Eva Longoria shares adorable photo of newborn son Santiago's feet
While expressing gratitude, Eva Longoria hopes to raise her son as a feminist by surrounding him with strong female role models
Former 'Desperate Housewives' actress, Eva Longoria, has given birth to a son (Santiago Enrique) at the age of 43 in Los Angeles, on Tuesday, June 19. The actress posted a picture of her son's feet and mentioned that she has been full of gratitude.
The post on Instagram read, "Starting off my Monday full of gratitude for this little blessing of a human! 🙏🏻 Pepe and I want to thank all the nurses at @cedarssinai who took such great care of my baby and I. You are all angels, sharing your knowledge and experience to make sure new moms feel good about going home and caring for this fragile life of a newborn. I love this picture as a reminder that no matter how big you grow Santiago, you will always be my baby! #BabyBaston." She shared the message almost six days after she and her husband, Jose "Pepe" Baston, welcomed their first child while expressing gratitude for the medical staff who had taken care of the mother and her child.
The actress who has been a long time supporter of the #Time'sUp movement, said she will probably focus more on raising a child who will be a feminist. According to CelebrityInsider, she has explained her happiness to be able to mother a baby boy since she believes that the world "needs more good men." She also added that she will surround her son with strong, educated and powerful women. As it was required to wear black as a support to the movement during the Golden Globes, Longoria — who was one of the major influencers — put on a custom silk jersey gown with a satin v-neck.
InStyle in an exclusive interview with Longoria, quoted her saying, "Time’s Up is a multi-tiered approach to solving the imbalance of power in all industries, not just entertainment, so the Golden Globes is one small pillar of that with a platform of a billion views and eyes to say something. That’s what we wanted to do. We didn’t want to make a fashion statement. We wanted to make a statement of action, and that’s to raise money for this legal fund that is available for everybody who experiences sexual misconduct, harassment, discrimination, assault in the workplace. We wanted to use our voices to amplify that message."
Apart from this, the proud mom shared a photo of baby Santiago sporting his very own jersey for Mexico’s World Cup match against South Korea. According to People, the child joined his parents to watch his first-ever soccer match. The post on Longoria's Instagram page read as, "Look who’s ready for #Mexicogame! #WorldCup 🇲🇽🇲🇽🇲🇽." Mexico defeated South Korea with a winning score of 2-1.
