Eva Mendes’ wrist tattoo may have given all of us a clue into her very private, personal life.
The actress and entrepreneur, 48, has been famously private when it comes to her 11-year-long relationship with actor Ryan Gosling, 42. But, a new Instagram post suggests she’s more comfortable giving a glimpse inside her relationship.
In a photo shared on Tuesday, Mendes is seen covering her face with her wrist, inked with the words “de Gosling.”
In Hispanic culture, the use of “de” or “of” unifies the woman’s last name with her husband’s after marriage, meaning the star’s tattoo could be indicative of a “Mrs Gosling” title.
This isn’t the first time fans have had a glimpse at Mendes’ ink.
In an Instagram photo shared in September, she subtly displayed the sentimental tattoo while showing off a field of flowers, and her followers were quick to gush over the meaning of the art with many referring to Gosling as Mendes’ husband.
Mendes and Gosling met on the set of The Place Beyond the Pines in 2011, in which they played a couple with an infant son.
Their on-screen chemistry became real-life love when, shortly after filming wrapped, the two were spotted getting cozy at Disneyland and sharing a romantic kiss in Paris.
In September 2016, Us Weekly reported that the two secretly tied the knot, however, sources later confirmed with PEOPLE that the couple did not wed.
Mendes and Gosling have shared tidbits about their home life with daughters Esmeralda Amada, 8, and Amada Lee, 6 — whom they welcomed in 2014 and 2016 respectively.
While speaking with PEOPLE in August about her new partnership with Skura Style, for which she’s the brand ambassador and co-owner, Mendes said “my man and my kids” are whom she calls home.
she sweetly shared.
“Wherever they are, that’s just what it is”
If they are married, congrats!
