Why Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling Are So Protective of Their Private World

Motherhood has led to Eva Mendes sharing parenting tidbits on occasion, but she and longtime partner Ryan Gosling have never flaunted their relationship.

The window into Eva Mendes' world closed just a bit tighter over the past few years.

The reliably private actress, designer and mother of two was already not one to post hardly anything about her longtime partner, Ryan Gosling, or their two daughters, Esmerelda, 8, and Amada, 7.

Not usually one to wade into the fray, in early 2021 Mendes clapped back at a commenter

who had speculated that she wasn't posting much because she'd had "work done" and was unhappy with the results.

"I'm posting less because I really want to be present for my family," the actress and designer chimed in.
