Eva Mendes didn’t want children before dating Ryan Gosling
Actress Eva Mendes and her husband Ryan Gosling are one of the sweetest Hollywood romances we’ve ever seen. The way they have protected their marriage from the public is truly remarkable. Moreover, every time they talk about each other, one can sense just how much trust and love they have for each other. And so, in a recent interview, Mendes decided to go a little personal. She revealed that she never intended on having children before she met Ryan Gosling!
Eva Mendes never wanted children, until she met Ryan Gosling
In an interview with Nova 96.9’s Fitzy & Wippa radio show, Mendes revealed that she never wanted to have babies, until she “fell in love” with Ryan Gosling. Mendes was also asked if she’s thinking of coming back to Hollywood after a six-year break. To that, she replied:
I am now that [my kids are] getting a bit older, but I really feel like I never want to send the wrong message to young women out there. It’s not an either/or situation.
Eva Mendes continued to tell how falling in love with Gosling was the point where she decided she wanted to have children. Now, the couple has two daughters together, Esmeralda (6), and Amada (4). The 46-year-old further said:
I was lucky enough to work my bum off for 20 years, 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. 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.
Eva Mendes wants to return to Hollywood!
Despite the children, Eva Mendes said that she has been “thinking of definitely going back” to Hollywood. However, she wants something a bit more viewer-friendly, saying:
I feel like it’s time. The list is getting shorter and shorter of stuff that I’d do. I don’t want to do anything violent. I don’t want to do something risqué, I think the only thing that’s left is Disney!
Last months, Eva Mendes also hinted at a return to the silver screen, saying:
I feel like, as far as my ambition, it didn’t go away, it just shifted onto the children. I applaud and look up to those women who can do it all, but I’m not one of them. And, thankfully, I have a choice not to work and I realize how fortunate I am that it’s even a choice. I’ve been so happy to be able to incubate with my babies, but now they are four and six, I’m starting to feel like my ambition is coming back.
Ryan Gosling also shares the same love as his wife
Moreover, Ryan Gosling isn’t shy from expressing his love for Eva Mendes either. Gosling has also said many times how much he loves life with Mendes and their daughters. He told Oprah Magazine:
It sounds so cliché, but I never knew that life could be this fun and this great. It’s heaven. It’s like walking through a field of flowers every day. I live with angels.
Gosling again reiterated his love for Mendes in an interview with the Hello Magazine. They asked him ‘What do you look for in a woman?’, to which he said:
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.
It almost brings tears to anyone’s eyes.
