With so many high-profile celebrity relationships coming to an end, it is always nice to see a power couple who are happily married and are enjoying their family life together. Which brings us to the beautiful Hollywood couple Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling, who have two very beautiful young daughters together.
Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes already had their daughter Esmeralda Amada together, before then welcoming their new daughter Amada Lee into the world a short while back. Now, Eva has opened up about her children, revealing just why she and Ryan decided to give their daughters the same name.
Mendes told Latina magazine, "My grandmother’s name is Amada, and Esmeralda Amada is the name of our oldest. We had a few names picked out for our new baby, and when she was born, we didn’t feel like those names were her. We came up with a few more, even that morning, and tried them out. We were like, 'What about Viviana?' But we just kept going back to Amada."
She added, "In true Latin fashion, we reuse names all the time. I actually told Ryan, 'This is common in Latin culture, so it wouldn’t be crazy'. So we went with Amada because it was something we kept going back to. When we looked at her, we thought, 'Aww, Amadita.'"
We have always been big fans of both Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling and we were delighted when we discovered they were dating. Now that they are happily married with a beautiful young family, we couldn't be happier for them.
