At the 2017 Golden Globes, the 36-year-old briefly mentioned his partner during his acceptance speech, thanking her for supporting his role in "While I was singing and dancing and playing piano," he said, "My lady was raising our daughter, pregnant with our second and trying to help her brother with his battle with cancer." Gosling then dedicated the award to Juan Carlos Mendes, who died of cancer in 2016.
It was a moving acknowledgement made all the more significant because the couple is so private.
