Wedding bells? Two years after Eva Mendes flaunted a tattoo that hinted she had married Ryan Gosling, In Touch exclusively confirmed details about the private pair’s intimate wedding.

Are Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes Married?

While Ryan and Eva have never revealed whether they are married, In Touch exclusively revealed in March 2024 that they tied the knot two years prior.

“They had a secret backyard wedding at their Los Feliz home,” an insider revealed. “It was very intimate – just their immediate family and the kids attended.”

What Is Eva Mendes’ Tattoo for Ryan Gosling?

The Hitch actress shared an Instagram photo on November 15, 2022, showing her ink reading “de Gosling” on her left wrist. It translates in Spanish to “of Gosling.” In Hispanic cultures, a husband’s last name is often added to a wife’s original surname with the same wording.

Though the brunette beauty first got the tattoo in 2020, this was the first time she’s prominently shown it off. Eva posed with her arm held up covering her face with her inner wrist prominently showing off her body art.

How Did Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes Meet?

The couple met and fell in love in 2011 while filming the drama The Place Between the Pines.

The famously private couple rarely speak about their relationship. However, the actress previously admitted that she didn’t know if marriage was in the cards for her before she met Ryan.

“It’s a very old-fashioned, archaic kind of thing,” Eva told Chelsea Handler during a 2011 appearance on her former E! late night talk show, Chelsea Lately. “We did it for land originally. How unromantic is that? I think husband and wife, they’re very unsexy words. I actually think it’s really sexy to be with someone in their 50s or 60s and be like, ‘That’s my boyfriend.'”

Do Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes Have Kids?

The pair share two daughters, Esmeralda, born in September 2014, and Amada, born in April 2016.

Eva admittedly never pictured herself as a mother before settling down with her now-husband. “I never wanted babies before until I fell in love with Ryan, and it kind of worked out to where I was 40 and having my first baby,” she revealed on Australia’s Fitzy & Wippa radio show in October 2020, adding, “I think I was 42 for the second one, so it worked out in that way that I had a career and then I change my focus to my family.”
