Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling have to be one of Hollywood’s most private couples. Despite being together for close to a decade and sharing two kids, the couple has fewer photos taken together than you can count on your hand.
Mendes and Gosling met back in 2011, when they starred in Derek Cianfrance’s film, The Place Beyond the Pines. The pair played an estranged couple who shared a son. Soon after, they began dating.

Since then, the pair have worked together on one other film, Lost River, where Gosling made his directorial debut. The 2014 film was the last thing Mendes starred in.
Over the past six years, Mendes has focused on their two young children, and the pair have continued to remain out of the public eye. Not only have there been zero photos taken to document either one of Mendes’ pregnancies but the photos of them as a family are extremely limited.
The couple had their first child, Esmeralda Amada Gosling, in 2014 and their second, Amada Lee Gosling, in 2016. And while some sources suggest that Mendes and Gosling got married in 2016, nothing has ever been confirmed.
When discussing her reasons from keeping both of their daughters out of the spotlight, Mendes explained that with fame comes attention, and as their children are young and not electively in the public eye, they want to keep their lives as private as possible.
“Whether we like it or not, privacy is going to be very difficult for Esmeralda. I think it's unfair but that's our reality. So Ryan and I decided early on to give her as much privacy as we could. And my pregnancy was the first opportunity to give her that," Mendes told Violet Grey in 2014.
