The couple, who met on the set of “The Place Beyond the Pines,” has two daughters, Esmeralda Amada Gosling and Amada Lee Gosling. Mendes, who had her children in her forties, feels incredibly blessed to have had problem-free pregnancies. She believes that being a mother is the most creative thing she has ever done in her life.

Mendes is known for her adaptability and effortlessly rocks anything from sweatpants to haute couture. As a model and brand ambassador, she has collaborated with renowned brands like Calvin Klein, Cartier, and Reebok. She has also worked on her own collection with New York & Company and is the creative director of a beauty brand.

Despite her successful career, Mendes made the decision to prioritize her children’s upbringing over her acting career. While she took a break from the movie industry, she clarified on Instagram that she never quit acting. Her other business ventures allowed her to be present for her babies, and she cherishes every moment with them.

Both Mendes and Gosling believe in keeping their family together, even while juggling demanding work schedules that require global travel. Mendes is inspired by her own mother, who was always there for her during her formative years, and she strives to provide the same foundation for her daughters.

In their Los Angeles home, Mendes finds solace in taking charge of the household chores, particularly washing the dishes. For her, it’s more than just cleaning; it’s a meditative experience that brings clarity to her mind. She cherishes the control she has over her home, finding peace in a clean and organized kitchen.

Esmeralda and Amada are raised with love and care by their parents, without the need for nannies or housekeepers. Mendes and Gosling want their daughters to experience a normal childhood, surrounded by the love and support of their family. They both acknowledge and appreciate each other’s sacrifices in building a happy home.

As Mendes and Gosling continue to defy gender roles and societal expectations, they live life on their own terms. While Mendes is open to future acting opportunities, she and Gosling are committed to creating a life that works for their family. So, when the time comes for Mendes to return to the big screen, we hope to see her in roles that truly inspire her.
