Eva Mendes is finally answering the one question we’ve all been dying to ask since the birth of her daughter…

Does Ryan Gosling change diapers around the house?

In a new interview with The Today Show, which aired Friday (Oct. 9), the new mom says that task is pretty much a “given.”

“I don’t think that’s a plus anymore,” she tells Natalie Morales, who interviewed the actress for the Viva Today series celebrating Latino culture in the U.S.

Mendes, 41, and Gosling welcomed their first child, Esmeralda Amada, in September 2014. The couple have remained private about both their relationship and their new family.

“I love being an example to somebody,” Mendes says on how she’s enjoyed motherhood.

“If I’m like, what should I wear, should I do this project, I think about my daughter. All I have to do is think about her face and then I know the answer immediately. I guess she’s like my moral compass in a way. It’s just beautiful to be an example for her.”
