So just when we thought we couldn’t love Hollywood heartthrob Ryan Gosling any more, the 35-year-old actor has given us even more reason to.
Yep, in a recent interview with Hello! Canada, Mr Gosling has set our hearts aflutter – for something other than his flawless looks.
We’ll start with his wife, Eva Mendes. The two have been dating since meeting on set of drama The Place Beyond The Pines in 2011, and started their brood last year with now 1-year-old Esmerelda.
“I know I’m with the person that I’m supposed to be with,” he said.
But it was the next quote that really made us go weak at the knees…
When asked what he looks for in a woman, Ry Ry said, “That she’s Eva Mendes. There’s nothing else I’m looking for.” Awww!
As for baby Esmerelda, Ryan is equally enamored.
“This will be our first Christmas where Esmerelda is sort of taking it all in, so that’s exciting,” he said.
And apparently he’s taken to fatherhood like a duck in water, telling Hello! that it’s “not rocket science”.
And much to our dismay, apparently that involves doing his very best to keep baby Esmerelda out of the spotlight.
In fact, other than a recent Trick or Treat Halloween outing, we’ve barely seen anything of baby Esmerelda.
That’s not to say he’s not totally obsessed, though. According to PEOPLE, a source said that Gosling is “madly in love” with little Esmerelda, while Mendes is loving her life as a new mum.
“She’s never been happier,” the source said of 41-year-old Eva. “She and Ryan are just in awe of this beautiful person they created. It’s a real special time for them.”
Room for one more, guys?
