Eva Mendes celebrates Ryan Gosling going full 'Cuban Papi' for “SNL”: 'Years of hanging out with my Dad paid off'

Eva Mendes is joining the long list of fans celebrating Ryan Gosling's latest stint as the host of Saturday Night Live.

While social media users lose their collective minds over the unhinged "Papyrus" sequel or Gosling’s Beavis impression, Mendes is hyping up her husband’s performance in a sketch that pokes fun at how marriage can change a man.

Mendes, a Florida native born to Cuban parents, joked about the sketch on Instagram, sharing a clip and writing, “Coño! My Cuban Papi made this Cuban Mami so happy with this!! Years of hanging out with my Dad paid off.”

She added, “Gracias to the super talented @marcellohdz for this skit. The way you say ‘Eva Mendes!’ And @kenanthompson always crushing. Can’t wait for this trio’s next reunion.”

In "Can’t Tonight," the Barbie actor dons a curly wig and tries out his Cuban accent while at a bar with his pals (Marcello Hernández and Kenan Thompson using exaggerated accents of their own). When a server asks about their respective accents, Thompson says of Gosling’s character, “He's from Tennessee but ever since he married a Cuban woman, he different.”

Gosling agrees: “A Cuban wife can change you." He even demonstrates: "I used to talk like this,” he says before switching over to a standard American accent to say, “Hot dog. Hamburger. Patagonia.” Switching back to a Cuban accent, he boasted, “But now, I talk like a Cuban Papi.”

The rest of the sketch sees Hernández and Gosling trying to convince Thompson to join them at the club, including a couple of shoutouts for Gosling's wife.

To close out the episode, Gosling thanked the SNL cast and crew, along with guest-star Emily Blunt, before concluding with a mention for his family: “Eva, Ezzy, Ama, I love you!,” he said, referring to his wife and their daughters, Esmeralda and Amada.
