Despite being two of the hottest actors in Hollywood, and despite meeting on-set when playing romantic interests in the most Hollywood rom-com of way, Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling have managed to keep their relationship and family out of the public eye for over a decade.
Now, it appears we’ve been privy to an update, courtesy of a slip of the tongue by Mendes — or should we say, Mrs. Gosling.
During an Australian TV appearance, Mendes might have confirmed she and Gosling, who have two daughters, Esmeralda Amada, 8, and Amada Lee, 6, have quietly tied the knot.
While appearing on Channel Nine’s Today to talk about her charity work in Australia on Friday, Mendes referred to Gosling as her “husband.”
“Everyone is so welcoming here and my husband Ryan is here, and we are having the best time,” Mendes told hosts Karl Stefanovic and Allison Langdon, as reported by the Daily Mail.
A week ago, Mendes had headlines asking the same question after she posted an image of herself with a wrist tattoo showing the words”de Gosling.” The use of “de” or “of” in Hispanic culture unifies the woman’s last name with her husband’s after marriage, meaning the tattoo’s English translation is “Mrs. Gosling.”
While speaking on the Kyle and Jackie O Show, Mendes clarified she actually got the tattoo “years ago,” adding she’s since gotten “a lot of funny questions” after posting the photo.
“But who says we weren’t already,” Mendes said of whether she and Gosling are married. “I like to keep it all mysterious. I’m a very mysterious woman.”
