During the sit-down interview, Mendes also opened up about being a mother to the two daughters – Esmeralda, seven, and Amada, six – that she shares with longtime partner Ryan Gosling, 41.

When discussing why she waited until she was in her 40’s to have kids, the Miami, Florida native lit up with obvious joy.

‘Something really crazy happened,’ she told Kotb, ‘I met Ryan Gosling, I fell in love with Ryan Gosling, and then I was like “Oh right. I want your babies.”‘

After sharing a laugh with Hobt, she continued: ‘But really consciously I did want to wait until I was a bit older. I just didn’t feel – really it wasn’t until I met Ryan and fell in love. But also as a woman, I just wasn’t ready. It’s such a personal choice for a woman, obviously. Then you run the risk of… you’re always running a risk. When I was pregnant there was always something to worry about. But thankfully I had really healthy pregnancies and I was happy I waited.’

She capped off this particular part of the conversation by confessing she knew motherhood was right for her when she met Gosling.

‘Yea, that’s when it really made sense,’ she said. ‘I was so I love and I’m like “Oh, I want to create life with you.” And it’s funny because I feel like parenting is the most creative thing that I have ever done.’

Mendes has actually stepped away from her acting career to raise their two children.

‘I’m an actress and I designed cloths, and I’ve done a number of different things but this is the most creative thing is to create life,’ she revealed about being a mom. 

The couple started dating in 2011, shortly before they starred together in the film, The Place Beyond the Pines.
