Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes’ kids speak Spanglish
Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes’ daughters are speaking “Spanglish”.
The couple have Esmeralda, four, and Amada, three, together, and although they’re raising them to speak both English and Spanish to honour Eva’s native language, they’ve been running into difficulties because the two tots now merge the two languages together.
Eva said: “Well the Spanish in my home ... I’m Cuban and we’re trying to teach the kids Spanish, and it’s harder than I thought. I speak Spanglish and that’s what they’re picking up. So it’s adorable but it’s technically not a language. It’s Spanglish.
“So our little girl will be like, ‘Mommy, my boca (mouth) hurts because I think something got stuck in my diente (tooth).’ It’s so cute but that is not really gonna go great out there.”
