Eva Mendes & Ryan Gosling secretly married, ‘infatuated with each other’

Hey girl, while you were mourning the Year That Love Died (credit: Hecate), Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling affirmed their relationship by secretly getting married! This makes me happier than it otherwise would, especially considering that we always have to use these turban photos of them together and I never really cared about them as a couple. Somehow they went underground with their relationship after a very paparazzi-friendly courtship and now they have two kids together and have made it official. They got married at some indeterminate date “earlier this year” attended by friends and family and yet we’re only just learning about it now. I love this and how under the radar they’ve been. They only come out to promote stuff and they’re not over the top about their love at all.

US Magazine has this story and they feature Eva and Ryan’s secret wedding as a sidebar on the cover. Jana Kramer, a country singer and DWTS contestant I’ve barely heard of, takes the cover with her confessional about being married to a sex addict. This just brings home to me how much US, and also People, have missed the boat with their covers this week in the wake of the Brangelina split. It’s like Angelina dropped the divorce news in time for the celebrity outlets to pick it up too and no one was agile enough. Here’s US’s story and it’s just a blurb really with some nice quotes Ryan gave about his older daughter earlier this month:

The La La Land actor and his love of five years, Eva Mendes, quietly tied the knot earlier this year among a small group of family and friends, multiple sources reveal in the new issue of Us Weekly.

“Eva and Ryan have always felt like a married couple,” says a source close to Mendes, who starred in the 2012 drama, The Place Beyond the Pines, with Gosling. “They are infatuated with each other.”

And their little brood. While he worked in Toronto September 12, Gosling’s mind kept drifting back home to his girls. “I’m a lucky man,” the 35-year-old gushed to Us of Mendes, 42, and their daughters, Esmeralda, 2, and Amada, 4 months, at the Toronto International Film Festival. “We couldn’t be happier. They are so sweet.”

Gosling is also protective of his leading ladies. “I take my little girl to the park, and we always write her name in chalk, and some kid has been erasing her name and writing their name over it,” he revealed on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in May. “And this kid has access to an unfair amount of chalk. My little girl doesn’t care; she’s like, ‘Well, let’s just chalk anywhere else.’ And I’m like, ‘No! They’re disrespecting your mother because she gave you this name, and they’re erasing it. So the only way to really get back at them is to erase their name. And not disrespect their mother, but definitely put her on notice.'”

You know what makes me think that these two are the real deal? (Other than the fact that they haven’t been doing a ton of photo ops or gushing about each other?) The nice story about how Ryan rented Frank Sinatra’s former Palm Springs resort for Eva for her birthday earlier this year. They brought their daughter with them too, which just shows that they’re a close family. (Their youngest wasn’t born yet.) Plus Ryan did say, very briefly last year, that Eva was the “the person I’m supposed to be with.” Congratulations to Eva and Ryan! I hope they agree on parenting issues.

Update: TMZ is reporting that this isn’t true and that Eva and Ryan aren’t married which is bizarre to me. Usually US Magazine gets it right.

    Maybe it’s because it’s a rainy Wednesday and the Divorce Of Doom is all around us, but this news made me really happy.

  2. SilverUnicorn says:

    Congrats to them!!

  3. Becky says:

    Some happy news for a change.

  4. Little Darling says:

    Hey Girl, you and your turban won this game.

    Good for them.

  5. zan says:

    The chalk thing is a bit intense, I don’t think a kid is disrespecting the mother’s choice if he/she erase the name of another kid.. it’s just what kids do, they play.. Other than that, good for them, they seem great together!

  6. Audrey says:

    Gosh i remember when people swore they were a publicity stunt. Happy for them 🙂

  7. OhDear says:

    If true, congratulations to them!

  8. Brittney B. says:

    Don’t they go to print over the weekend, though? She filed for divorce on Monday; they couldn’t include it because this week’s issue was already in the final approval/printing stages.

  9. Onerous says:

    I know she bugs a lot of people, but I love her. Good for them. It’s always nice to hear about a married couple in love.

  10. Georgia says:

    Congrats to Eva and Ryan. I always loved them together. Especially because they had so many deniers. Even if it’s not true that they’re married, I’m glad they’re still together

    • Shelleycon says:

      Me too, it’s really nice and refreshing to hear about a couple that are in love but don’t need the entire world to know every single detail of their relationship and sex life. Beautiful.

  11. BadAssCompass says:

    they still don’t make sense to me, but I’m kind of positively jealous, if that’s even possible.

  12. Rocio says:

    <3 It's springtime in Argentina!!! LOVE IS IN THE AIR! Congrats, Eva and Ryan!

  13. Zuzus Girl says:

    I’ve always liked them together. That chalk story was very sweet.

  14. Borgqueen says:

    Damn Eva you locked him down. I thought there were some reports that she trapped him with the first baby and he stayed with her reluctantly. He eventually gave in.

    I used to know this gorgeous guy and he had a bunch of girls but one of them was so ugly and persistent. She stayed patient and while he rotated through a bunch of girls over the years, she stayed quiet and loyal and he eventually married her. I always liked her but used to wonder why she didnt just move on. But 10 years later, he married and had kids with her and was very happy.

    • thaliasghost says:

      So you judge a person’s life, character and personality entirely by their outward appearance – that they are not responsible for? How do you not know that the person whose face didn’t happen to have a perfectly symmetrical bone structure isn’t actually really sweet, kind, funny and smart and makes him feel happy? How do you know that maybe all those girls who happened to be beautiful simply didn’t share his interests or didn’t “get” him?

      • GingerCrunch says:

        The “ugly” could be referring to her personality? I hope?

      • Susan says:

        I agree. This was a really “ugly” comment.

      • Starkiller says:

        Your comment is a nice notion, but unfortunately, that’s not the way the world works. Based on your comment, I’m going to assume you’re not ugly, and so I would not expect you to understand this, but those of us who are physically unattractive live a very different reality to those who are attractive or even average looking. People are nasty or outright rude to us for no reason–the best we can hope for is to be ignored. The process which Borgqueen describes is the only way we can ever reasonably hope to find a romantic partner. Is it fair? Of course not, but it’s reality.

    • Anon33 says:

      Also, can we not with this “she trapped him” bullshit? Unless a man has some kind of medical note saying he is prohibited from wearing condoms, he cannot be “trapped.” If a man doesnt want a damn baby that bad, he needs to wrap that shit up or *gasp* not sleep with the person! It’s that simple. I don’t have sympathy for any man who claims otherwise.

    I’ve kinda grown to love this pairing. It’s great to see an older yet beautiful woman of color with a younger handsome guy and that they both ended up falling in love, having babies, then getting married. It’s a very modern 21st century relationship. I wish them well.

  16. Heather says:

    I really like them together – congratulations! The Place Beyond the Pines (the movie where they met or fell in love) was really a great movie.

  17. minx says:

    I was surprised by this; congrats to them. They seem like a nice couple.

  18. AgeofBellendia says:

    Yay yay yay! at last, a story not about the Dirge of Doom! Congrats to both! (Seriously, did we really need 6 stories about Dumb and Dumber today???)

  19. Bridget says:

    But don’t they know it’s not official until they’ve publicly announced it?

  20. Mikeyangel says:

    He is a damn lucky man! She is my girl crush. I think she is drop dead beautiful and has an amazing body. He is classically handsome and all, but I believe her to be the catch, not him! We haven’t seen their babies have we, and if so not to pimping proportions. Love the privacy, I have a lot of respect for them for that.

  21. Jayna says:

    Very sweet.

  22. adastraperaspera says:

    That Jana Kramer cover gave me a flashback to when she moved into our neighborhood a few years ago. She and Brantley G threw brojams at her place in total disregard for noise or parking restrictions. Also, her tour bus would sit and idle on the street through the night, blocking people trying to get to work the next day. Some of our neighbors tried to chat with her about zoning, neighborhood vibe, etc., but she wasn’t friendly at all. Unfortunately for Kramer, if you throw a rock you hit an attorney on our street (including entertainment lawyers), so it didn’t take long for her to move her fake-country party elsewhere.

  23. GingerCrunch says:

    Sweet, refreshing story for a Hollywood couple! Glad to know that Ryan seems to be a good guy. Best wishes for their little family.

  24. Margo S. says:

    It’s just like alexis bledel and Vincent kartheiser (spelling?). They both got married and had a kid and no one knew! So great that they can have that privacy. Congrats to Ryan and Eva!

  25. JRenee says:

    Congrats to them.
