Barbie star Ryan Gosling and partner Eva Mendes are as ‘in love as ever’ more than a decade into their relationship as they raise two children together
Ryan Gosling is everywhere right now thanks to his role as Ken in the upcoming Barbie movie.
But the La La Land actor is a family man at heart with his longtime partner Eva Mendes and their two daughters Esmeralda, eight, and Amada, six.
The two stars are supportive of each other’s careers – even if they don’t talk about their partner publicly.
‘She’s his No. 1 fan and loves when he gets to do big movies, like Barbie,’ a source told Us Weekly. ‘Ryan also supports Eva in all her endeavors and just adores her.’
The source also said that Ryan and Eva are ‘as in love today as the first year they were together.’
Ryan and Eva started dating in 2011 after sparking romance while shooting The Place Beyond the Pines.
Last month, they celebrated 10 years together and the Hitch actress marked the occasion with throwback photos of the two of them from the film that brought them together.
‘Luke & Romina. Mi socia @scondito just sent me this telling me it’s been 10 years since this film came out. Feels like lifetimes ago,’ she captioned the post.
In another post commemorating their anniversary, she wrote: ‘Magic is Real. We did not meet on set. The magic started way before but here’s a little magic captured on camera. Gracias to the incredible director Derek Cianfrance.’
Despite their long relationship, the two stars rarely walk the red carpet together – even though fans have been clamoring for them to do so.
And the two stars have opted to keep their relationship and their daughters out of the limelight.
‘I don’t talk about Ryan and all the wonderful things he does as a father because I keep that part private,’ the Training Day star wrote on social media in April 2020.
‘I feel it’s best that I continue to disclose what I’m comfortable with but not involve him or my kids too much. It’s not about being cagey or weird, it’s just about staying private in a public space. Does that make sense? Hope so. Because this is my honest answer.’
And The Notebook star offered fans a rare glimpse inside of his family life and what it was like during the COVID-19 lockdowns.
‘Our kids are young, so it was a tough time for them to be separated from other kids and not being able to see family and whatnot,’ the Gray Man actor said in an interview with GQ.
‘So, we did our best to entertain them. I think Eva and I did more acting in quarantine than we have in our whole careers,’ he said, adding that they did really dramatic interpretation of bedtime stories.
Ryan and Eva have never confirmed that they are married but she has a tattoo on her wrist that says ‘de Gosling’ and referred to him as her husband during an interview on Today Australia.
