Ryan Gosling’s daughters ‘know all the choreography’ for his ‘I’m Just Ken’ Oscars 2024 performance

Ryan Gosling gushed about his and Eva Mendes’ daughters helping him prepare to perform “I’m Just Ken” from the “Barbie” movie at the 2024 Oscars.

“You were telling me backstage that your daughters came to rehearsal. When they come see you do ‘I’m Just Ken,’ do they go, ‘Oh, yeah, Daddy’s fun. He’s awesome’?” Jimmy Fallon asked the actor on “The Tonight Show” Thursday.

Gosling, 43, joked Esmeralda, 9, and Amada, 7, would say, “Dad’s Kenning again” before he noted that the Academy Awards were the “first” big show his daughters have attended.

Fallon, 49, laughed and asked whether Esmeralda and Amada were with their father when he shot the 2023 blockbuster film, to which Gosling shared that they did join him on set a few times.

“It was their interest in Barbie and their disinterest in Ken that sort of started all of this, and, you know, obviously, it’s really been a team effort, and they were on the film, and they came to set when I filmed the number,” he said.

The “La La Land” star quipped that his daughters needed some “context” as to why there were “a lot of fake tan stains around the house.”

“I wanted them to come to the dress rehearsal just to give it some kind of context for what had been going on,” he said.

Gosling, who famously keeps his family out of the public eye, previously gushed that having Esmeralda and Amada at the Oscars on March 10 was “beautiful.”
