7 Times Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes Made Us Go “Awww!”

Talk about #RelationshipGoals. Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes are two of the most beautiful—and private—stars in Hollywood, and they make a perfect pair. Here are seven moments that they proved their relationship is totally goal-worthy.


While details about the private lives of Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling are usually kept under lock and key, the couple still gives us an adorable peek into their lives from time to time. And we love when they do! These seven moments are our favorite from a relationship that started all the way back in 2011. 
1. When they cozied up for a long—and drunk—winter’s nap
Early in their relationship, Eva and Ryan performed together in Funny or Die’s Drunk History Christmas alongside Jim Carrey. The couple and third-wheeling Jim recreated the classic holiday poem “Twas the Night Before Christmas” with the help of a very funny and very drunk narrator, Allan McLeod. A couple who can laugh together, definitely stays together.

2. When Ellen gave Eva and Ryan matching jammies
If you haven’t seen Ryan and Ellen DeGeneres exercising together in onesies, do so right now. This can wait. But the couple cranked up the cuteness factor when Eva sat down with Ellen soon after. Ellen—who clearly knew the celebs were an item—presented Eva—who was trying to keep quiet, as usual—with a pair of connected onesies for the jammie-loving duo.


3. When Ryan took Eva as his date to his mom’s graduation
When his mom graduated college at Brock University in Ontario, Canada, Ryan made sure to bring his stunning S.O. along with him. The couple refused interviews and pictures with fans, making sure to keep the day all about Mama Gosling, but they still sent Twitter into a tizzy by simply showing up.
4. When they threw a quiet family party for Esmerelda’s first birthday
While most celebs tend to throw a blow-out party for their child’s first birthday, Eva and Ryan kept it simple for their baby goose. “It was a quiet and casual party,” a source told Us. “It looked like it was just their simple style and more about family and close friends coming together to celebrate Esmeralda.”
5. When the whole family made a public appearance in matching skeleton costumes
It had been more than a year since the birth of Ryan and Eva’s little Esmerelda, but the public still hadn’t caught a glimpse of the baby girl. It wasn’t until Halloween of 2015, that we got to see the whole family as a unit, and in matching costumes, no less. The handsome trio looked spook-tacular as they went trick-or-treating as a whole family of skeletons.
6. When Ryan shouted out to “Eva and Ezzy” on SNL
Ryan hosted his first Saturday Night Live last week and charmed audiences and the Internet with his fits of giggling during the live performance. (Who wouldn’t giggle? Kate McKinnon was on point.) But the cutest part of the broadcast was at the very end when Ryan gave a sweet shoutout to his two favorite ladies: “Eva and Ezzy, I love you.”
7. When Ryan said basically the cutest thing ever about Eva
Usually so quiet about his relationship with the mother of his daughter, Ryan broke his silence on December 7, 2015. “I know that I’m with the person I’m supposed to be with,” Ryan told Hello! magazine. He adds that the only thing he looks for in a woman is “that she’s Eva Mendes. There’s nothing else I’m looking for.”
