    Eva Mendes Talked About Being In "Full On Mom Mode" During The Coronavirus Pandemic

    "[My kids] need me now more than ever.”

    Eva Mendes is super private about her and Ryan Gosling's family life, but the actor has gotten increasingly candid about it during the pandemic.

    In a Feb. 15 post on Instagram, Mendes talked about how "challenging" it is to raise kids during this time and how she's had to give her children her "full-on attention."

    “It’s challenging for sure, but they need me now more than ever,” Mendes wrote. “If you find yourself in a similar situation, here’s a list of parenting pages that are getting me through so [I] thought I’d share.”

    Mendes listed 10 great Instagram accounts for parents, including Big Little Feelings, The Mom Psychologist, and Babies and Brains.

    She also said she's been in “full-on mom mode" in quarantine.

    “I’ve graduated from my man’s sweats to a robe,” Mendes wrote. “All day. File under: Stopped caring for now.”

    Mendes shares two daughters, Esmeralda and Amada, with her partner, Ryan Gosling, and in early February, she said she helps her kids feel "empowered" by allowing them to “call [her] out” on anything they want.

    "I haven’t posted lately because my little one told me I was on the phone too much," she said about why she's stepped away from Instagram for a while.

    Mendes is doing right by her kids, and even though she's been having some "challenging" times in quarantine, she's still doing the best she can.
