43-year-old Eva Longoria welcomes first child with husband Jose Baston
43-year-old Eva Longoria and husband Jose Baston have welcomed their first child, a baby boy named Santiago Enrique Baston.
Santiago was born at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles and weighed in at 6 lbs and 13 oz. Announcing the arrival, Eva revealed that her son arrived on Tuesday and is a beautiful blessing.
“We are so grateful for this beautiful blessing,” the couple told Hola!. Their bundle of joy arrives two years after Longoria, 43, and Bastón, 50, tied the knot in Mexico. They started dating in 2013 and became engaged in 2015 in Dubai, according to People.
Longoria confirmed her pregnancy to People in December when she was four months along. At the time the couple already confirmed they were having a boy. She debuted her baby bump days later during a casual walk in Miami beach.
However, the Desperate Housewives alum made some glam appearances during her pregnancy, including her induction to the Hollywood Walk of Fame in April.
The actress also shared her pregnancy journey on Instagram, as she often posted baby bump photos to her 5 million followers and counting.
Eva also had a pajama-themed baby shower in LA last month. Fellow A-listers like Melanie Griffith, Elizabeth Banks, Sofia Bush, and Desperate Housewives costar Marcia Cross.
50-year-old Bastón is the president of Latin American media company Televisa. He is already a father to three kids—Mariana, Natalia, and José—whom he shares with ex-wife Natalia Esperón. Longoria became a doting stepmom to them before having her own child.
“We have three children already, I have three stepchildren so it’s not like it’s anything new,” she previously told Hola!. “We are enjoying it.”
Though this is the first child for Longoria, 43, the new addition will have older-sibling guidance: He will join Bastón’s three children from a previous marriage.
Eva and Baston started dating in 2013 and became engaged in Dubai in December 2015. They got married in May 2016 in Mexico. The star-studded party even included a fireworks display. In April, Longoria revealed that she was overwhelmed with emotion ahead of her labor.
