Ryan Gosling Gushes Over Eva Mendes, So Prepare For Your Heart To Melt Into A Huge Puddle

In case you're looking for something to boost your dreary Monday mood, some heartwarming quotes from Ryan Gosling should do the trick! In the latest issue of Hello! Canada, Gosling gushed over girlfriend Eva Mendes and talked about the family's upcoming holiday plans — including spending Christmas with their daughter Esmeralda, who was born last September. The Notebook actor told the magazine,

This will be our first Christmas where [Esmeralda is] sort of taking it all in, so that’s exciting.

I wonder if Gosling will be one of those dedicated dads who puts on a Santa Claus outfit and gets all dressed up. Considering Esmeralda was only a few months old during the last holiday season, it makes sense that this is a big deal for the new family. Although these two tend to keep their personal lives private, I'm crossing my fingers that Mendes and Gosling share adorable Christmas photos with their daughter. Because honestly, there are few things cuter than a baby wearing reindeer antlers.

When talking about his relationship with Mendes, Gosling said, "I know that I’m with the person I’m supposed to be with." And in case that's not enough to melt your heart into a huge puddle, the swoon-worthy comments continued. The 35-year-old was asked what he looks for in a romantic partner and gave the best possible answer. Gosling simply said, "That she’s Eva Mendes. There’s nothing else I’m looking for." Ugh, could these two be any more perfect? Nope, I don't think so.
