Hey girl, will you marry me?

At Ryan Gosling’s directorial debut at South by Southwest Film Festival, one woman spontaneously seized the moment to propose to her girlfriend.

During a question and answer session held after the screening of ‘Lost River’ in Austin, Texas, the woman took the roving microphone from Gosling and asked her girlfriend of 11 years to marry her.

"I want the rest of my life to be with you," she told her other half as the crowd melted.

As the woman's partner said yes, Gosling, Eva Mendes and Saoirse Ronan looked on and applauded.

The 34-year-old actor and co-star Eva Mendes (41) welcomed their daughter Esmeralda in September last year.

The notoriously private couple have managed to keep their little girl hidden from the paparazzi. Last week they were spotted out with their baby, but covered her carrier with a blanket.

"Whether we like it or not, privacy is going to be very difficult for Esmeralda. I think it’s unfair but that’s our reality. So Ryan and I decided early on to give her as much privacy as we could," Eva previously explained.
