Ryan Gosling is thrilled about the upcoming birth of his first child with actress Eva Mendes but the news was something that was out of left field, a huge surprise according to sources close to him. The actor who came to major prominence after his role in the romantic drama "The Notebook" was stunned when his gorgeous girlfriend revealed she was pregnant because they had been having 'issues' in their relationship concerning marriage.
There have been numerous reports about who wants the marriage and who does not and even today it is still a matter of speculation but the one thing that has become apparent is that news about Ryan Gosling is the equivalent of striking gold because his face leads to magazines flying off the racks and articles being read in ravenous fashion.
His face and news about him does not only sell magazines but it also sells products such as chairs and proof of that recently occurred with Jane Fonda. The celebrated actress was on the set of a Netflix project and the paparazzi photographed her holding a chair with the face of Ryan Gosling on the seat. Within minutes fans were speculating about her feelings about Ryan Gosling and also looking at the picture on the chair.
The chair was part of the show she was working on but no one initially knew that. What happened however shows the impact of Ryan Gosling in the entertainment industry. The chair was discovered to be sold by a company as one of a series of limited edition 'Face' Chairs and those which had Ryan Gosling's face on it sold out 'overnight' at a price of over $400!.
The news of fatherhood may have 'surprised' Ryan Gosling but for any business, entertainment or otherwise that uses his likeness he is 'great' business. The lesson is that stars sell magazines, products and tickets and Ryan Gosling is one of the top stars in Hollywood and if there is ever a question just look at how fast things associated with him sell.
