Eva Mendes has seemingly confirmed that she and Ryan Gosling secretly tied the knot during an interview on Thursday.
While promoting the charity of the Ronald McDonald House “Today Australia,” the ‘Training Day’ star, 48, called Gosling her ‘husband’ after being asked about her time Down Under.
“I love it here,” said the mother of two. “Everyone is great, everyone welcomes us, it’s been so beautiful. My husband Ryan is here… and our kids are here, having the best time.”
Mendes – who shares daughters Esmeralda, 8, and Amada, 6, with the 42-year-old actor — joked about her “ordinary” looking husband after hosts Karl Stefanovic and Allison Langdon played a shirtless clip of Gosling from “Crazy, Stupid, Love.”
“Yeah, that’s my life unfortunately,” she joked. “And he’s a great cook and he bakes. I got the short end of the stick, didn’t I!”
Mendes’ comments caused a frenzy among fans, as the famous private couple rarely talk about it their ten-year relationship in public.
“Finally we have it. I hope there is no other reason to announce this now,” one fan wrote following a fan account posted the clip on Instagram.
“She’s got a wedding ring on,” another fan commented, while a third wished the “beautiful” couple “congratulations.”
While Mendes may have put an end to the marriage speculation once and for all, she teased the subtle announcement earlier this week by posting a very special tattoo tribute to Gosling.
Tuesday morning is the ‘Hitch’ actress went to Instagram to show off a tattoo on her inner wrist that reads “the gosling.”
In Hispanic culture, women may add “de” — or “or” — to their last name after they get married to join the two monikers.
So the move may have been a way for the actress to re-introduce herself to the world as Eva Mendes de Gosling.
