Eva has two children with her partner Ryan Gosling, 41: daughters Esmeralda Amada, eight, and Amada Lee, six. 

The good looking duo began dating September 2011 after working together on the film The Place Beyond The Pines. 

Ryan and Eva were friends for a ‘long time’ prior to their romantic relationship.

At the time, a source told Us Weekly that there has ‘always been this strong chemistry between them.. this was just a matter of time!’

By the following September, the genetically blessed couple made their red carpet debut at the Toronto International Film Festival premiere of The Place Beyond The Pines.

They welcomed their second child, daughter Amada Lee, now five, in April 2016.

In December 2015, Ryan was asked what he seeks in a woman, to which he sweetly answered: ‘I know that I’m with the person I’m supposed to be with… that she’s Eva Mendes. There’s nothing else I’m looking for,’ during an interview with Hello magazine.

In April 2019, Eva revealed that she didn’t want kids before meeting Ryan, revealing to Women’s Health: ‘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.’

The Hitch star further elaborated in October 2020 when speaking to radio station Nova 96.9’s Fitzy & Wippa: ‘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.’

Adding: ‘I think I was 42 for the second one, so it worked out in that way that I had a career and then I change my focus to my family.’
