After a significant career in Hollywood as an actress, Eva Mendes decided to take a step back and focus on her family. She got married to Ryan Gosling in 2011 after they met on set and fell in love.

Seldom do we see such beautiful love stories in Hollywood where both unproblematic actors get together and decide to spend their lives with each other. Mendes and Gosling have kept their lives pretty private ever since they got together, and they only share few insights into their marriage publicly.

It can be a difficult and life-changing decision for a woman to put her career on the back burner and focus solely on caring for her family. However, Eva Mendes claimed that the decision came easily to her and she did not need to give it a second thought. She has starred in movies like The Place Beyond the Pines, Hitch, and Lost River.

Mendes loves spending time with her daughters Esmeralda Amada, 9, and Amada Lee, 7. Even her husband Ryan Gosling appreciated her sacrifices and hard work she has put in for the family on countless occasions. He agrees that since Mendes chose to stay at home, he was able to go out and make a name for himself.

Now that their daughters are busy with school, it gave Mendes a chance to focus on getting herself back to work. She has written a book and is putting her family’s experiences to paper. Her book will be published in both English and Spanish. In an exclusive interview with People, she said,

“Desi, Mami and the Never-Ending Worries is a love letter to my kids and yours. Learning how to train our brain to work for us and not against us is easier said than done! At my home and in Desi’s, we try to deal with the never-ending worries and anxieties that we all have, so those negative thoughts don’t take over and dominate.”

It’s an illustrated children’s book with drawings by Abbey Bryant. Mendes wishes to help parents feel seen and supported on their journey to parenthood. They calm their children down and help them overcome their fears. The actress-turned-author has taken inspiration from her and Gosling’s experiences with their daughters.
