“I would like to try to thank one person properly and say while I was singing and dancing and playing piano and having one of the best experiences I’ve ever had on a film, my lady was raising our daughter, pregnant with our second, and trying to help her brother fight his battle with cancer,” Gosling said during his acceptance speech at the 2017 Golden Globes.

“If she hadn’t have taken all that on so that I could have this experience, it would surely be someone else up here other than me today,” the actor continued. “So sweetheart, thank you. To my daughters Amada and Esmeralda, I love you.”
