my children are still so little and don't understand what posting their image really means, I don't have their consent') before moving on to her partner Gosling.


'I have always had a clear boundary when it comes to my man and my kids... As for Ryan and I, it just works for us this way, to stay private.'

6 March 2020: Eva Mendes Explains What She'll Share About Ryan Gosling and her daughters

Over the past few months, Mendes has began engaging with her fans a lot more using social media (much to her fans' delight!).

Earlier this week, a fan commented on the actor and designer's picture of her modelling her own fashion range to compliment her and thank for her for interacting with her fans. She signed off her message with a little plea: 'Wouldn't mind an appearance by Ryan on this page.'

Mendes responded to the comment gracefully as ever, thanking her and explaining how much joy she gets from 'connecting to other women' on the platform. She also said how she tries to be honest so confirmed that the picture was a campaign shot so had been retouched.

The Hitch actor, who turned 46 on Thursday, then went on to explain what she will share on social media about her partner, Gosling, and the children they share together: Esmerelda and Amada.

'As far as Ryan, I'll only post flash backs of things that are already "out there" (like pics from movies we did or stuff like that),' she clarified.

'My man and kids are private. That's important to me so thanks for getting that.'

13th February 2020: Eva Mendes Reveals Little Known Talent Of Ryan Gosling's

After sharing a video of herself eating a macaroon on Instagram, Mendes responded to a fan who asked whether she and partner Gosling ever cook together.

The Hitch actor clarified that while she does not particularly pride herself on being a talented chef, her other half definitely is.

'Ryan is an amazing chef AND baker,' she wrote. 'For reals. Incredible. No joke. I'm not sure that what I do is cooking. It's more like steaming veggies and juicing and making rice.

'He really cooks. I survive.'

We're so intrigued. We wonder if his speciality dish is a lasange or maybe a casserole. And baking? Oh, what we'd give to eat a slice of cake crafted by the hands of Gosling.

'It's so fun and beautiful and maddening,' Mendes said of life at home. 'It's so hard, of course, but it's that that feeling of ending your day and putting them to bed and Ryan and I look at each other like, "We did it, we came out relatively unscathed".'

Mendes was then asked about the possibility of working with Gosling again on future film projects. Describing the Driveactor as a 'creative genius', she said she'd love to and joked that she 'would audition for him any day' before clarifying that, hopefully, she would get to skip the audition part.

'I love it', she said of working with her long-time partner.

Mendes, who recently launched her sixth clothing collection, also agreed with host Mario Lopez that no matter how busy the couple is with careers and children, scheduling in date nights - such as the one the couple were spotted on in Los Angeles recently - is important.

'It take a lot of prep,' she joked. 'You've got to have it all lined up. But luckily we have a lot of family support.'

In a cover interview with Women's Health, the designer told the magazine that having children had previously been 'the furthest thing from my mind' until she met her partner.

'I would like to try and thank one person properly and say that while I was singing and dancing and playing piano and having one of the best experiences I've ever had on a film, my lady was raising our daughter, pregnant with our second and trying to help her brother fight his battle with cancer.

'If she hadn't taken all that on so that I could have this experience, it would surely be someone else up here other than me today. So, sweetheart, thank you. To my daughters, Amada and Esmeralda, I love you.'

  • In a recent interview with Kelly Clarkson, Mendes revealed that she and Gosling are controlling parents.

Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes have been together for over eight years and are parents to two children, 4-year-old Esmeralda and 3-year-old Amada.

Although they have kept their daughters away from the limelight, the two do talk share sweet tidbits from their life at home from time to time. In fact, in a May interview with OprahMag.com, Mendes revealed that they don't even know that she and Gosling are celebrities.

But long before Mendes and Gosling were in full-on parenting mode, they were colleagues on the set of their 2011 movie, The Place Beyond the Pines. It was then that rumors about their relationship began swirlingbut since, they've managed to stay relatively mum on the details of their relationship. But in her recent interview with OprahMag.com, Mendes did provide some clarity on one thing: Previous reports that the two first met on the set of their 2013 film are actually not true.

"There's such special work in The Place Beyond the Pines," she told us. "We had known each other for a while already, so to work together was really exciting."

Aha. So while we still don't know exactly how and when they met, we do know that their friendship began long before they were colleagues. And though, since then, they've rarely spoken publicly about their personal family life, they have gushed about one another from time to time. In a recent interview with Women's Health, Mendes revealed she didn't want to have children until Gosling came into her life.

"Ryan Gosling happened," she told the magazine. "I mean, falling in love with him. Then it made sense for me to have...not kids, but his kids. It was very specific to him."

"It sounds so cliche, but I never knew that life could be this fun and this great," he said. "It's heaven. It's like walking through a field of flowers every day. I live with angels."

Could these two sounds anymore enamored? In honor of their love, let's take a look at how Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling's relationship beganand how their privacy has helped them stayed strong through the years.

We were like, 'What about Viviana?' But we just kept going back to Amada."

Just two weeks before Mendes gave birth, her older brother, Carlos Mendez, passed away after a long battle with cancer.

"A chauffeur, a cook, a personal assistant to an abusive boss. They're not grateful! Oh my God, do they get grateful? Does that happen at some point?" she asked Clarkson, who is also a mom.

Mendes also shared that she and Gosling have "the same" parenting styling when it comes to raising their daughters.

"We're very controlling. I think what the term iswe're always laughing at these termsI think we would be 'bulldozing parents,'" she said. "The stakes are really high so yeah, I'm a helicopter parent. And then I heard the bulldozing and Im like, 'Ooh, yeah, I'm probably a bulldozing parent too.'"
