19. Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes
Actors Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes have two daughters, six-years old Esmeralda and four-years old Amada (no, we didn’t forget the ‘n’). According to Mendes, helicopter-parenting isn’t a bad thing, but the obvious way to go, and if you ask her, they take helicopter parenting to the next level, and even go as far as describing themselves as bulldozing parents, that is, extremely controlling.
The celebrity couple believes in giving their daughter a ‘normal life’, and unlike other couples who say that but don’t really mean it, Mendes and Gosling continue to live in the two-bedroom apartment that was once his bachelor pad, and they refuse to hire help with the children, but call Eva’s parents in case they need an extra hand. No wonder, then, that they feel the need to have all eyes on their children all the time.
