Ryan Gosling is absolutely enamored with his little family.

In a recent interview with Hello! magazine, the 35-year-old actor gushed about his girlfriend Eva Mendes.

“I know that I’m with the person I’m supposed to be with,” Gosling said of Mendes, 41.

Gosling also noted the one quality he’s looking for in a woman: “That she’s Eva Mendes. There’s nothing else I’m looking for.”

The two have been dating since 2011 and have a 1-year-old daughter, Esmeralda Amada. The Big Short star said he’s excited to spend the holiday season with his little family.

“This will be our first Christmas where [Esmeralda] is sort of taking it all in, so that’s exciting,” he said.

The stars have kept their daughter out of the spotlight since her birth, but a source previously told PEOPLE that Gosling is “madly in love” with little Esmeralda, and Mendes is loving her life as new mom.

“She’s never been happier,” the source said of Mendes. “She and Ryan are just in awe of this beautiful person they created. It’s a really special time for them.”

Gosling and Mendes first met while filming 2012’s The Place Beyond the Pines.
