Ryan Gosling gave a rare glimpse into his life with Eva Mendes and their two daughters, Esmeralda and Amada Lee, during his appearance on the special Game Night edition of Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Friday.
According to reports on Entertainment Tonight, when Jimmy Kimmel asked Gosling if he had been watching the NBA Finals, the 37-year-old First Man star jokingly replied that his little girls wouldn’t let him watch anything except the cartoon Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood. “I have a two-year-old and a three-and-half-year-old, so, let’s be honest, I’m not watching anything that doesn’t have a talking tiger in it.”
Gosling, who stopped by to promote the Neil Armstrong biopic, also went into detail about how he suffered a minor accident while doing some physical training that left Mendes concerned. “They built this multi-axis trainer, which is something NASA designed just to help the astronauts prepare for the worst-case scenarios in space.” The La La Land star then explained how Mendes thought that he might have ‘brain damage’. “One night I called Eva, and I was just hell-bent on this idea that there were people in donut stores all around the world that were trying to charm their way into getting free donuts,” he shared. “She was so patient and listening. And then she said, ‘I’ve been saying you have brain damage as a joke, but I think you might have brain damage. I think you should go to the hospital’.” He eventually sought medical attention and found out he suffered a minor concussion.
