Reports suggest that Hollywood heartthrob Ryan Gosling secretly tied the knot with his girlfriend of five years Eva Mendes.

According to a US Weekly report, the couple tied the knot secretly earlier this year in an ultra-private ceremony. Family and a group of friends attended gosling and Mendes secret marriage. "Eva and Ryan have always felt like a married couple," a source close to Mendes revealed to US Weekly. "They are infatuated with each other."

However, a source close to TMZ said that the couple did not tie the knot in a private ceremony this year. According to People, the reports that "the notoriously private couple tied the knot earlier this year are untrue."

Gosling, who shot to fame in The Notebook, and Mendes met while shooting for the thriller drama The Place Beyond The Pines in 2011. The Canadian actor and Mendes have two daughters Esmeralda, 2, and Amada, 4 months old.

Talking about his girlfriend Mendes and his daughters, he said that he teaches them to respect their mother.

"I take my little girl to the park, and we always write her name in chalk, and some kid has been erasing her name and writing their name over it," he said in May when he appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

"And this kid has access to an unfair amount of chalk. My little girl doesn't care; she's like, 'Well, let's just chalk anywhere else.' And I'm like, 'No! They're disrespecting your mother because she gave you this name, and they're erasing it. So the only way to really get back at them is to erase their name. And not disrespect their mother, but definitely put her on notice.'"
