'Desperate Housewives' star Eva Longoria has welcomed her first son. Holla! USA reported that the actress delivered her son, Santiago Enrique Baston with hubby Jose 'Pepe' Baston on Tuesday, June 19 in Los Angeles. Speaking to the publication, Baston said, "We are so grateful for this beautiful blessing." Baston is the president of Televisa, the largest media company in Latin America. The baby was born at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in LA, and weighs 6 lbs and 13 oz, the publication reported. 

The couple got married in an extravagant wedding two years ago in Mexico. On June 2, the 42-year-old actor showed off her bump in a pretty white bodycon and an airy white duster coat. The actress has been quite open about her pregnancy journey and had been updating fans of the same with regular pictures of her baby bump.

Baston and Eva have had a very strong relationship ever since they tied the knot even though it was not love at first sight. "I was getting out of a bad relationship, and he was getting out of a relationship, so there wasn't a connection. So, we had a pleasant conversation but there was no real connection," she told People in an earlier interview. 

"I had no memory of meeting him the first time, but we had immediate sparks. It was like the cliché angels singing and there was a glow around him and it was immediate chemistry. He was the most handsome man I'd ever seen. He was so charismatic, charming, sweet and funny. I thought, Who is this guy?!," she gushed.

Longoria had dated Penélope Cruz‘s brother Eduardo and entrepreneur Ernesto Arguello after her 2011 divorce from NBA star Tony Parker and had thought about Baston seriously when a friend re-introduced her to Bastón some months after they first met.

Eva's friends also approved. "I am so thrilled that [Eva] has someone who is not intimidated by her and who is not afraid by her power, her beauty, her friendship and her drive," Longoria's 'Devious Maids' friend and co-star Ana Ortiz told the same publication in an interview in 2015. "He's just as driven and he's so supportive."


Baston has four kids named Mariana, Jose, and Natalia and Sebastian already with former wife Natalia Esperon. Eva seems to love them like her own. In an interview with Hola! USA, she had said, "We have three children already, I have three stepchildren so it's not like it’s anything new. We are enjoying it."
