Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling are certainly taking things a little further with their fledgling relationship - with the actress meeting the Golden Globe nominated actor's mom in Manhattan at the weekend.
After spending some quality time with each other on New Year's Day, Gosling and his mother Donna met up with Mendes at the Amc movie theatre in uptown Manhattan. It was the first time the actress had met Ryan's mother, but a source told People magazine that everything ran smoothly, saying, "They all hung out and went to the movies together.Ryan and Eva seemed very happy". Gosling, who has risen to become one of the biggest movie stars in the world, began dating Mendes in September. The pair appeared very much in love while jetting to meet with Gosling's mother on Friday. One onlooker at Los Angeles International Airport said, "They kept kissing and hugging while they waited to board their flight.Eva looked gorgeous and kept smiling". On New Year's Eve the pair were again spotted leaving Manhattan's Bowery Hotel for a lavish party in the city. One eyewitness said, "While they waited for a cab outside the hotel, they kept kissing.They both looked very happy".
Gosling, who recently lost out on People Magazine's World's Sexiest Man prize to Bradley Cooper, scored a Golden Globe nomination for his role in political drama The Ides of March. He is expected to land a nod for this year's Academy Awards for the same movie.
