Now it makes sense!

Have you noticed Eva Mendes never walks the red carpet with Ryan Gosling? In a new rare interview, the stunning actress revealed the reason why she remains so out of the spotlight while her rumored husband makes his public appearances time and time again.

And as you could probably guess, it has a lot to do with the couple’s two daughters, Esmerelda, 2, and Amada, 10 months, who have never been seen before.

Ryan, 36, and Eva, 43, began dating in 2011 after meeting on the set of their film The Place Beyond the Pines. The very private couple — the only red carpet they’ve ever walked together was back in 2012! — welcomed Esmerelda in September 2014 and Amada in April 2016 and allegedly secretly tied the knot in early 2016.

At the Oscars in February 2017, Ryan made headlines after he brought a mystery woman to the award show rather than Eva. Turns out, the woman was Ryan’s sister, Mandi Gosling, even though fans were hoping Ryan would step out Eva that time.

“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 and say that 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 said onstage. “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.” Talk about relationship goals!
