(TheLibertyRevolution.com)- In a recent interview, actress Eva Mendes appeared to confirm the rumors that she and her long-time boyfriend, actor Ryan Gosling,” had secretly married at some point during their 11-year relationship.
Mendes appeared on Australia’s “Today” show on Channel Nine. When discussing the warm welcome she and Gosling received from the Australian people, Mendes referred to Gosling as “my husband Ryan.”
Earlier this month, Mendes posted a photo to her Instagram account showing off a tattoo on her left arm that read, “de Gosling.”
In Hispanic culture, a married woman sometimes adds her husband’s last name to her own, using “de” (or “of”) to separate the two surnames, so her tattoo could be interpreted to mean her name is Eva Mendes de Gosling.
Or at least that’s what her fans thought.
The Instagram photo got fans excited, with social media speculating that it was proof that Mendes and Gosling were married.
During another interview on Australian TV, the actress was asked about the rumors sparked by the Instagram photo and once again Mendes hinted that she and Gosling were married.
Mendes played coy, saying she liked to “keep it all mysterious” because she is a woman of mystery. She said she got the tattoo “years ago,” adding that she got a “lot of funny questions” after she posted the picture.
Gosling and Mendes were first linked in 2011 when they both starred in the movie “The Place Beyond the Pines.”
The rumors that the couple had secretly tied the knot began in 2016, however, neither Mendes nor Gosling confirmed the reports.
Last year, Mendes was photographed wearing a large ring on her left-hand ring finger during a family hike, further fueling the rumors. However, the couple remained quiet.
Mendes and Gosling have two daughters together.
