Becoming a mother is a life-changing experience. It is especially truer when you never see it coming. For Eva Mendes, giving birth to her two little girls wasn’t something she predicted in her future. That is, until, she met her handsome husband Ryan Gosling.
“It was the furthest thing from my mind,” she told Women’s Health magazine about having kids. “[Then] Ryan Gosling happened. I mean, falling in love with him. Then it made sense from to have… not kids, but his kids. It was very specific to him.”
The perfect couple love spending as much time out of the radar as possible. Furthermore, they were first matched in 2011 when they met on the set of The Place Beyond the Pines. Moreover, they have been together ever since.
They gave birth to their first daughter, Esmeralda, in 2014. She was followed by Amada two years after. “We’re just starting to get out of survival mode. I’m starting to feel like a person again,” she confessed with the glossy. She also added she’s started working out thrice a week again with her trainer.
Moreover, Eva also confessed that exercise isn’t exactly her cup of tea. “I’m kicking and screaming the whole way through,” she said. However, her love and passion is clearly with her family. “We have an amazing support group: Ryan’s mom, my mom, Ryan’s and my sisters. It’s a village that helped us,” she gushed of the help she’s had raising her kids. “Furthermore, my heart goes out to women who do this alone.”
