Mendes nonetheless boasts and thrives on her successful decade-spanning career. Some of her best-known credits are Training Day, Hitch, Trust the Man, and The Other Guys.
Born Eva de la Caridad Méndez on March 5, 1974, in Miami, Florida, to her Cuban parents, Eva has been candid about how she got tired of fighting for good roles. And with the actress's personal life as a girlfriend and mother of two taking the front seat, Mendes says she doesn't really miss acting.
Inside Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling Relationship Timelines!
From Reel life to real-life couple. Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling are one of the most stable and discreet love birds. Since starting their romance on the set of their 2011 flick, The Place Beyond the Pines, in which they played rugged parents to an infant, Mendes, and Gosling have kept their relationship pretty away from the spotlight.
The attractive pair seldom talk about their long-going romance and the family that they've created. Fans assume that the duo got acquainted and started dating while filming their 2011 film. When in reality, the two had been friends for years.
The couple sparked romance rumors in late 2011 and kept fueling the talks until the media reckoned that they were indeed in love, and just didn't want to make it all about that. Eva and Gosling wrapped the year with one more film as they starred in Funny or Die's Drunk History Christmas.
Mendes' talented beau, Gosling, known for his Oscar-nominated roles in La La Land, Half Nelson, and more introduced Mendes to his Canadian family early on. While navigating a romantic relationship away from the screen, Eva and Ryan also asserted their professional relationship in public with much dignity.
The low-key couple teamed up again in the 2014 film Lost River. The Oscar-nominated actor dished how their third film together bettered their relationship in many ways. The co-stars-turned-lovers were blessed with their first kid in September 2014, followed by one more child in 2016.
The La La Land actor expressed his gratitude for Mendes while accepting his Golden Globe award in 2017. "While I was singing and dancing and playing piano, my lady was raising our daughter, pregnant with our second," Ryan said while referring to his role in the 2017 musical. He dedicated the award to Eva's late brother, Juan Mendes, who died in April 2016.
Ryan says he knew he wanted kids when he met Mendes!
Proving herself to be Ryan's biggest cheerleader, the Hitch actress recently called her beau the "greatest actor" she has ever worked with. Sharing snippets of their first film together, Mendes wrote, "Mi Hombre. Mi Vida, To say he's the greatest actor I've ever worked with is an understatement," the rare tribute comes ahead of Ryan's hotly-anticipated Barbie movie.
Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling's Children!
Since putting her acting career in the back seat, Mendes has been keeping her entire focus on raising her two adorable daughters, who she shares with Ryan. The duo welcomed their firstborn, Esmeralda, 8, in September 2014. Mendes immediately knew that she had to take a break to take that greater role in her life.
"She and Ryan are just in awe of this beautiful person they created. It's a really special time for them," an insider shared as the then-first-time parents kept mum. While Eva became a stay-at-home mom and bore another daughter shortly after, Gosling went on to star in the award-winning film, La La Land.
The twosome welcomed their second daughter, Amanda, 7, in April 2016. Being protective parents, and what Eva refers to as "bulldozing parents" the couple shows very less of their kids, but Mendes keeps it candid when it comes to sharing parenting tips.
Dishing on the importance of fostering creativity in our young ones, Mendes said, "I really feel like when we're bored — not stimulated by a phone, or an iPad, or computer or television — that's when ideas come in." Gosling recently went on record to say that he realized he wanted kids after falling for Eva.

Both Mendes and her Oscar-nominated boyfriend had a past before they fell for each other, albeit, Gosling, being the bigger star, boasts a longer history than Eva. The Hitch actress's only public relationship before Ryan was with Peruvian producer George Augusto, who she dated from 2002 to 2010.
Following her breakup with Augusto, Mendes was once linked with actor Jason Sudeikis. Ryan, on the other hand, has been a silent player throughout his career. His earliest flame is believed to be Sandra Bullock. The two worked on Murder By Numbers in 2002 and started a high-profile romance that ended in 2003.
