Motherhood wasn't even a blip on Eva Mendes' radar, until this happened

She says the prospect of having children "was the furthest thing from [her] mind." Eva didn't imagine herself as a mother until she met her future husband:

“Ryan Gosling happened. I mean, falling in love with him. Then it made sense for me to have…not kids, but his kids. It was very specific to him.” 

Doesn't this make so much sense. I mean who gets excited at the thought of staying up all night, getting spit up on  and not having time to shower. But meeting someone you adore changes everything and suddenly all you can think about is creating a little person who looks exactly like him.

Eva Mendes has two daughters with Ryan who are 4 and 2, and she feels like as parents they are just now emerging from what she calls 'survival mode.'
