Ryan Gosling is a very private guy. Not only is he rarely seen out in public with his partner, Eva Mendes, he rarely even talks abut her or his two daughters, Esmeralda and Amada.
During an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live Tuesday night, Ryan broke that rule and shared a story about his youngest daughter, Amada. Ryan and his family traveled to New York recently for his gig hosting Saturday Night Live, and Amada's first trip to the city was definitely a memorable one.
“My youngest daughter is a year and a half, and it was her first time in New York,” he said. “I brought her to the window in the morning and I said, ‘Sweetheart, welcome to New York!’ and two cars went, ‘SMASH.’”
That's not all though. Things got...animated from there.
“Smoke started pouring out of the cars and these two guys got out and I won’t repeat the hand gestures for you, but I quickly covered her eyes and ran away from the window.”
Ryan Gosling: Good actor, better dad.
