Ryan Gosling considers himself ‘lucky’ to have Eva Mendes

LOS ANGELES: Hollywood star Ryan Gosling is “very lucky” to have Eva Mendes and their daughter.


The “Big Short” star said his “The Place Beyond the Pines” co-star is his ideal woman and he is equally smitten with their 16-month-old little girl Esmeralda.

“My biggest investment is my family. I’m with the person I’m supposed to be with. I’m not looking for anything else beyond Eva and I feel very lucky that we have a beautiful, healthy daughter, who is an angel. That’s investment enough for me,” he said.

The 35-year-old actor is unsure whether he’s a good father but he tries to be around as much as possible.

Asked how he fares as a father, he said, “You’d have to ask my girlfriend really all I can say is that it’s important for me to be there for my daughter and that I want to be there too, because it’s so fun.”
