Eva Mendes Reacts to Ryan Gosling's Emotional Golden Globes Speech
We're not crying, you're crying.
You'll have to excuse us—we're still recovering from the touching acceptance speech that Ryan Gosling gave after he accepted his Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy Motion Picture win for his role in La La Land at last night's Golden Globe Awards, particularly the part where he paid a heartfelt tribute to his lady love Eva Mendes. And it looks like she is as equally smitten with the father of her two beautiful daughters, Esmeralda, 2, and Amada, 8 months.
The actress took to Instagram today to share her favorite style moment from the night (Janelle Monae's fierce polka dot ensemble), and gave a subtle shout-out to Gosling's touching words in the caption. "Obviously this wasn't my favorite moment of the night....But it was definitely my favorite style moment of the night," Mendes wrote. "The stunning and talented @janellemonae is killing me with this look. So so so beautiful #goldenglobes."

While on stage, Gosling gushed about his life partner and their children. "While I was singing, and dancing, and playing piano, and having one of the best experiences I’ve ever had ... my lady was raising our daughter, pregnant with our second, and trying to help her brother fight his battle with cancer," the actor said. "If she hadn’t taken all that on so I could have this experience, it would surely be someone else up here other than me tonight. Sweetheart, thank you. To my daughters, Amada, Esmeralda, I love you. And if I may, I’d like to dedicate this to the memory of her brother, Juan Carlos Mendez."
But this was hardly the first time that Gosling has destroyed our hearts. Check out many more right this way.
