In her recent interview with The Talk, she spoken about her willingness to pass on her Cuban culture to her daughters. She said –

“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,”

“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 going to go great out there.”

She has cutely revealed that how it is difficult to integrate another language and the way of life into her kids’ lives for both celebrities.

Mendes also gushed about her husband Gosling and how failing in love with him changed the way she think about having children. She said –

“It took a minute. But yeah, I was just never one of those women who really wanted children and then I fell in love with Ryan,” she said. “Then, I was like, ‘Oh, I get it, I don’t want children, I want your children. I want your babies.’”
