Oh, Ryan Gosling, I need you now*.
But really, how great is Ryan Gosling in this video? Obviously he’s great all the time, but something about this just touches my heart in extraordinary ways. Probably it’s the “Achy Breaky Heart” bit. And the video of him dancing hilariously. And his equally hilarious denim shirt. And the hope that Ryan still has that passion for singing and dancing inside himself, even after all these years.
*My guinea pig died last night. I tell you guys a lot of personal things, and I know some of you aren’t into that, but I feel upset and detached, and I didn’t want you to think some evil witch stole my soul or anything. I figure a couple of you might actively worry about that.

Allegedly, guys. Ryan Gosling is allegedly shopping for an engagement ring. It’s not real, ok? We can read this story and then climb back into our fantasy world, but it’s not real. It just can’t be. Shhhhh.
From the National Enquirer via Celebitchy:
Wedding bells are finally set to ring for Eva Mendes after Ryan Gosling won a hard-fought campaign to get the marriage-shy sexpot to settle down and start a family. A year into their romance, Ryan has begun shopping for an engagement ring for his 38-year-old lady love, who has long insisted she’s not the marrying kind, say insiders.
“Ryan is head over heels in love with Eva, and he wants to have a life with her – including children,” divulged a friend. But Eva had always wanted to maintain her independence, until she began to hear her biological clock ticking. She’s long yearned to start a family, and even investigated adoption two years ago, disclosed an insider.
“Ryan wants children too, but also believes in marriage and youngsters growing up knowing mommy and daddy are committed to each other,” said the insider.
“It’s something Eva has balked at in the past, but Ryan has a charming way of helping her see a different kind of future. She’s getting on board with the idea of marriage.”
Gosling is “now confident that when he pops the question, Eva will say yes,” added the friend. “They are likely to announce their engagement in October, followed by a summer wedding.”
See, this is from the Enquirer, and it’s one of those stories from the tabloids that are absolutely false and that will never, ever be true. I don’t care how many rumors we hear about these two settling down or how many pictures we see of Eva Mendes looking maybe a little pregnant, it’s just not true.
It’s just … I watched The Notebook again last week, you guys. I watched The Notebook and I remembered why everyone fell in love with Ryan Gosling in the first place and I remembered why he should be with Rachel McAdams forever and I just can’t. I just can’t with all this Eva Mendes nonsense. I can’t.

So, we haven’t had a “Your Daily Gosling” in awhile, primarily because Ryan‘s still with Eva Mendes, who may or may not be in the early stages of pregnancy, and I think people* are getting pretty sick of seeing Ryan and Eva hanging all over one another in public. And I get it. Bo-ring.
But these pictures are from the red carpet event for Ryan and Eva’s movie, The Place Beyond the Pines, where Ryan plays a white trash-kind of guy who fathers a baby with a white trash-kind of girl, who is played by Eva. Ryan also rides motorcycles and has Johnny Depp-Cry Baby tattoos.
Also, Eva Mendes is definitely tweaking her face. But I guess that’s what those who have insecurity issues to begin with do when they’re dating someone almost a decade their junior and trying to pass themselves off as super-special marriage and mother material.
Ryan just looks so, so happy, doesn’t he?
*It’s me, guys. It’s all me.

If we’re being completely honest, it’s been a hot minute since I’ve been all about Ryan Gosling. Maybe it’s Eva Mendes, maybe it’s because he hasn’t saved anyone’s life in a while, but I don’t know, I just haven’t been feeling it lately.
That’s all changing though, because Ryan Gosling wrote a script called Catch A Monster, he’s directing the movie, and he cast Christina Hendricks in the leading role, so he’s officially a dreamboat again.
Here’s a brief summary of the film:
Catch a Monster weaves elements of fantasy noir with suspense to create a modern fairy tale set against the surreal dreamscape of a vanishing city. Hendricks (Mad Men) would play Billy, a single mother of two who is swept into a macabre underworld, while her teenage son discovers a secret road leading to a underwater town.
They’re shopping the movie around at the Toronto International Film Festival, and they’re not even going to work on it until next spring, but I think I’m going to go ahead and start working on my letter to Ryan Gosling thanking him for making my new favorite movie. Maybe I just have Ryan Gosling-shaped stars in my eyes, but this sounds absolutely wonderful, right?

Can I get a collective “ugh,” please?
From Us Weekly:
Looks like Ryan Gosling isn’t going to be a young, free and single star for much longer as girlfriend of just a year, Eva Mendes is reportedly planning to propose to him.
The 37 year-old is reportedly ready to settle down and rather than waiting for the ‘Drive’ stud to propose to her she is taking the reins in the romance and suggesting to him that they get hitched.
A source told Us Weekly: “She starting to think about marriage and kids. She loves serious relationships, and she wants all of that.”
Luckily she has already got his mother, Donna on side so if she wants permission we think the ‘Hitch’ star might just get it. “Eva hit it off with Donna immediately,” the close friend explained. Now they text and email all the time!”
While Eva supposedly doesn’t believe in marriage, traditional Ryan is said to want to tie the knot before having children and with her biological clock ticking, the actress is probably feeling the pressure to get a move on.
According to Showbizspy.com an insider said: “Ryan believes in marital commitment before children, but Eva doesn’t support the institution of marriage. She’s very outspoken about it.”
“She considering caving and actually proposing to Ryan on their one-year anniversary in September.”
Now, don’t get me wrong—I think it’s perfectly acceptable for a woman to propose to a man, absolutely. But Eva Mendes? Proposing to Ryan Gosling? Color me biased, but this should just not happen. Like, if he was so into her, he probably would have popped the question by now, am I right? He seems like the type to not want to rush anything that’s important to him, especially when it comes to deciding the fate of a relationship. Does Eva really want to have this kind of guilt hanging over her head for the rest of her life if she does propose and he does accept (out of sheer fear of not wanting to hurt her feelings)? I know I sure wouldn’t.
Git up and git gone with your bad self, Eva.

Because it sure looks like someone’s hiding something to me. That or, you know, pretending to hide something so that people stop thinking about Robert Pattinson‘s availability and focusing on how much they burn over the fact that Ryan Gosling is still having sex with Eva Mendes on the regular.
Yes, it’s the obligatory “Is Eva Mendes pregnant?” story that pretty much everyone is running with, but guys, I have this feeling that it … I don’t even know if I can say it. I have this feeling that … well, that it might actually be true. I don’t know why, and I could, of course, be entirely wrong, but I don’t think it’s so much of a stretch to say that Eva Mendes is probably carrying the offspring of Ryan Gosling in her womb. And I just can’t even.
Here’s some insight from our friends at Cele|bitchy, who also have some curious-looking photos from earlier in the week:
… We discussed some other photos of Eva yesterday in which Eva seemed to be shielding her torso from paparazzi inspection. And now in these photos, Eva is wearing a very loose dress. Is she trying to tell us something? Something of the baby bump variety? Eh. I thought for a moment that she looked kind of pregnant from behind yesterday (go here to see those photos), but I really can’t tell in these pics. Pregnancy might explain why she and Ryan dropped off the radar for a little bit. And I could totally see an “unplanned” pregnancy for Ryan and Eva, quite honestly.
I mean, check her out. She’s looking a little meatier in the face these days (a common pregnancy side-effect), she’s shielding her midsection with a bag, and Cele|bitchy’s right—Eva and Ryan have kind of dropped off the radar for awhile, so it’s all got to mean something, you know?
I’m giving it maybe another couple of weeks before I think we’ll know for sure. Eva could just be complacent, thinking that she’s got Ryan hooked one way or the other and that she doesn’t need to hit the gym every single day in order to look good, or, it could be the *other* thing. The other *pregnancy* thing. And my oh my if it is.
