Eva Mendes juggles a lot in her life. She’s fresh off her new New York & Company spring launch and balances life as an actress, businesswoman and mother to two daughters, Esmeralda and Amada, who she shares with longtime partner, Ryan Gosling. Recently, Mendes gushed about Gosling to Women’s Health, “Then Ryan Gosling happened.” Adding, “I mean, falling in love with him. Then it made sense for me to have…not kids, but his kids. It was very specific to him.”
But when Mendes isn’t designing or acting, and she’s at home with the kids, her loungewear look is one we can all relate to. “It would be a T-shirt and my man's sweatpants. So that's kind of my go-to,” Mendes told Yahoo Lifestyle. In one occasion, Mendes recalled getting “snapped by very rude paparazzis one day, a few months ago. Like fresh out of bed.”
“I was outside talking to a neighbor and you can see I'm wearing... one of my New York and Company T-shirts... and my man’s sweatpants—that's pretty much my look,” she explains. Although Mendes doesn’t confirm by name who her “man” is during the interview, it’s pretty safe to say she’s referring to her longtime love, Gosling.
Unfortunately, not all of us can lounge around in Gosling’s sweatpants, but there are still plenty of options that might be just as soft and cuddly. Keep scrolling to shop our top picks.
