Eva Mendes’ Heartfelt Preparation for Ryan Gosling’s: The 96th Academy Awards were a huge deal, and Ryan Gosling’s closest circle was there to cheer him on before his highly anticipated “I’m Just Ken” performance.

In an interview with People magazine, the famous actor said that his girlfriend Eva Mendes and their two kids, Esmeralda, 9, and Amada, 7, helped out with the dress rehearsal for the Oscar performance.

“It was wonderful,” Gosling said, his joy very visible. Their presence in the front row during the dress rehearsal the day before was just delightful.

In considering their suggestions, he elaborated, saying, “They provided insightful advice and criticism, all of which were really useful.” Their enthusiasm for Barbie and disinterest in Ken piqued my interest in this part, and their participation means the world to me. Their presence at the end of this voyage was absolutely unforgettable.

Gosling, who plays Barbie’s male counterpart, wore a vibrant bright pink suit and trendy sunglasses as he performed the film’s infectious song, “I’m Just Ken.”

After Gosling’s outstanding performance, Mendes took to Instagram to brag about him. She posted a short video from his dressing room before the event and captioned it, “Always supporting my man.”

After the show, Mendes posted another photo in which she wore Ryan Gosling’s signature hot pink jacket, sunglasses, and black cowboy hat—all in an effort to commemorate the occasion. “You delivered Ken to the Academy Awards, RG,” she captioned her photo. I need to get the kids tucked up now.

Gosling, Mandi, his mother Donna, and stepfather Valerio Attanasio all walked the red carpet together at the Oscars, while Mendes stayed home.

Going forward, Mendes remained Gosling’s biggest supporter, particularly after he was nominated for Best Supporting Actor for his work in “Barbie,” even if he didn’t win.

She posted an Instagram video of Martin Scorsese’s daughter Francesca (who directed “Killers of the Flower Moon”) gushing over Ryan Gosling’s performance at the ceremony.

Replying, Mendes wrote, “[I’m] loving this incredible moment” in an Instagram Story to convey her excitement. That is just incredible!

(Please be informed that the name of Amada Gosling was misspelled in an earlier version of this story; the spelling has since been fixed.)
