Eva Mendes

Eva Mendes is looking as stunning as ever as she graces the cover of Women’s Health this month. 

The 45-year-old opened up about her gorgeous daughters, who she has with her partner Ryan Gosling. 

She revealed that before Ryan, she didn't see herself with a family. 

She said, ''It was the furthest thing from my mind. 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 pair are parents to two little girls – five-year-old Esmeralda and two-year-old Amada.

She said, ''We’re just starting to get out of survival mode. I’m starting to feel like a person again.”

Thankfully, she and Ryan have their family to help them with raising the girls.

She said, ''Family. We have an amazing support group: Ryan’s mom, my mom, Ryan’s and my sisters. It’s a village that helped us. My heart goes out to women who do this alone.”

The couple has been together for eight years after they met on the set of The Place Beyond the Pines.

Eva wants to make sure that her daughters have a strong role model in her.

She said, ''What I try to emphasise is that I don't let them see me put attention to how I dress. They've never seen me get ready for something; they've never seen me at work.''

She continued, ''Which is fine, for whoever wants to do it that way, but the way I keep it normal is by not letting them see me in these situations. I'm just Mom. And I'm more than happy to just be Mom.''

It sounds like she has it figured out just fine. 


Just days after getting over the remarks John Krasinkski made about his wife Emily Blunt during a recent interview, Ryan Gosling is after flooring us with comments he made about his partner Eva Mendes.

In an interview with GQ, the Notebook actor revealed that the reality of family life has, in fact, exceeded his greatest expectations.

Ryan, who share two daughters with the Hitch actress, said: "Your whole life, you hear what it's like to have kids, and all the clichés are true."

"I felt I knew that everything would be different, but until you experience that, there's no way to really know what people mean," he continued.

Paying tribute to Eva as a mother, he added: "Eva's the dream mother, and they're the dream babies. It's like a dream that I'm having right now. I'm dreaming it all."

Having welcomed his first child in 2014, the actor says her arrival signalled a profound change on his approach to life, explaining: "When you meet your kids you realise that they deserve great parents."

"And then you have your marching orders and you have to try and become the person that they deserve. There was nothing kind of premeditated about it, you know."

Reflecting on the impact Eva, Esmerelda and Amada have had on him, he added: "It just suddenly was: My life had changed. And thank God it did."

Excuse us while we weep into our sleeves.



Back in April fans of Hollywood power couple Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling celebrated as the pair welcomed their second baby girl into the world.  But while the occasion was obviously a happy one, it was also touched with sadness as baby Amada was born the same week Eva buried her brother.

In a new interview with Latina magazine, the Training Day actress has described what it was like to lose her older brother Juan Carlos Mendez to throat cancer so shortly before the arrival of her daughter and explained how the experience brought her family closer together.

Eva told the mag: “Losing my brother brought our family closer, and we were already close to begin with…So to just see everybody be there for one another and show up, I feel so lucky to have them.  And then they were there for me when Amada was born.”

“We had a funeral service for him and that same week I had the baby.  So it was really, really intense and obviously beyond heartbreaking, but also kind of beautiful.”

During the interview, the actress also discussed how her brother’s passing influenced the choice of name she and Nice Guys star Ryan gave their newborn.

She said: “In true Latin fashion, we reuse names all the time.”

“My grandmother's name is Amada, and Esmeralda Amada is the name of our oldest.  We had a few names picked out for our new baby, and when she was born, we didn't feel like those names were her.”

“So we went with Amada because it was something we kept going back to.  And it was an emotional time with the passing of my brother.”

“We thought how beautiful to go with what made us emotional and with what felt like her.  When we looked at her, we thought, ‘Aww, Amadita.’”



Viva @Latina Magazine! So excited about this! Gracias y Besotes!  Latina.com/EvaMendes #EvaOnLatina

We think it's heartwarming to hear how even through her grief Eva was able to find a positive way to remember her late brother in the baby naming process.

Well, we think we know what the beautiful couples of Hollywood have been up to lately.

Just after it came to light that Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds are expecting, Us Weekly reports that Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling are expecting baby no.2, too!

According to an insider, the mom of 17-month-old Esmeralda, was spotted hiding her burgeoning bump during a photo shoot in LA in late February.

Congrats guys, we can't wait to see you with another adorable baby!



We all have our Christmas traditions. 

Whether it's as harmless as carving up the turkey or as embarrassing as whipping out your choreography to 'All I want for Christmas', it is all part of the festive fun. 

Well except for Ryan Gosling who doesn't find his wife's festive traditions particularly fun. 

Ryan has revealed in an interview with Hello! Magazine that Eva Mendes has rather questionable taste in Christmas music. 

"She's obsessed with the Hanson Christmas album! No disrespect to Hanson, they're very talented kids, but I think I've heard that record enough. I'm sure it will be on a loop this Christmas as well."

So Eva loves a bit of the 'mmm-boppers' then does she? Very interesting…

Well no matter how woeful Ryan finds the Christmas music, he is still really excited for this Christmas because of the other little lady in his life, the couple's daughter, Esmerelda.

"This will be our first Christmas where [she is] sort of taking it all in, so that's exciting."


As for Ryan, he has never been happier to be a family man. 

"There's nothing else I'm looking for. I know that I'm with the person I'm supposed to be with."

Eva Mendes, we are eternally jealous of you. 


Do we hear the sound of wedding bells?

Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes have been together since September 2011.

The famous couple have a baby daughter, Esmerelda – but are they also secretly engaged?

The 41-year-old actress has been spotted wearing a gorgeous emerald bauble ring for some time now, leading to speculation that her longtime partner may have popped the question. 

The American actress appears to be sporting the ring in an Instagram picture over 12 week ago and since then it has constantly been on the beauty's finger – including red carpet events and most recently at an Estée Lauder beauty event. 

But a source told E! News that the ring was just a present from Ryan to mark the birth of their daughter.

Esmeralda… emerald… get it?

We love this Hollywood couple so we only hope a real wedding ring will be on the cards very soon!




Eva Mendes has made the decision not to celebrate Mother's day this year, despite the fact that she welcomed her first child, Esmeralda, with Ryan Gosling in September.

Eva spoke to Access Hollywood's Billy Bush and Kit Hoover: "There is no plan. I kind of feel like I haven't quite earned my stripes yet in a way. My daughter is 7 months." 

She has taken the decision to focus on her own mother for the day, rather than herself.

"This Mother's Day is definitely all about my mom. She's had a really hard year. My brother's sick, so it's all about my mom, honoring her," she said.

She then added: "We're all going to go over to her house and bombard her with love."

Mendes also went on to say how she loves it when mothers dress like their daughters: "It's so sweet to me. My mother was always one of those mothers that dressed me like my sisters. Like exactly alike — and there's a huge age gap!" she said. "My poor sisters were 8 and 9 years older than me and dressing like a 5-year-old."

We wonder if she will do the same with Esmeralda if her and Ryan decide to have another baby. 

Esmeralda is the couples first child. They have been together since 2011. 



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!




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.


Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling are one of Hollywood's golden couples, but now it seems they could be on the verge of a split.

40-year-old Eva has been at home with the couple's new daughter Esmeralda in Los Angeles, while Ryan has been spending long periods in Georgia, filming his new movie The Nice Guys, which has understandably put a strain on their relationship as they adjust to life as parents.

But that's not the only source of the problem, a source told OK! magazine. "It's more than just run-of-the-mill stress that comes with having a newborn. They're barely talking… Eva has pushed him away."

The couple's rocky patch apparently got worse when Eva chose not to travel to Georgia to stay there for the duration of Ryan's filming schedule, meaning he is flying regularly between two states to see his family. "So instead of coming home every night to them, he's jetting back and forth just so he can see his daughter," said the source.

The notoriously private couple, who started dating in September 2011 after filming A Place Beyond The Pines, haven't been pictured in public together for over a year.

Eva is reportedly reluctant to go outside in L.A. with baby Esmeralda, most likely for fear of paparazzi. "The last time Ryan was in LA, he told her that she and Esmeralda needed to get outside for some fresh air, but she just wouldn't listen," said the insider. 

On a recent interview with Ellen DeGeneres, Eva spoke about her desire to give her little one a normal upbringing, saying she refused to take on a nanny or other hired help. "Esmeralda has two amazing grandmothers and incredible aunties who come over and help me," she said.

Hopefully this is just a difficult patch for the couple – we love them together!



It’s been two months since Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling welcomed their little girl into the world, and now Eva has finally opened up about becoming a new mum.

The actress was speaking on The Violet Files when she described why they chose the beautiful name Esmerelda Amada for their little girl, saying: “Ryan and I both love the Esmeralda character from the Victor Hugo novel, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, and we just think it’s a beautiful name. Amada was my grandmother’s name. It means ‘beloved’ in Spanish.”

Eva also explained why she and Ryan chose to keep her pregnancy a secret for such a long time, saying: “Whether we like it or not, privacy is going to be very difficult for Esmeralda. I think it’s unfair but that’s our reality. Ryan and I decided early on to give her as much privacy as we could. And my pregnancy was the first opportunity to do that.”

The actress also joked that while motherhood may be a tiring job, it’s nothing compared to being a baby: “Everything is a struggle for her. For instance, I haven’t thrown up since the ‘90s and she’s thrown up twice since we started this interview. Motherhood is cake compared to what it’s like to be a baby.”

Refreshingly, she also described how she loves to find solace in other mums through the internet: “[I] read the comment section from other mothers because I find so much solace in that. Just knowing that I’m not alone out there and that other mums have gone though the same thing can at least get me through the night.”

That’s nice and all Eva, but you also have RYAN GOSLING to get you through the night – we have hot water bottles. 



As celebrity stalker stories go, this one has to be right up there with the freakiest.

Ryan Gosling has apparently taken out a restraining order against a woman who he claims has been stalking him for three months and claiming that she is his “twin flame”.

According to TMZ, legal documents state that Grace Marie Del Villar has been harassing the actor by sending disturbing emails and packages to him.

Del Villar’s harassment hasn’t stopped with Ryan though, oh no. She has also turned her attention towards Ryan’s sister, and has been bombarding her with frenzied messages regarding the actor. In one, Del Villar is reported to have left a message saying: “I am kicking your brother’s head.”

For someone who claims to be his ‘twin flame’, why would she want to kick his head?!

Apparently Ryan reached the end of his tether with his stalker last month, when Del Villar allegedly showed up at Gosling’s family residence claiming to be his twin sister. When she was refused entry through the security gate, she left a doll catalogue at the entrance.

Can you say freaky?

According to the court documents, Del Villar has been ordered to stay 100 yards away from Ryan, partner Eva Mendes and their daughter Esmeralda.
