Eva Mendes On Motherhood And Finding Her Path [Trending!]

Actress Eva Mendes reflects on her decision to embrace motherhood later in life, prioritizing her family over the demands of a flourishing acting career. In an interview with PEOPLE, Mendes, 50, discusses the fulfillment she finds in raising her daughters, Esmeralda Amada, 9, and Amada Lee, 8, with partner Ryan Gosling.

Mendes acknowledges that having children in her 20s wouldn’t have aligned with her lifestyle at the time. “I could not have raised kids in any other era of my life but now, for sure,” she says. This self-awareness led her to wait until she felt prepared for the responsibility and joy of parenthood.

Looking back, Mendes highlights the societal pressure she faced for having children at an older age. “It was a big deal for people when I was pregnant,” she recalls. However, she dismisses these notions, emphasizing, “Your career comes and goes, but kids, yeah, that was easy for me.”

Mendes describes her decision to step back from acting as one of clarity, not pressure. “They’re just formative years,” she says. “I wanted to be there for all of it.” This dedication extends beyond simply being present. Motherhood has become a source of personal growth for Mendes. “It all matters when you have two little people watching you all day long,” she reflects. “It’s frightening but it’s good because it makes me try to be a better person every day.”

Mendes’ commitment to her family extends to protecting their privacy. She has a “clear boundary” when it comes to sharing her daughters’ lives on social media. “I won’t post pictures of our daily life,” she states. “Since my children are still so little and don’t understand what posting their image really means, I don’t have their consent. And I won’t post their image until they’re old enough to give me consent.”

Eva Mendes’ story highlights the importance of following one’s own path, embracing motherhood on her own terms, and prioritizing what matters most in life.
