Recently, Eva Mendes, known for her roles in “The Place Beyond the Pines” and “Hitch,” shared her personal and rewarding perspective on late motherhood. At 50, she feels more prepared than ever to embrace motherhood, emphasizing how maturity has endowed her with the patience and wisdom required for this pivotal role. 

Reflecting on societal perceptions, Mendes debunked stereotypes surrounding late motherhood, asserting that age has only enhanced her readiness for parenting.  

“I don’t succumb to societal pressure. Whatever I want to do, I do,” Mendes told PEOPLE in an exclusive interview.  

She dismissed concerns about her energy levels during pregnancy at 40 and 42, attributing her readiness to her evolved mindset and lifestyle. Mendes noted how her youth was characterized by chaos and freedom, making her current stage of life optimal for motherhood. 

The decision to pause her acting career has provided Mendes with invaluable wisdom for nurturing her daughters, Esmeralda Amada and Amada Lee, whom she shares with partner Ryan Gosling. Gosling, in turn, expressed gratitude for Mendes’ unwavering support both personally and professionally, acknowledging her instrumental role in their family life. 

Eva Mendes Is the Decision Maker and Queen at Home

Gosling credited Mendes as his acting coach, praising her impact on his career and their family dynamics. He has previously stated how indispensable her role is in their shared parenting responsibilities, underscoring their commitment to prioritizing family life over professional pursuits. 

Respecting her daughters’ privacy, Mendes maintains a strict policy against sharing their images on social media without their consent. While she openly discusses motherhood, Mendes prioritizes protecting her children’s privacy. She wants to protect them from the craziness of Hollywood and the comments that come with it. It’s evident she’s thought about every side of it.  

Mendes is proof that motherhood can happen at any time. But we can’t forget that everyone’s experience is different. Regardless, we are glad she’s enjoying motherhood at 50.
