Let us take a moment to grieve: Ryan Gosling might be a single man no more. The beautiful man reportedly married his equally beautiful counterpart and mother of his children, Eva Mendes, earlier this year, having kept it a secret for quite some time.
"Eva and Ryan have always felt like a married couple," a source close to Mendes told Us Weekly. "They are infatuated with each other."
TMZ, on the other hand, is disputing the claims, reporting that the couple is NOT, in fact, already hitched. Unfortunately, it's not likely that the couple is going to comment on the marriage rumor anytime soon — they are notoriously incredibly private about their, well, private life.
The actors started dating in 2011 while filming the 2012 drama, The Place Beyond the Pines. The duo welcomed their first daughter, Esmeralda Amada Gosling, in September 2014 after keeping Mendes' pregnancy a secret for 7-months. Mendes' second pregnancy was kept just as secretive as her first, with news of the pregnancy breaking just a month before Mendes gave birth to their second daughter, Amada Lee Gosling.
Yes, the first name of Baby No.2 shares the same moniker as the middle name of Baby No.1. But Mendes and Gosling have a good reason for the recycled moniker. "Amada was my grandmother's name," the actress explained back in 2014. "It means 'beloved' in Spanish."
"I'm a lucky man," Gosling, 35, gushed to Us Weekly of Mendes, 42, and their daughters, Esmeralda, 2, and Amada, 4 months, at the Toronto International Film Festival last week. "We couldn't be happier. They are so sweet."
"They've settled so well into their new family of three," an insider told E! News shortly after Amada Lee's birth. "Ryan is very hands on and has been taking the baby after the early morning feed so Eva can sleep in a bit. He sings the baby songs — they are both madly in love with this child."
Engagement rumors have been swirling around this stunning duo for quite some time. Mendes really took us for a loop when she was spotted sporting a gorg emerald and gold ring, leading us to speculate that her main man may have popped the question. But, alas, she was wearing it on the wrong hand.
Now that we're trolling her Instagram looking for evidence of their secret marriage, we spy something pretty telling... The actress posted an Instagram five weeks ago featuring her clothing line for New York & Company; in the photo Mendes is posing against a wall in a navy green trench coat and white ensemble beneath. On her left hand we spy with our little eyes a bit of a sparkle on her ring finger. Possibly her wedding ring? These two are so sneaky!
