Mandi Gosling is an accomplished producer, theater performer, and singer best known as Ryan Gosling’s sister. Mandi Gosling was born in London, Southwestern Ontario, Canada on 1st January 1977 to Donna Gosling (mother) and Thomas Ray Gosling (father).
Mandi’s popularity soared after she attended the 2017 Oscars with her younger brother, Ryan Gosling, as his date.
Her appearance at the star-studded event earned her a lot of attention and since then, the public has never lost interest in her. Even though Mandi is not a Hollywood superstar, she has been able to hold sway as one of the most admired ladies in the entertainment circle.
Mandi Was Born in London, Ontario 45 Years Ago
Mandi Gosling was born in London, Southwestern Ontario, Canada on the 1st of January 1977 to Donna Gosling, a high school teacher, and Thomas Ray Gosling, a traveling salesperson. She has since gained American citizenship but is of Scottish, English, French-Canadian, and Irish descent.
The young lady began singing at an early age. While growing up, she took singing and ballet lessons and also performed at various stage shows with her brother.
She Helped in Raising Her Famous Brother
Growing up, Mandi and her brother lived in different cities due to the nature of their father’s job. Their parents separated when Ryan was 13 years old which led to Mandi helping her mother to raise her brother. The actor once revealed that he was so close to his sister that he was influenced by her attitude as a young boy.
Though the actor has the attention of a wider audience on his side, he maintains a cordial relationship with his sister. Mandi has been very supportive of her brother’s Hollywood career from day one. She is also proud of the successes he has recorded so far both within and outside showbiz.
Mandi Gosling Studied Journalism and Political Science
Despite her early singing and acting aspirations, Mandi went on to study journalism and political science at California State University, in Northridge, Los Angeles. She received her Bachelor’s degree from the university in 2011 before pursuing a career in show business. Ms. Gosling now works as a producer with the American TV news magazine, Dateline.
Some of her major works in the industry include Dateline NBC (1992) and Miss Advised (2012). She is also credited for the casting of Pharrell Williams’ music video for “Happy” which won a Grammy Award for Best Music Video in 2015.
However, because she lives a greater part of her life away from the media, one cannot tell how simple or how extravagant her life is. Even though she has an estimated net worth of $1 million, Mandi does not flaunt her wealth on social media.
Similarly, she is also mute on details about her love life. Mandi may be single as she has not been linked to any lover both in the past and present. Being a private individual, she has never opened up about her love life. As such, it’d be naive to make any conclusion about her relationship status. It is very possible she has a partner but has decided to keep it a secret.
