So, fans should take everything with a grain of salt until it has been proven true and correct.Despite the swooning on social media for his Notebook-esque outpouring, I can’t help but feel that Mendes, an award-winning actor in her own right, took one for the team and provided the emotional labour needed for Gosling to further his own career What’s more, there’s often an assumption within relationships that the woman will stay at home to look after children, sick or in other cases, ageing relatives.Gosling also noted that fatherhood has been pretty easy so far, saying "[It's] not rocket science."Rather sweetly, Ryan also gushed about his baby momma, Eva Mendes."I know that I'm with the person I'm supposed to be with," he said, adding that the only quality he looks for in a woman is "that she's Eva Mendes.There's nothing else I'm looking for."With Mother's Day rapidly approaching in the US (May 10), you'd think new Mother Eva Mendes would be gearing up for a celebration or two.This isn’t something that women are just “better at” and we’re “angels” for taking on such work.Rather women are taught to be self-less and to care, and more often than not, feel an obligation to do so.It is something that is expected of women, and valorising it perpetuates this as an ideal that women have to live up to, and often make sacrifices for.Earlier this year, Gosling told the that women are “better” and “stronger” than men.
Gosling's speech runs uncomfortably close to the old adage "behind every great man is a great woman".Step forward Ryan Gosling who has allegedly got a new tattoo dedicated to his baby daughter, Esmeralda Amanda.Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling are currently hitting the dating headlines.Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling's daughter Esmeralda was indeed only born a mere 7 months ago.While it's quite possible the handsome Mr Gosling may have something planned for her first mother's Day, Mendes says she will be using the time to selflessly celebrate her own Mother."This Mother's Day is definitely all about my mom. My brother's sick, so it's all about my mom, honoring her"While she left out details of her brother's illness, she continued that herself and her family would be "going…over to her [Eva's Mother's] house and [would] bombard her with love."SOURCE: US WEEKLYIt is Monday morning and we're in need of cheer.
