Ryan Gosling celebrated Eva Mendes’ 42nd birthday in the best way possible — by continuing to melt our hearts, of course!
While the couple was on their way to grab take-out from Rick’s Desert Grill — a restaurant in Palm Springs, California — over the weekend, The Big Short actor and his longtime girlfriend almost ran over a dog that made its way to the middle of a main highway.
Gosling jumped out of the car and to the dog’s rescue, saving it from any potential harm by other drivers.
In one of the photos exclusively obtained by ET, you can see the 35-year-old actor adorably picking up the light-haired furry friend and kindly handing him back over to his owner.
It doesn’t get much cuter than that!
The rest of Gosling’s trip was seemingly much more relaxing, as he and Mendes enjoyed a four-day getaway to Palm Springs, where they stayed at Frank Sinatra’s ultra-luxurious former estate, a source tells ET.
Gosling clearly pulled out all the stops for the Lost River actress’ birthday, as the home — which features four bedrooms, seven bathrooms, a recording studio, pool house and Sinatra memorabilia throughout — rents for $2,600 a night, a total of $10,400 for their entire stay. The source adds that the couple’s 1-year-old daughter, Esmeralda, also came along on the trip.
Gosling isn’t the only celebrity who saved a pup this month, however. Hilary Duff adopted a French bulldog named Peaches, who is the sister of Beau, her beloved dog of the same breed who went to “doggy heaven” in January.
