(NEW YORK) -- Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes went on a special date on Wednesday. They attended the college graduation of Gosling's mother in Ontario, Canada.
Canada's QMI Agency reports the couple witnessed Gosling's mom, Donna, receive her diploma at Brock University. The Canadian actor stood up, clapped and snapped pictures of his mother when her name was called.
The couple left the ceremony early so they wouldn't be too much of a distraction.
