Eva Mendes Says Parenting With Ryan Gosling Is "Beautiful, and Maddening" — Yup, We Agree!

As a parent of one kid, I know that if and when we get to the point where we want to welcome a second child into the picture (should we be so lucky), the world we know — the one that already seems crazy — will only get that much more wild. Which is why I genuinely appreciate Eva Mendes's parenting honesty when she spoke to Mario Lopez and Kit Hoover on Access Daily about raising two girls with Ryan Gosling.

"It's maddening, it's so hard," Mendes begins with a huge smile. "But you end your day, you put them to bed, and Ryan and I look at each other and we're like, 'We did it. we came out relatively unscathed.'" Eva and Ryan have two beautiful daughters together, 4-year-old Esmeralda and 2-year-old Amada, and it definitely sounds like they have their hands full!
