Ryan Gosling shares two daughters with partner Eva Mendes.

“It hasn’t been easy for her to be the primary parent as Ryan pursues so many acting roles,” explained the source. “She adores being a mother and supporting Ryan, but that doesn’t mean it’s not difficult at times.”

“Eva has given up a lot to support Ryan and be a hands-on mother to their two daughters,” the source added of the pair's kiddos, Esmeralda Amada and Amada Lee. “Ryan goes to set and enjoys his work and interacts with his colleagues, while she’s sitting home caring for their kids with no other social life.”

“From the beginning, Ryan decided he and Eva would not step out together publicly,” said an insider. “It may not seem obvious, but he’s very dominant and dictates how they live their public life. He insists on their ultra-private image, and from the beginning he was the one who decided that they would not step out together."
