Eva Longoria Welcomes a Baby Boy With Husband José Bastón

Congratulations are in order! Eva Longoria and her husband José Bastón welcomed their first child, a baby boy, on June 19, the Desperate Housewives actress confirmed to Hola. Santiago Enrique Bastón was born 6 lbs., 13 oz. at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in LA.

The first photo of Longoria cuddling her newborn was shared with Hola on June 20, and boy is he adorable. “We are so grateful for this beautiful blessing,” the couple shared of their son. The bundle of joy joins Bastón’s three older children from a previous marriage. However, he’s Longoria’s first child.

The couple — who married in a romantic Mexico wedding back in May 2016 — previously announced they were expecting in mid-December. Since the big news, Longoria has been very open about her journey to motherhood. “I don’t know anything about the mom world even though I have a lot of nieces and a lot of girlfriends with kids,” she previously confessed. “I’ve been reading, and it’s a lot of information and things to absorb.”

The 43-year-old has even joked about her “pregnancy brain” while she was carrying Santiago. She shared, “I have been working, so sometimes I wake up and I forget I am pregnant. Like this morning, I was like, ‘Oh my god, I am late!’ and then I was like, ‘Why can’t I get out of bed?’ and I was like, ‘Helppp!’ And then I was like, ‘Oh yeah, this thing.'”

Luckily for her, Longoria’s hubby has been there the past nine months to take good care of her. “My husband spoils me all the time. Even before I was pregnant, he’d always give me foot rubs,” she exclusively gushed to Closer Weekly. “He just lets me sleep and eat.” And now, the couple will get to watch Santiago sleep and eat, and hopefully share some photos with us of him doing so!
