On a recent Instagram post, a fan expressed concern on how Eva Mendes posts about her home life, specifically on how it seems like she does all the work while husband Ryan Gosling does nada. This came after Eva posted about working on three hours sleep to decorate the house for her daughter's birthday.
The fan said in part:
"Seems that the mom are the only ones that are busy with the kids...I mean sometime you seems a struggle single mother, and we know that you have a man, but the way you write, I mean, seems that your husband let the hard job to you and he doesn’t help you."
The comment came after a male fan commented that they felt Eva ignored the good dads out there to focus only on moms. Eva responded with her usual class, saying just because she doesn't mention Ryan doesn't mean he's not there helping:
hi! Thanks for your honest comment. So here’s my very honest answer ...I love women. I’m a girls girl. I love connecting to women. That’s mainly why I have this page. So when I say I’m a “tired mama” and want to connect to other “tired mamas” it’s not about excluding the fathers or other caregivers that do so much. It’s just me connecting to other women but in no way does it de-value what papas do.
And why I don’t talk about Ryan and all the wonderful things he does as a father, is because I keep that part private. I don’t want to involve him or how he parents because I don’t feel comfortable crossing that boundary that I have set for myself. I feel it’s best that I continue to disclose what I’m comfortable with but not Involve him or my kids too much. It’s not about being cagey or weird , it’s just about staying private in a public space. Does that make sense? Hope so. Because this is my honest answer and I really do love connecting to you women. Happy to explain further. Sending so much love ❤️
So Ryan Gosling ain't a weekend dad and Eva continues to have to explain to people that she doesn't want to share her private life on social media.
That is it for this week in Eva Mendes' delightful Instagram follies!
