Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes are a notoriously private couple, so fan are relishing the insight he just gave into their family life.

After meeting on the set of The Place Beyond the Pines in 2011, the pair welcomed their first daughter, Esmeralda Amada Gosling, in 2014, and their second, Amada Lee Gosling, in 2016.

Now, the actor has opened up about how the family of four found lockdown, and the unique way they kept their seven and five year old children occupied. "Our kids are young, so it was a tough time for them to be separated from other kids and not being able to see family and whatnot," the 40-year-old told GQ.

"We did our best to entertain them. I think Eva and I did more acting in quarantine than we have in our whole careers."

Do you think they were doing the La La Land dances around their living rooms? Or maybe Fast and Furious impressions? Imagine!

Earlier this year, Eva opened up on the Nova 96.9's Fitzy & Wippa radio show about how she wasn't keen on having children before meeting her husband.

When the interviewer asked if she is ready to return to acting following a six-year break, she said: "I am now that [my kids are] getting a bit older, but I really feel like I never want to send the wrong message to young women out there. It's not an either/or situation."

She continued, "I was lucky enough to work my bum off for 20 years. I never wanted babies before until I fell in love with Ryan, and it kind of worked out to where I was 40 and having my first baby. I think I was 42 for the second one, so it worked out in that way that I had a career and then I change my focus to my family."
