Ryan Gosling loves being a dad! The 35-year-old La La Land star opened up about his "angels" - daughters Esmerelda, two, and five-month-old Amada - and his biggest role to date. "It’s the happiest time in my life," he told Entertainment Tonight while premiering the film at the Toronto International Film Festival.
Ryan and his longtime love Eva Mendes, 42, have worked hard to keep their little girls out of the spotlight, so much so that reports of their second daughter's arrival came just two weeks after the news broke that Eva was expecting. And while Ryan recently gushed to Hello! about Esmeralda's "ferocious mind," we'll have to wait for more details on little Amada.
The pair had some A-List well-wishers on their side when it came to the birth of baby number two. During an interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live right after Amada's arrival in April, Ryan didn't go into details about his daughter's birth, but discussed the advice he received from one of his co-stars.
"God bless [Don Rickles]," Ryan told the late-night host. "He is such a lovely man. When my little girl was born, he sent me a gift certificate for Toys 'R' Us... It said, 'Don't worry, you'll get another job. Kids are expensive.'"
The Nice Guys actor is just as in love with his leading lady as he is with his daughters. “I know that I’m with the person I’m supposed to be with,” he told Hello!.
When it comes to what he looks for in a woman, the heartthrob continued: "That she’s Eva Mendes. There’s nothing else I’m looking for.”
