Ryan Gosling’s new ‘tattoo’ is the sweetest thing ever

He can rarely put a foot wrong in our eyes on a normal day, so you can imagine just how much we are fawning over Ryan Gosling after this latest story.

The star, who became a father back in September of last year, appears to have gone under the needle in honour of his daughter, Esmeralda.

Yes, the internet is going crazy after photographs of Ryan out and about in Los Angeles surfaced this weekend, with the actor sporting the letters ‘ESME’ on the knuckles of his left hand.

While it’s not known yet whether the inking is permanent or not, it is clearly a dedication to his five-month-old bundle of joy with partner Eva Mendes.

Unfortunately, we still haven’t been treated to a sneak peek of little Esmeralda herself. Come on, guys, you’re killing us here!

If it really is permanent, then Ryan follows in the footsteps of celebrity dads Kanye West and TOWIE star Dan Osborne, who both got tattoos in honour of their little ones this week.
