Eva Mendes has revealed she doesn’t employ a nanny to look after her daughter Esmeralda and prefers to be a “hands-on” mother.
The 41-year-old actress has eight-month-old daughter Esmeralda with boyfriend Ryan Gosling and insists she doesn’t get much external help when it comes to juggling her career and motherhood.
“I’m a very hands-on mom. I don’t have a nanny. No matter how tired I am, I just do it,” she said.
The brunette beauty who is the new face of Estee Lauder’s anti-aging skin care line New Dimension gets up very early to make sure she has time for her ‘ritualistic” beauty routine while her baby sleeps.
“Well sometimes I do it at 4am. I’m no longer in control of my schedule, and I try to take advantage of the time when she’s sleeping. I love to be diligent about my routine every day, especially with my skin. I travel so much that I think it helps keep me grounded. I’m a new mom and I’m sleep-deprived, so my eyes are my main focus,” she explained.
Meanwhile, ‘Hitch’ star Eva says she would never rule out plastic surgery.
“I don’t judge. You know, 10 or 20 years from now, who knows what I think will be necessary for me? It’s like, whatever it takes to make yourself feel good, I’m all for it,” she added.
