Ryan Gosling is currently on a hiatus from acting, which means he’s been spotted around Hollywood a whole lot less. During that time to himself, reports have it that he’s grown much closer to his longtime girlfriend Eva Mendes.
In fact, ShowBizSpy says the couple has grown so close that they’re already ready for marriage. Why the rush? Mendes, who turned 39 in March, allegedly wants to get a ring on it by the time she hits the big 4-0.
“Eva told Ryan that she wants to be engaged by the time she’s 40,” a source says. “But Ryan was already planning a proposal. He’s been in secret talks with ring designer Neil Lane.”
Gosling, 32, and Mendes first started dating in September 2011. If this rumor is true, this would be a first marriage for both of them. However, we’re still a bit skeptical that Mendes is hoping for a proposal any time soon. After all, she previously said, “I feel like the institution of marriage is a very archaic kinda thing. I don’t think it fits in my world today.”
