As if we needed another reason to love Ryan Gosling: Not surprisingly, the first-time father is a seriously cute doting dad. Though the actor is busy filming his new movie The Nice Guys, Gosling is still making time to be with his girlfriend Eva Mendes and their daughter Esmeralda Amada.
According to People, Gosling has been flying back and forth between Los Angeles and Atlanta to spend as much time as possible with his new family. "He's been wanting to be a father for a long time," a source tells the magazine. "He's cherishing every minute."
To really get the most out of their time with their daughter, Gosling and Mendes have chosen to raise Esmeralda without a nanny, and while they're understandably exhausted, the source says they're feeling "so in love."

And if this doesn't melt your heart, we don't know what will: "[The baby] is smiling and cooing and loves when Ryan sings to her," adds the source. Yes, that's right — the Hollywood heartthrob sings to his nearly four-month-old daughter!
The family of three seems happier than ever, especially after a rare public outing where the new parents enjoyed a night on the town to attend a comedy show. So should we hold out hope that Gosling will pop the question in 2015? Signs are pointing towards no, but not for lack of being in a loving and committed relationship. "Ryan and Eva are super-super-private," E! News reports. "Neither felt they need to get married, it's just not a huge priority for either of them. They know what they have."
Hey girl, it's not all bad — while we'd love to see Gosling looking dapper in a tux and Mendes wowing in a white wedding dress, it seems like these two are happier than ever.
