Eva Mendes is getting real about being a working mother.
The 44 year old mother of two, opened up about work-life balance during an interview with “Good Morning America”, “I have a 2-year-old and a 4-year-old now,” the actress said of her daughters, Esmeralda and Amada, that she shares with Ryan Gosling. “Sometimes it’s just a challenge to get dressed, so I brought in the tees.”
Mendes, who is getting ready to release her new fall collection that’s apart of her clothing line at New York & Company, says she struggles with spending time away from her kids.
“I just struggle like every other working mother,” she said. “It’s so hard, and I haven’t figured out the balance at all.”
Mendes added, “Leaving them is hard.”
But, the “Place Beyond The Pines” actress admitted that her youngest doesn’t like the idea of her leaving, “Our older one … she knows I’m coming back,” she explained.”She has ‘mamitis.’ Cubans say … like, it’s ‘momitis,’ like, when she wants to just be with mama.”
