If the rash of celebrity breakups has you down, don’t worry — Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes are still going strong over a decade later. So strong, apparently, that fans are speculating that the longtime couple are married. On Nov. 15, Mendes, 48, posted an Instagram photo displaying her “de Gosling” wrist tattoo, which translates to “of Gosling” in English. In Hispanic culture, many married women use “de” to change their last name for their husbands’ after marriage. Was this the actor’s way of subtly confirming that she and Gosling are married?
Given how private both Mendes and Gosling, 42, are, the actor didn’t elaborate further on the meaning behind the ink, but she did confirm that it wasn’t a new tattoo in the comments section after her hair and makeup artist, Steeve Daviault, asked if it was real. “ummm….it’s old. You’ve seen it many times,” she wrote, adding, “f, I love you.”
Mendes further fueled marriage rumors on Nov. 17 when she appeared on Australia’s “Today” show and referred to Gosling as her “husband.” As she was discussing her time in Australia, she said, “Everybody’s been welcoming us. It’s been so beautiful and my husband, Ryan, is here . . . and our children are here. We’re having the best time.”
Then, during a recent stop on “The Kyle and Jackie O Show,” Mendes was asked whether she and Gosling secretly tied the knot, to which she responded, “But who says we weren’t already?”
The “Barbie” actor and Skura Style brand ambassador first got together after they started working on “Beyond the Pines” in 2011, and they share two daughters, Esmeralda and Amada. Reps for both stars did not immediately respond to POPSUGAR’s request for comment, so only time will tell if the marriage rumors are actually true.
