The world collectively melted when Ryan Gosling gave his lady, Eva Mendes, the sweetest shoutout during his Golden Globe acceptance speech for Best Actor. And while Mendes is notoriously private about her relationship, she couldn't help but respond — in her own way, of course.

After Gosling called her his "sweetheart" and thanked her for holding things down at home so he could nail his role in "La La Land"...

In case you've forgotten, Ryan said...

"I would like to try to thank one person properly and say while I was singing and dancing and playing piano and having one of the best experiences I've ever had on a film, my lady was raising our daughter, pregnant with our second, and trying to help her brother fight his battle with cancer. If she hadn't have taken all that on so that I could have this experience, it would surely be someone else up here other than me today. So sweetheart, thank you."

Mendes took to Instagram to share a hidden message for her man — hidden inside a fashion post.

"Obviously this wasn't my favorite moment of the night....But it was definitely my favorite style moment of the night," she shared.

"The stunning and talented @janellemonae is killing me with this look. So so so beautiful ❤ #goldenglobes," she added.

Mendes is officially our queen of playing it cool with that subtle nod to Gosling's epic romantic gesture.

We love that she stayed true to herself and stuck to her guns about keeping the details of their relationship private.

We don't know too many women who would not have ran to the nearest rooftop to scream that Gosling was their flawless bae...

Or passed on the opportunity to throw up a pic with a bunch of heart eye emojis in the caption, Drake style.

It is truly refreshing.
