Just days after getting over John Krasinkski saying 'he pinches himself' over being married to Emily Blunt Ryan Gosling is after flooring us with comments he made about his partner Eva Mendes.

In an interview with GQ, the Notebook actor revealed that the reality of family life has, in fact, exceeded his greatest expectations.


Ryan, who share two daughters with the Hitch actress, said: "Your whole life, you hear what it's like to have kids, and all the clichés are true."

"I felt I knew that everything would be different, but until you experience that, there's no way to really know what people mean," he continued.


Paying tribute to Eva as a mother, he added: "Eva's the dream mother, and they're the dream babies. It's like a dream that I'm having right now. I'm dreaming it all."

Having welcomed his first child in 2014, the actor says her arrival signalled a profound change on his approach to life, explaining: "When you meet your kids you realise that they deserve great parents."


"And then you have your marching orders and you have to try and become the person that they deserve. There was nothing kind of premeditated about it, you know."

Reflecting on the impact Eva, Esmerelda and Amada have had on him, he added: "It just suddenly was: My life had changed. And thank God it did."

Excuse us while we weep into our sleeves.
