Esmeralda Amada Gosling is the firstborn of Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes. She was named after a character of Victor Hugo’s masterpiece The Hunchback of Notre Dame and got her second name, which signifies beloved in Spanish, in honor of her maternal great-grandmother.
Esmeralda loves painting and various crafts. She and her younger sister are raised bilingual and can speak both English and Spanish. The girl isn’t aware of her dad’s popularity and thinks that Ryan is an astronaut after visiting him on the set of First Man.
Mendes reveals that they are controlling parents who don’t allow their daughters running wild and eating whatever they want. The celebrities try to keep their kids away from the limelight. However, the photos of the happy family taken by paparazzi just melt our hearts.
By the way, when Gosling is asked about his life with three girls, he answers that it’s heaven as he lives with angels.
A curious fact: Esmeralda has her own sense of style. She cuts her socks and likes wearing them as sleeves.
