Ryan Gosling Opens Up About Daughter Esmeralda’s First Christmas

Ryan Gosling continues to be the DILF of the year. 

In an interview with Hello! magazine, the actor dished on the perks of being Canadian, his love Eva Mendes, and his daughter Esmeralda. She’s just a little over a year old now, and he admits that caring for her is “not rocket science.” He also says that he’s looking forward to the holiday season.

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

In case you weren’t swooning already, the Big Short star also revealed that he truly believes he and Mendes are meant for one another. “I know that I’m with the person I’m supposed to be with,” he said, adding that the only quality he looks for in a woman is “that she’s Eva Mendes. There’s nothing else I’m looking for.”

He’s also happy that he’s Canadian. “I love being Canadian,” he told the publication, adding, “I think growing up in Canada gives you a world perspective that I certainly enjoy.”
