The pair—who met on the set of 2012's The Place Beyond the Pines—have two beautiful daughters together (opens in new tab) (Esmeralda and Amada), and in the rare moments when they do open up about their relationship, it's clear that they are crazy in love.

But one place Mendes and Gosling almost never make their love known is on the red carpet. In fact, since becoming a mom, Mendes has scaled back big time on public appearances—even when it comes to events Gosling attends. In a new interview with Shape (opens in new tab), she explains why.

"What people don't know about me is that I love being home," she says. "Instead of hitting the red carpet, I'd rather be with our girls."

There you have it: Turns out the secret behind Eva Mendes' lack of red carpet appearances is that she's a homebody. She's officially never been more relatable.
