Eva Mendes is the mother of two daughters, Esmeralda Amada, 9, and Amanda Lee, eight. The Cuban-born performer confessed that she had always believed that having children was not in her plans until she fell in love with Ryan Gosling, with whom she has been in a relationship for almost fourteen years and whom she met during the filming of the movie Crossroad in 2011. When they asked her what happened and why she changed her mind, Eva was clear: “What happened was Ryan Gosling. It began to make sense to me not to have children in general but to have their children. “It was something I specifically wanted to do with him.”

Now, her daughters are everything to her and Her decision to put acting aside to raise them was “the easiest decision I’ve ever made in my life.” “I was older and I knew that my daughters would be little one day, and anything I do or don’t do now will affect them for the rest of their lives.” “Everything matters when you have two little people looking at you all day. It’s scary, but it’s good because it makes me try to be a better person every day,” he says. For Eva, “they are just years of training” and it is a stage of her daughters that she did not want to miss.
