Ryan Gosling 'didn't want kids' until he met Eva Mendes

In an interview with GQ's Global Summer issue, Ryan Gosling talked about interesting topics. After meeting Eva Mendes, he realized that he wanted to have children, although he had no such plans before that. It was Mendes who changed Gosling's world and his view of everything.

"I wasn’t thinking about kids before I met her, but after I met Eva, I realized that I just didn’t want to have kids without her," he said, as quoted by etonline.com "And there were moments on The Place Beyond the Pines where we were pretending to be a family, and I didn’t really want it to be pretend anymore.

I realized that this would be a life I would be really lucky to have." The couple had a daughter, Esmeralda, in 2014, and two years later they had a second daughter, Amada. After the birth of Amada, Gosling realized that he had to devote more time to his children.

"I wanted to spend as much time as I could with them," he said.

Ryan Gosling on the life before his children

Speaking of life before the birth of children, it seems that Gosling was not particularly happy. The birth of children awakened something special in him, and it is obvious that he enjoys the role of a parent.

"I would never want to go back, you know?" Gosling said. "I’m glad I didn’t have control over my destiny in that way, because it was so much better than I ever had dreamed for myself." When he has problems with parenting, he asks for advice from his wife, who is great at being a mother.

"I just lean on Eva," he said. "She knows what's important, always. She just somehow knows. So if ever I'm in my head about it, I just ask her."
