Eva Mendes alludes to her potential marriage to Ryan Gosling in a recent interview.
While appearing on Channel Nine’s Today to talk about her charity work in Australia on Friday, November 18th, 2022, Mendes referred to Gosling as her “husband” in passing.
“Everyone is so welcoming here and my husband Ryan is here, and we are having the best time,” Mendes told hosts Karl Stefanovic and Allison Langdon during the show, as reported by the Daily Mail.
According to the People, reps for Gosling and Mendes did not comment when asked for a clarification.
Mendes’ “husband” mention comes while Gosling films his new movie, The Fall Guy, in Australia. Just a week after the news of the filming, Mendes’ posted an image of a wrist tattoo giving a nod to her long-time partner on Instagram. In the photo, Mendes covers her face with her wrist, which features the words “de Gosling.”
According to People, the use of “de” or “of” in Hispanic culture unifies the woman’s last name with her husband’s after marriage. The tattoo was hence speculated to be a reference to the actress’ potential new title after marriage, “Mrs. Gosling.”
During the press run on Australia’s Kyle and Jackie O Show, Mendes clarified that she got the tattoo “years ago.” Mendes also shared that ever since she posted the photo on Instagram, she has since gotten “a lot of funny questions” after.
“But who says we weren’t already,” Mendes commented. “I like to keep it all mysterious. I’m a very mysterious woman.”
Mendes and Gosling first met on the set of The Place Beyond the Pines in 2011, as they played a couple with an infant son. The pair share daughters Esmeralda Amada, 8, and Amada Lee, 6 — whom they welcomed in 2014 and 2016 respectively.
