Eva Mendes has spoken of her family life Down Under as she joins her husband Ryan Gosling in Sydney while he films his new movie The Fall Guy.
The Hollywood actress, 48, revealed on Wednesday their young daughters start their home-schooling every day with a Welcome to Country.
‘I don’t do the home schooling myself because I’ve tried that and it’s not one of my strengths,’ the Ghost Rider star told The Daily Telegraph.

‘We travel a lot and one of my strong beliefs is that you try to always keep a family together, no matter what you’re doing. Especially when the children are small.
‘We’re lucky enough to have someone we travel with that can continue their education at this point, and what we do is we try to incorporate the city we’re in as much as possible.’
An Acknowledgement of Country is a ritual that takes place before some formal gatherings in Australia in which a speaker pays respect to the traditional custodians of the land.
An alternative form of this is a Welcome to Country, which is when the speaker is a local Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander of significance.

She added that her children, Esmeralda, eight, and Amada, six, started picking up ‘Aussie twangs’ in the last month and a half they’ve been living in Australia.
Eva said her favourite thing about Sydney is how family-friendly the CBD is, with ‘epic’ parks being her top destination to visit on a good day.
The actress has been spotted visiting an outdoor playground in Sydney’s Rose Bay on a number of occasions.
Elsewhere in the interview, Eva revealed her family are all ‘huge Bluey fans’ and she was so excited to be offered a guest voice role on the ABC children’s series.

The couple, who have been together for over a decade, are still madly in love.
