Here’s a Look Into Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes Children & Family Life
Canadian actor Ryan Gosling and his Spanish actress wife, Eva Mendes, are known for keeping details about their intimate romance well, intimate. While the two entertainers don’t share a lot of what’s going on in their private life with the general public. But then, they give us glimpses of their beautiful life together. This includes Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes children – Esmeralda Amada and Amada Lee.
Ryan Gosling & Eva Mendes: A Movie Set Love
While there’s a lot of mystery surrounding this gorgeous couple, it is reported that Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes knew each other in passing before falling in love on the set of their movie The Place Beyond the Pines in 2011 when sparks started to fly.Embed from Getty Images
From Gosling recommending Eva for a role, to movie co-stars and later becoming lovers, the romance of this dynamic duo has been one of the most intriguing.
According to The Place Beyond the Pines director, Derek Cianfrance, Ryan Gosling had been an advocate for his lady love even before they became a couple.
“I had asked Ryan about who he thought should be Romina… we thought about it a lot. He had known Eva a little bit. He said, ‘You should meet with Eva because she’s great; I think she’s got a lot to offer that maybe people haven’t seen, which would be great.’ So I said ‘okay,” Cianfrance confirms.
Despite a great need for privacy, Eva also once confirmed to Oprah Daily that she and Ryan had been acquainted ahead of filming, saying, “we had known each other for a while already, so to work together was really exciting.”
Ryan & Eva: Relationship
Shortly after meeting on set, Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes were soon rumored to be dating. Although the alleged couple at the time never post pictures together, several paparazzi captured the co-stars being chummy.
It was apparent that the on-screen chemistry translated to their personal lives when, shortly after filming wrapped, the two were spotted getting cozy at Disneyland and sharing a romantic kiss in Paris.
No kids in the cards
Before Ryan Gosling and Eva had their two daughters, Eva had been quite vocal about not wanting a child or children in her life prior to meeting Gosling and having her two daughters, which is probably one of the reasons the Training Day actress didn’t have any until she turned 40.Embed from Getty Images
In one of her moments speaking to Women’s Health, Mendes had made it clear that a child was “the furthest thing from my mind.”
“I never wanted babies before, until I fell in love with Ryan, and it kind of worked out to where I was 40 and having my first baby. I think I was 42 for the second one, so it worked out in that way that I had a career and then I changed my focus to my family” Eva once said in an interview.
When asked what changed, Eva Mendes made it clear that “Ryan Gosling happened. 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.”
First came love, then came children…
Barely three years after getting together and despite Eva Mendes reservations about children, it wasn’t long after the couple’s relationship skyrocketed that the two welcomed their first child, Esmeralda Amada Gosling, together.
Eva’s earlier reservations about having kids might explain why when speaking to Violet Grey of her journey as a first-time mom with her daughter, Esmeralda Amada Gosling, Mendes admitted “I’m completely exhausted. I thought my wild nights were over but these are some of the wildest nights I’ve ever had.”
It is apparent that the Cuban-born beauty’s views have since changed. In 2014, in spite of being extremely tight-lipped about their relationship, US Weekly exclusively confirmed that Gosling and Eva Mendes had welcomed their first daughter, Esmeralda Amada—which means beloved in Spanish—Gosling, and welcomed their other daughter Amada Lee Gosling in 2016, officially becoming a family of four.

About their eldest child: Esmeralda Amada Gosling
At the arrival of their eldest child, Esmeralda Amada, it was important that Eva Mendes put her family life and baby first. The required attention to nurture and raise her two daughters, Esmeralda Amada Gosling, was what prompted the brunette beauty to make the decision of putting her acting career on hold.
