Eva Mendes Seemingly Confirms Ryan Gosling Marriage Speculation

There are a lot of famous couples in Hollywood who aren't afraid to share every intimate detail about their lives, and then there are others who are notoriously private. In the case of Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes, the two are one of the few Tinseltown pairs who do a great job at flying under the radar and keeping nearly all aspects of their romance under wraps, aside from a very rare mention in interviews and on social media.

According to People, the pair began dating in 2011, shortly after Gosling's romance with his "The Notebook" co-star Rachel McAdams ended. Unsurprisingly, they met on the set of "The Place Beyond the Pines," where they played an on-screen couple and things progressed from there, though we only know bits and pieces of it all. Per Popsugar, the pair welcomed their first child, Esmeralda, in 2014 and two years later, they welcomed their second daughter, Amada, per CBS News

Per Elle, Mendes mentioned Gosling in the comments section of a since-deleted Instagram post in 2020 where she called herself a "tired" mother, and fans attacked her for not giving Gosling a nod for being a good dad. Mendes explained that she wants to "connect" with women on her page and reiterated the importance of keeping things under wraps. "And why I don't talk about Ryan and all the wonderful things he does as a father is because I keep that part private," she told fans.

But, she may have just shared more than she hoped. 

Eva Mendes calls Ryan Gosling her husband and fans go wild

Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling have been notoriously private with their romance, and there are a lot of details that the public doesn't know about — including their marital status, apparently. Per the Daily Mail, Mendes made an appearance on the Australian version of "Today," where she spoke about her time spent filming in Australia. She also revealed some totally new information that has made headlines. "Everyone is so welcoming here, my husband Ryan is here, and we are having the best time," she casually told the outlet. Say what!?

This marks the first time that Mendes has referred to the actor as her husband, and it comes as no surprise that social media went bananas over the news. "Seeing that Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling may already be married," one person wrote with an attachment of Pam from "The Office," planting her face into her hands. "Eva Mendes may have just let it slip that she's married to Ryan Gosling ... but the long-standing mystery continues even now," another user tweeted.

This isn't the first time that Mendes has sparked marriage rumors. In September 2022, she shared an Instagram photo that captured her reaching for a flower as she showed off the tattoo on her wrist that read "de Gosling," which translates into "of Gosling" in Spanish and if you put two and two together.... maybe this is the second marriage hint she's dropped.
