Despite his attempts to keep a low profile, Ryan Gosling’s recent attendance at a graduation ceremony caused quite a commotion. The proud son showed up at Brock University in Ontario, Canada, on June 6 to watch his mom graduate. He brought along rumored girlfriend Eva Mendes, stirring a lot of excitement.

In fact, his presence at the event was so distracting, Ryan left the room a bit early, The Niagara Advance reports. Brock University spokesman Kevin Cavanagh said, “He told me this was his mom’s day and the graduates’ day. He didn’t want to be a diversion.” Hey girl, he’s not trying to intrude on your big day.

Ryan’s mother, Donna, graduated with a bachelor’s degree in education. When she received her diploma, onlookers said Ryan got to his feet and applauded.

That man really is cuter than a puppy.
