Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes are a Hollywood couple who prioritize privacy in their relationship. Their unique approach to parenting sets them apart from other A-list couples, as they focus on instilling a humble and grounded lifestyle in their children.

The couple places great importance on quality family time, engaging in simple activities like visiting the local farmers’ market or playing in the park with their kids. By prioritizing their family, Gosling and Mendes show the importance of love and togetherness in leading a happy and fulfilling life, serving as positive role models for their daughters.

Eva Mendes deliberately chose to prioritize her family over her acting career. While she never stopped acting, she opted to slow down and focus on being present for her children. But, she clarified, “I never quit acting. I wanted to be home with my babies, and fortunately, my other business ventures allowed me to do that more than acting would.”

Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes are committed to being fully present in their children’s lives. They actively manage their schedules and have chosen not to hire a nanny. As a source remarks, “They’re hands-on parents and don’t have any nannies.”

Eva Mendes believes in passing on the same values to her children that her parents instilled in her. For this reason, she treasures every moment spent with her kids, recognizing the impact that her mother’s presence had on her during her formative years. “My mom was able to be there for me at home until I was about 8 or 9, and those memories for me just formed who I was.”

Ryan Gosling recognizes the immense sacrifices that his partner has made to create a warm and loving family environment for their children. Without Mendes’ unwavering support, he wouldn’t have had the freedom to focus on his acting career.

He acknowledges the challenging juggling act that Mendes manages, raising their children while supporting her brother in his battle with cancer, saying, “While I was singing and dancing and playing piano (in La La Land), my lady was raising our daughter, pregnant with our second, and trying to help her brother with his battle with cancer. If she hadn’t taken all that experience, someone else would be up here.”

The couple is firm on homeschooling their kids.

The Gosling family has decided to homeschool their children to ensure they can spend as much time as possible together. Eva Mendes has spoken about their commitment to keeping the family unit strong, saying, “I have a strong belief that you should try to always keep a family together, no matter what you’re doing, especially when the children are small.”

While Mendes does not personally handle the homeschooling, she fully supports the decision and recognizes that it’s not one of her strengths. The couple’s dedication to their children’s education reflects their commitment to being fully present and involved in their lives.

They are fortunate to have someone who travels with them and can continue their children’s education while on the road. Eva Mendes shared, “We’re lucky enough to have someone we travel with that can continue their education at this point, and what we do is we try to incorporate the city we’re in as much as possible.” During their recent extended stay in Australia, she noted that her children even picked up an “Aussie twang.”

Homeschooling provides a unique opportunity for parents and children to bond and create special memories while ensuring that education remains a top priority. For Ryan and Eva, homeschooling allows them to avoid the guilt of leaving their children behind during work-related travel.

As Eva reflected on the passing of time, she expressed her desire to cherish every moment with her children. “Time, in general, is something I think about a lot now. My kids are growing up so fast I need to keep an eye on the clock in a way I never used to,” she confessed.
