Ryan Gosling gave a sweet shout out to his girlfriend Eva Mendes and their 14-month-old daughter Esmeralda as he wrapped up his hosting debut on U.S. comedy show Saturday Night Live this weekend (05Dec15). After thanking the cast and crew for making him feel welcome on the show, during which he frequently struggled to keep a straight face, the typically-private star added, "Eva and Esme, I love you." The actor has been dating his The Place Beyond The Pines co-star since 2011.
