Is this real life?! Hollywood couple Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes barely make any public appearances together, so to see the handsome actor out and about with his lady on Saturday, Sept. 30 was a real treat. The best part? They were holding hands in the new pics!

The duo stepped out at NYC’s TAO nightclub after the Season 43 premiere of Saturday Night Live, in which Ryan hosted. Watch the video below to see the new photos of Eva and Ryan!

For the parents’ night out — they have two daughters, Esmeralda, 3, and Amada, 1 — Ryan, 36, donned navy blue slacks with a patterned sweater and denim jacket, while Eva, 43, stunned in a patterned jumpsuit with black open-toe platform heels.

Ryan made headlines back in January when he gave a sweet shout-out to Eva — whom he reportedly secretly married last year — during his Golden Globes Best Actor acceptance speech. “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.” So cute!

And The Notebook star couldn’t help but thank his little girls as well. “To my daughters, Amada and Esmeralda, I love you,” he said. Hopefully these new photos of Eva and Ryan mean we will get to see more from their life in the future!
