Eva Mendes reveals the (very weird) way she keeps Ryan happy

Eva Mendes might still be adjusting to life as the mum of a six-month-old baby, but she's not going to let her style standards drop.

Next time you slip into a pair of trackie bottoms after a hard day at work, prepare to feel a bit sorry for poor Eva who has never known such comforts!

The actress, who welcomed a little girl named Esmeralda with husband Ryan Gosling last September, revealed she still wants to look on form when she's at home and says she'd never even consider wearing sweatpants around the house for fear for causing marriage trouble.

"Sweatpants, no, no, no, no," the 41-year-old said in a recent interview with Extra. "No, no, you can't do sweatpants. Ladies, number one cause of divorce in America is sweatpants. No, you can't do that."

The actress revealed that she's slowly getting used to motherhood – despite the lack of sleep. "I'm actually starting to sleep so I'm at a good place," she admitted.

"But you never know, right, something random can happen and she’s just suddenly not sleeping through the night and you’re like, wait, I thought we were sleeping through the night, what’s up?! Why does it always happen at three or four in the morning?!”

Eva said that becoming a new mama has given her a newfound appreciation for her own mother, too. "My mother has never gotten more like 'I love you so much Mommy' texts," Mendes spilled. "I mean, randomly, I'm just, 'I love you so much, Mom. You're the best mom.' If you look at my text history it's like all how much I love her."

Well Eva, if you gave sweatpants a try we reckon you'd love them JUST as much!
