Ryan Gosling: My family make me a 'better man'

Ryan Gosling's family make him a "better man".

The 'Crazy, Stupid, Love' star credits his long-term partner Eva Mendes, their two-year-old daughter Esmerelda and their four-month-old daughter Amada for picking him up when he's down.

Speaking to Us Weekly magazine at the Toronto International Film Festival, he said: "All of them are doing amazing. I'm a lucky man - they really make me better."

And the 35-year-old actor previously revealed he is having the "happiest time" of his life at the moment.

He said: "They're angels. It's the happiest time in my life."

Meanwhile, Eva, 42, recently revealed her eldest daughter is her "moral compass."

She said: "I love being an example to somebody. If I'm even like, 'Oh, what should I wear? Or, should I do this project?' All I have to think about is my daughter and her face and I know the answer immediately. I guess she's my moral compass in a way. It's just beautiful to be an example for her.

The couple don't rely on a nanny to raise their children and split the parental duties equally between mother and father.

Eva added: "I mean, that's a given these days! I don't think that's a plus anymore. It better not be fathers out there."
