Ryan Gosling’s relationship with Eva Mendes is cracking under the pressures of new parenthood it’s been rumoured.
The 34-year-old actor and his girlfriend are believed to have started living separate lives, with Eva reportedly pushing him away because she’s been left struggling at home with their daughter Esmeralda – despite Ryan’s best efforts to support her.
Which is pretty depressing seen as it’s coming up to Esmeralda’s first Christmas – in fact it’s soul-shaterringly depressing when you think about it.
The A-list couple made their home with Esmeralda in Los Angeles, but recently the Drive star has had to spend increasing amounts of time away on location in georgia (on the other side of the country) where he’s filming his next movie The Nice Guys.
And his prolonged absence has put so much strain on their relationship that apparently the two of them are “barely talking”.
Speaking to OK! an inside source said of Ryan and Eva’s problems: “It’s more than just run-of-the-mill stress that comes with having a newborn. They’re barely talking.
“Eva has pushed him away.”
But in true Hollywood style the breakdown of this relationship is a bit more extravagant than what the rest of us might experience.
Eva is said to be fast becoming a recluse and has refused to fly out with Esmeralda to see Ryan on set, with the insider revealing: “Instead of coming home every night to them, he’s jetting back and forth just so he can see his daughter.”
Eva has only been seen once since the birth of their daughter in November, and it’s been claimed that Ryan is worried that she’s turning into a hermit – although she might just be busy seeing as she refused to hire a nanny to help share the workload a newborn creates.
“’The last time Ryan was in LA, he told her that she and Esmeralda needed to get outside for some fresh air, but she just wouldn’t listen,” The source divulged.
Which if true is very worrying.
And if the two of them do split things could get messy as Eva “believes full custody is warranted” to her because Ryan has been absent since their daughter’s birth.
Some might be excited at the prospect of a single RyGo on the loose again, but we just hope these rumours aren’t true for that little girl’s sake, and frankly Eva and Ryan are (or possibly were) the perfect couple!
