Ryan Gosling may be the best baby daddy in Hollywood. Despite his intense popularity, The Nice Guys star has kept his family of four (wife Eva Mendes and his two baby daughters) top secret. But with their daughters growing up, it looks like Ryan and Eva won’t be able to keep them behind the privacy curtain for much longer!
Right now, Ryan Gosling, Eva Mendes, and their baby daughters are in the Czech Republic. They all moved there so they could remain a family as The Nice Guys actors films his next big project, Blade Runner 2. While they have a bit of a paparazzi buffer in eastern Europe, they are slowly making the transition into the mainstream.
In a recent interview with Latina, Eva Mendes spilled the beans about her baby girls and family life. This is the most that the actress has revealed since she secretly gave birth to the couple’s first baby.
She gave the origins story for her daughter’s names, which come from her Cuban background.
“My grandmother’s name is Amada, and Esmeralda Amada is the name of our oldest,” she said. “We had a few names picked out for our new baby, and when she was born, we didn’t feel like those names were her. We came up with a few more, even that morning, and tried them out. We were like, “What about Viviana?” But we just kept going back to Amada. In true Latin fashion, we reuse names all the time.”
Usually, Eva Mendes stays away from promoting on her Instagram, but she was more active for this interview. It looks like she really wants her fans to read about her family life!
While they have not publicly stated that they are married, the rumors about Ryan and Eva being husband and wife are definitely afloat.
“[Eva] proposed to Ryan and he was completely shocked,” a source said according to Hollywood Life. “The buzz is that they invited fewer than 30 people and told everyone they were coming to a backyard party. Of course, anyone there was sworn to secrecy! She doesn’t want them to grow up thinking that marriage is something to be avoided.”
Even if they are now husband and wife, that must not have changed anything in their relationship. Ryan Gosling is still working on a lot of movies, but he prioritizes his wife and daughters. Eva Mendes seems to be focusing on her clothing line, which she started in partnership with New York & Company. Their baby girls are still young enough to live a private life.
They might miss their daddy for the next few months, though. He has a lot of movies coming up. The latest one is the highly anticipated La La Land, the film in which he reunites with his Crazy, Stupid Love co-star, Emma Stone. Not only did they ramp up their onscreen chemistry for this musical movie, but they worked hard enough to be contenders for next year’s Oscars.
“It was very evident very early,” Crazy, Stupid Love director said to Entertainment Weekly. “When Emma came in, she sat down, she was ready to go; Ryan walked in, immediately flubbed his first line, and she just laid into him, like, “Oh, you’re killing this buddy.” She was the only one not to be intimidated by him.”
On the other hand, the 41-year-old actress has not been in any movies for a long time. The last big feature that she worked on was The Place Beyond the Pines, where she met her baby daddy. Since 2011, she has given birth to two healthy babies and has enjoyed her life as a mother.
