Eva Mendes, 45, was photographed juggling her two little girls while out in Los Angeles on May 29. The actress – who has daughters Amada, 3, and Esmeralda, 4, with boyfriend Ryan Gosling, 38 – was snapped holding one child on her hip while guiding another as they headed towards a Silverlake restaurant to have lunch. Eva looked casual but chic in a white pencil skirt and a mustard cardigan. Meanwhile Esmeralda looked especially colorful in rainbow stripped leggings.

The actress was spotted with her two little ones, one week after gushing about motherhood during a May 20 appearance on The Talk. Speaking about Amada and Esmeralda, Eva revealed that she’s trying – and so far failing – to teach them to be bilingual. The actress, who was born to Cuban parents, said, “We’re trying to teach the kids Spanish and it’s harder than we thought because I speak Spanglish and that’s what they’re picking up. And it’s adorable, but it’s technically not a language. It’s Spanglish. So our little girl will be like, ‘Mommy, my boca [mouth] hurts because I think something got stuck in my diente [tooth].’ It’s so cute but I’m like ooh, that’s not really gonna [sic] work out there.”

Eva also revealed why, despite saying in the past she wasn’t sure that she wanted to have kids, she is now a mother-of-two. “Ryan Gosling,” she replied after The Talk co-host Sara Gilbert, 44, asked what happened to change her mind. “I just was never one of those women who really wanted children and then I fell in love with Ryan and I was like, I get it. I don’t want children. I want your children. I want your baby. OK.”

Ryan and Eva met and fell in love while working on the 2012 movie, The Place Beyond the Pines, which also co-starred Bradley Cooper. In addition to acting, Eva is also known for her fashion collection for New York & Company.
