Eva Mendes might be open to sharing information about her past film projects and fashion designs on her social media pages, but she draws the line when it comes to sharing photos of her children.

The actress and mother-of-two recently opened up on why she is not comfortable sharing snaps of her immediate family.

Mendes wrote in response to a fan: "I have always had a clear boundary when it comes to my man and my kids. I'll talk about them of course -- with limits -- but I won’t post pictures of our daily life."

"Since my children are still so little and don't understand what posting their image really means, I don't have their consent," she continued. "And I won't post their image until they’re old enough to give me consent."

"As far as Ryan and I, it just works for us this way, to stay private," she added. Mendes and Ryan Gosling have two daughters, 5-year-old Esmeralda and 3-year-old Amada.

Mendes told Women's Health last year that meeting Gosling made her want children. In the past, being a mother was "the furthest thing from my mind," she said. But then "Ryan Gosling happened."

"I mean, falling in love with him," she told the outlet. "Then it made sense for me to have … not kids, but his kids. It was very specific to him."
