Are Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling married?

Eva and Ryan are not married.

In 2016, speculation began to circulate that Eva and Ryan has tied to knot.

However, a rep denied the claims.

How many children does Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling have?

Eva and Ryan welcomed their first baby in 2014, a little girl called Esmeralda Amada Gosling.

In 2016, Eva gave birth to their second baby, another girl who they called Amada Lee Gosling.

In a recent Women’s Health interview, Eva said that falling in love with Ryan made her want to have children.

The actress said: "It was the furthest thing from my mind.

"Ryan Gosling happened. I mean, falling in love with him. Then it made sense for me to have...not kids, but his kids. It was very specific to him."
