There are not too many celebrity couples that attract a lot of interest of the media and fans like Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling because of how super-private the couple has been all through the years. In fact, there are times that one can forget in all genuineness that the two have been together for close to a decade and they have children.
Eva Mendes’s relationship with Ryan Gosling has been said to have survived the years while still going stronger with time because of how much the two have tried to put themselves as the emphasis of the relationship instead of trying to show off for the media. While many other celebs flaunt themselves before the lenses of paparazzi, Mendes and Gosling are all private except when it has to do with their career.
Eva Mendes’s Relationship With Ryan Gosling
It was in 2011 that Ryan and Mendes first met while filming The Place Beyond the Pines.

By then, the pregnancy had already advanced and so in September, Eva gave birth to their daughter, Esmeralda Amada. In April 2016, Amada Lee Gosling, their second daughter was born. This time around, everything was kept in secret except for very close friends.
