Eva Mendes has not posted anything on Instagram recently because one of her daughters thought she was too busy with her phone.

"I noticed that she took it personally", 46-year-old Mendes writes on Instagram.

She has two daughters with actor Ryan Gosling: Esmeralda, 6, and Amada, 4.

"And of course she did, because she is a child and they take things personally unless we as parents do our very best to show that something is not personal," said the actress.

A good conversation followed, in which Mendes apologized and her daughter promised that she would pay more attention to her. "I realized that the fact that I am always at home does not necessarily mean that my mind is on it."
