Eva Longoria is pregnant with her first child!
Eva and husband José Antonio “Pepe” Bastón are expecting their first child together.
Eva Longoria has been very vocal about her activism involving Latina actresses and hurricane relief, among other things in the recent months. However, there is one thing she has remained mum about.
The Desperate Housewives alum is pregnant and is four months along. This would be the first child for Eva and husband José 'Pepe' Bastón. The latter, who is the president of Televisa, the largest media company in Latin America, has three children with his first wife Natalia Esperón, a popular Mexican actress.
Eva, who has never been a celebrity to hide her personal life, has maintained a sense of secrecy when it comes to her married life with Pepe. She has revealed that Pepe doesn't like her talking about their personal lives, which is why she has stopped doing that now.
“He’s a very private man so he hates when I talk about him,” she told People in 2015. “But I want to yell from the highest mountaintop about everything that goes on with us.” Despite her obligation to Pepe, Eva may have given her fans a small clue about her pregnancy.
Just as the news about her pregnancy was breaking, Eva shared a throwback photo of herself from the cover of OWN magazine with the caption "He makes me blush". Now "he" may refer to her husband or the photographer Diego Uchitel, but fans desperately want to believe that "he" is, in fact, her unborn child.
Eva continues to remain tight-lipped about the news, which has been confirmed by her representative. But, she has spoken about wanting a child with Pepe in the past. The actress had said that she counts Pepe's children as a blessing and that having her own children would be an icing on the cake, but it would not be a must-have in her family.
Shortly after her engagement with Pepe she had spoken about how she feels like may be the time to have a child is running out, but she thinks her life is full. “I just turned 40, so I have thought, ‘Is time running out? I should be thinking about [children], but I feel like my life is full," she had said at the time.
It is not surprising that Eva wound up getting pregnant, despite not thinking of it as a priority, considering even getting married again was not on the cards for her. She had said that she is not even a fan of marriage, but she likes being married to her Pepe.
“I’m not a fan of marriage; I like being married to him,” she had related. “He surprised me at dinner with a beautiful gift and a song and a singer it was just amazing.” So who is this amazing man that won over Eva's heart?
The 49-year-old media mogul and Eva did not really feel any sparks fly when they met the first time. In fact, they were both getting out of relationships at the time and were not looking for anyone else. However, when they met again six months later, Eva says there was “immediate chemistry" and of course, "cliché angels singing."
“I’m so happy and excited to be with a person as kind as Pepe is,” Eva had said regarding her man in 2015, “He is probably one of the first men I’ve dated that has been older and established and, basically, a grown-up. It is so nice to be arm-in-arm with someone who is your equal.”
As fans know, Eva hadn’t had the best luck when it comes to dating in the past. Her marriage with French basketball player Tony Parker and their highly publicized divorce after a cheating scandal on his part is proof enough of that.
We sure are happy that Eva had got herself a loving husband and a beautiful family, which will soon be expanding.
