Eva Mendes is really starting to understand what is means to be a mother!
The actress recently opened up to Extra's AJ Calloway, where she revealed how being a mother has made her appreciate her own mom more and how she keeps boyfriend Ryan Gosling happy.
"Now I understand so much, my mother's never gotten more 'I love you so much mommy' texts, I mean, randomly… ya, I get it now," the "Hitch" star confessed about parenting.
While Mendes and Gosling welcomed their first child together, Esmeralda, last September, the new parents are only starting to get used to the sleep schedule of their 6-month-old baby.
"But you never know, right, something random can happen and she's just suddenly not sleeping through the night and you're like, wait, I thought we were sleeping through the night, what's up?!," she joked. "Why does it always happen at three or four in the morning?!"
And when it comes to keeping her very sexy boyfriend happy, the "Place Beyond The Pines" star said she has one extremely important rule in their relationship.
"You can't do sweatpants… ladies, number one cause of divorce in America, sweatpants, no!," the 41-year-old exclaimed.
