“As far as getting work done,” she added, “I’ll do that whenever I please. But no, that’s not the reason. The reason is I personally cannot juggle family and social media. So -big shocker -I choose family. Lotsa love to you out there.”
This isn’t the first time Eva has opened up about trying to be more present with her two daughters, Esmeralda, 6, and Amada, 4, who she shares with longtime partner, Ryan Gosling. (And let’s be real, if that was our family, we’d put the phone down, too.)
“I haven’t posted lately because my little one told me I was on the phone too much,” she shared on Instagram on Jan. 23. “I could tell she was taking it personally. And she’s a kid, of course she’d take it personally. They take things personally unless we go out of our way to make it clear to them it’s not personal.”
“So we had good talk,” she continued, “I apologized and I promised her I’d be mindful. I realized that just because I’m always home with them doesn’t mean I’m always present.”
Back in October, Eva explained just how much her life has changed for the better—both by falling in love with the La La Land actor and becoming a mother.
“I never wanted babies before, until I fell in love with Ryan,” she shared at the time, “and then it just kind of worked out to where I was 40 and having my first baby and then I think I was 42 with my second one, so it worked out in that way that I had a career and then I changed my focus to my family.”
