Eva Longoria, 43, gives birth to her first child as she welcomes ‘beautiful blessing’ baby boy Santiago Enrique with husband Jose Baston.
Eva Longoria, 43, has given birth to her first child, a son she has named Santiago Enrique.
The actress and her husband Jose ‘Pepe’ Baston shared the happy news exclusively with HOLA! USA, after confirming the pregnancy in December.
Announcing the arrival, Eva told fans that Santiago Enrique Bastón arrived on Tuesday and is a ‘beautiful blessing.’
Sharing a photo of Eva cuddling her newborn son, the couple gushed to HOLA! ‘We are so grateful for this beautiful blessing.’
Santiago was born at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles and weighed in at 6 lbs and 13 oz.
Eva first met 50-year-old Televisa president Jose through a mutual friend back in 2013, and they wed two years ago, with the actress gushing soon after that having a child together would be ‘the icing on the cake’.
Eva is also stepmother to Jose’s three children – Natalia, 22; and twins Mariana & Jose, 14 – from his first marriage to Natalia Esperón.
The star was previously married to soap actor Tyler Christopher from 2002 to 2004 and then to pro basketball player Tony Parker from 2007 to 2011.
After her very public split from her second husband, Eva revealed that she did think about parenthood but later admitted she didn’t know if children were in her future.
Before tying the knot with Bastón in May 2016, the actress added that she was aware her age could be a factor in getting pregnant.
I just turned 40, so I have thought, ‘Is time running out?’ ‘ she said. ‘I should be thinking about [children], but I feel like my life is full.’
She added that Bastón’s three children from a previous marriage were a ‘gift,’ saying, ‘We are fulfilled. If there is anything else to come, it would be icing on the cake.’
