Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes get hitched in secret ceremony

Notoriously private Hollywood couple manage to keep their big day under wraps

Hollywood hunk Ryan Gosling has tied the knot with long-term girlfriend Eva Mendes in a secret ceremony.

The 35-year-old actor and 42-year-old Latino beauty are believed to have wed earlier this year in a small and intimate ceremony.

US Weekly revealed the Hollywood couple invited just immediate family and a small group of friends.

A source close to Hitch star Eva told the magazine: ‘Eva and Ryan have always felt like a married couple. They are infatuated with each other.’

The couple met while working on thriller The Place Beyond The Pines in 2011.

The star of The Notebook and Eva have since gone on to have two daughters together.

Eva gave birth to their two-year-old daughter Esmeralda Amada Gosling in September 2014, before the couple welcomed Amada Lee Gosling this April.

Talking about his family at the Toronto Film Festival the Canadian actor said: ‘We couldn’t be happier. They are so sweet.’

He also gushed about his family in May on Good Morning America.

‘It’s heaven. It’s like walking through a field of flowers every day. I live with angels,’ he said just weeks after his youngest daughter was born.

It is no surprise the couple managed to keep their big day under wraps.

For they have always liked to keep the private life out of the public eye.

Incredibly they kept both their children’s births secret until the last minute and are rarely photographed out and about together.

It was only announced the couple were expecting their second child together on April 14, with Eva giving birth to Amanda just two weeks later.

Before Ryan found love with Eva he previously enjoyed an on/off relationship with his Notebook co-star Rachel McAdams, and before that dated Sandra Bullock.

Prior to her relationship with Ryan Eva dated George Augusto from 2002 until 2010.
