Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes were spotted going for a drive in Los Angeles with their two daughters, 5-year-old Esmeralda and 4-year-old Amada on Tuesday afternoon. It’s a rare sight to see the famous couple out and about with their daughters.
The 39-year-old actor was driving the car wearing a grey t-shirt and matching baseball hat. The 46-year-old actress turned fashion designer looked effortlessly beautiful in a blue and white striped outfit that showed off her tan shoulders. The couple seemed to be chatting with the windows down and their adorable daughters sitting in the backseat.
Gosling and Mendes do their best with keeping their private life on the down-low, especially when it comes to their daughters. We rarely see photos of Esmeralda or Amada, let alone the entire family. When one Instagram follower commented on one of Mendes’s photos, questioning why she never photos of her young toddlers, she clapped-back saying, “I’ll only post flashbacks of things that are already ‘out there’ (like pics from movies we did or stuff like that). My man and kids are private. That’s important to me, so thanks for getting that … Have a beautiful day. Sending so much love!”
The “La La Land” actor and fashion designer have been dating since 2011 when they were filming the movie, “The Place Beyond the Pines” together. The only time the duo has been seen together out as a couple was on the red carpet while promoting the movie in 2012, according to Insider.
Although the two are very private and tight-lipped about their relationship and family, both will occasionally say a few gushing words about one another to the public. In an interview with Hello!, Gosling sweetly spoke about Mendes in the highest regard. “I know that I‘m with the person I’m supposed to be with,” he said, continuing to say that the only criteria he seeks in a woman is ”that she’s Eva Mendes. There’s nothing else I’m looking for.”
Gosling didn’t stop there. During his acceptance speech in 2017 for his film, “La La Land,” he dedicated his award to his leading lady. “I would like to try to thank one person properly and say while I was singing and dancing and playing piano and having one of the best experiences I‘ve ever had on a film, my lady was raising our daughter, pregnant with our second, and trying to help her brother fight his battle with cancer,” he said.
“If she hadn‘t have taken all that on so that I could have this experience, it would surely be someone else up here other than me today. So sweetheart, thank you. To my daughters Amada and Esmeralda, I love you,” he said ending his speech.
Working on flourishing their relationship in private has certainly worked for this power couple and we hope to see more spontaneous outings from them.
