The 2017 Golden Globes award ceremony on January 8 was a pretty big night for America’s Boyfriend, Ryan Gosling. The 36-year-old took home Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture or Comedy for his starring role in La La Land.

But with the statue in his hand, Ryan Gosling had just family on his mind.

He first began his speech by joking that he had been mistaken for Ryan Reynolds yet again. “This isn’t the first time I’ve been mistaken for Ryan Reynolds. It’s getting out of hand. Ryan, obviously, there’s been some kind of mistake, but I’m up here, so if you don’t mind.”

He continued by thanking his co-star Emma Stone and director Damien Chazelle. Ryan acknowledged that there was “a mountain of people” he wanted to thank, but couldn’t possibly do it in the time allowed.

So he made sure to thank the one person who’s always had his back: his longtime partner, Eva Mendes.

“I would like to try to thank one person properly and say while I was singing and dancing and playing a 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.”

“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. So sweetheart, thank you.” As the camera panned over the crowd, it’s clear that Jessica Chastain and Octavia Spencer appreciated Ryan’s heartfelt gratitude to his lady.

“To my daughters Amada and Esmeralda, I love you. And if I may, I would like to dedicate this to the memory of her brother, Juan Carlos Mendez.”

Juan Carlos was Eva Mendes’ brother, who passed away after a two-year battle with throat cancer. He died the very same week that Eva gave birth to Amada in April 2016.
