Just because Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes like to keep their romance out of the public eye doesn’t mean that they aren’t completely in love! By keeping their relationship “extremely private,” sources say that it has only made the 37-year-old actor and his longtime love, Eva, 44, happier in their relationship than ever before.

“Ryan is completely infatuated with Eva. His main goal is to make her happy,” an insider recently revealed to Us Weekly and pointed out that they also like to keep their PDA to a minimum. “You’re not going to see them out on the town or hanging with other celebrities very often. Ryan wants to keep his private life out of the public’s reach.”

Eva barely even goes to any red carpet events with Ryan. As a proud mother-of-two to her daughters Esmeralda Gosling, 4, and Amada Gosling, 2, she likes to spend her free time at home rather than be photographed outside with her hubby.

“What people don’t know about me is that I love being home,” she said in a previous interview with Shape. “Instead of hitting the red carpet, I’d rather be with our girls.” Eva couldn’t even fathom the thought of leaving her young children at home to return to shooting movies.

“I’m just so obsessed with my kids that I don’t want to leave them. They’re just still so little,” she previously told Harper’s Bazaar. Returning to do Hollywood would mean that Eva would have to learn how to balance her family life and a very hectic film schedule. She’s already so busy, so the New York & Company clothing designer admitted that she’s just trying to do the best that she can with her current schedule.

“I don’t feel like I have it balanced at all. I kind of have been figuring it out as I’m going along and it’s just important to have a support system,” she said. “I have my family, I have Ryan’s family and that’s just like, invaluable to have family around supporting you.”
