Ryan Gosling melted hearts everywhere when made a touching tribute to his love Eva Mendes during his acceptance speech at the 2017 Golden Globes over the weekend — and now, Eva is finally responding to his adorable gesture on Instagram.
The 42-year-old posted a photo of R&B singer-turned-actress Janelle Monáe, who attended the awards ceremony as a nominee for her role in Hidden Figures. The edgy star wore a custom black-and-white polka dot high-low gown by Giorgio Armani Privé, and Eva posted a photo of her from the red carpet — admiring Janelle’s style.

“Obviously this wasn't my favorite moment of the night… But it was definitely my favorite style moment of the night. The stunning and talented [Janelle] is killing me with this look. So, so, so beautiful,” Eva wrote in the pic's caption.
Even though Ryan's wife was not by his side during his big Golden Globes moment — when he accepted his Best Actor award for La La Land — she was still on his mind. The 35-year-old made sure to mention his gorgeous love during his speech and thanked her for the sacrifices she made in order for him to focus on his work.

“You don't get to be up here without standing on the shoulders of a mountain of people and there's no time to thank everyone, I just would like to try to thank one person properly," Ryan said onstage.
"While I was singing and dancing and playing piano and having one of the best experiences I've ever had on a film, my lady was raising our daughter, pregnant with our second and trying to help her brother fight his battle with cancer," he continued. "If she hadn't taken all that on so that I could have this experience, it would surely be someone else up here other than me today. So, sweetheart, thank you."
