In Photos: 13 dreamy photos of Ryan Gosling

Hey girl: It’s Ryan Gosling’s birthday.

We first swooned for the handsome actor as romantic Noah in The Notebook, but several blockbusters (and many shirtless scenes) later, Ryan — who turns 34 on Nov. 12 — has officially cemented his status as a bonafide Hollywood hottie.

Even hotter? He's a first-time dad, having welcomed baby Esmeralda with one of the world's most beautiful actresses, Eva Mendes.

Best of all, he’s Canadian!

As if you need more convincing, click through the gallery below to see the most sigh-worthy photos of Ryan.
