No word on whether or not Ryan busted out some classic Mickey Mouse Club dance moves or told Eva about his hometown of Cornwall, Ontario.
(“It’s complicated,” you had to tell your fictional best friend Reese Witherspoon over imagined brunch.) While Mendes and Gosling stay mum on the subject of their relationship, which dates back to their days filming 2012’s magazine, Mendes explained the thought process behind naming their daughters Amada and Esmeralda Amada.“My grandmother’s name is Amada, and Esmeralda Amada is the name of our oldest,” the actress revealed.
“We had a few names picked out for our new baby, and when she was born, we didn’t feel like those names were her. When we looked at her, we thought, ‘Aww, Amadita.’”Even though both girls are under the age of two, Mendes said that she and Gosling are nurturing the sisters’ relationship.
We came up with a few more, even that morning, and tried them out. ’ But we just kept going back to Amada.”(At this point, we pause to imagine Ryan Gosling in a hospital waiting room repeating the name ‘Viviana Gosling’ aloud in his singular Canadian-by-way-of-De Niro accent.)Mendes continued, “In true Latin fashion, we reuse names all the time. I actually told [Ryan Gosling], ‘This is common in Latin culture, so it wouldn’t be crazy.’ . “My little one is still an infant, and right now it’s really about surviving those nights and trying to enjoy this time as much as possible with them, and start the bond between Esmeralda and Amada,” Mendes said.
The star has mostly been concentrating on her family and her fashion collaboration with New York & Company.
Though Ryan and Eva started out as your average celebrity couple in that they didn't exactly invite attention, nor did they eschew it, but there were walks to grab coffee, some date nights and a trip to Disneyland, as well as two red carpet appearances—to date, the only water in the photographic well.
We hate to break it to you, Eva, but that's exactly what people have already figured out about you.
Eva meanwhile has somewhat retired from the spotlight of late.
Her last film was Lost River in 2014 although she also put in an appearance in comedy series The Peter Austin Noto Show earlier this year.
So we will just have to imagine a television always tuned to ice hockey and maple leaves wallpapering the nursery.
Last month, Gosling, a proud feminist, shared his early observations gleaned from raising two daughters.“I think women are better than men,” Gosling said.
