Eva Mendes takes her daughter, eight, to the park in Sydney’s Rose Bay after jetting to Australia with her husband Ryan Gosling

Hollywood star Eva Mendes, 48, has been spotted taking daughter to a park in Sydney’s eastern suburb of Rose Bay.

The actress, who is currently in Australia with her husband Ryan Gosling, was spotted at a popular outdoor playground with her lookalike daughter Esmeralda, eight, last week. 

Eva also enjoyed an action-packed day herself, as she was spotted sitting on a kids’ climbing gym in the middle of the playground.

Posting to Instagram at the time, the brunette shared a short video of herself sitting in-between the ropes pondering her love-hate relationship with playgrounds. 

‘Can’t say Park Time with my kids is my favourite. Probably because I worry a lot. (That’s a whole other post),’ she wrote.

‘But when I give in and play with them -it ends up being some of the best memories we create. Then add to that the life lessons learned on the playground -for them and for me. Invaluable.’

Eva kept it low-key wearing a tan rain jacket along with green polka dot pants and a pair of slip-on sandals. 

Meanwhile, an onlooker told The Sunday Telegraph that Eva chatted politely to locals, proving exactly why she’s regarded as one of the nicest women in Hollywood. 

The star is Down Under as part of a charity promotion for McHappy Day, while her husband Ryan is filming The Fall Guy.

The Fall Guy is expected to shoot in Sydney and NSW and will inject $244 million into the Australian economy. 

Eva was announced as McHappy Day National Ambassador just days ago. 

‘McHappy Day is a wonderful way for Aussies to support RMHC and families of seriously ill and injured children,’ Eva said.

Eva was previously a national ambassador in 2020 but in a virtual capacity since border controls meant she couldn’t visit Down Under.  

Eva will make an appearance at McHappy Day on November 19.

McHappy Day is a fund-raiser that provides emergency care and accommodation nearby hospitals for kids and their families undergoing treatment.  

The star is familiar with the organisation after her cousin’s baby was sick with neuroblastoma cancer and the family had to relocate from Los Angeles to New York.

‘I know this from personal experience how important it is when there is a sick family member and they need care and the family needs to stay together,’ she said.
