Eva Longoria Welcomes First Child

Eva Longoria has welcomed her first child with husband José 'Pepe' Bastón.

The 43-year-old Desperate Housewives star gave birth to a son named Santiago Enrique Bastón on Tuesday, June 19, at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, according to Hola! USA.

"We are so grateful for this beautiful blessing," Longoria and Bastón told the publication, sharing an image of their newborn baby boy wearing a beanie hat.

The arrival of little Santiago comes two years after the couple married in a romantic sunset ceremony in Mexico, with the actress wearing a long white wedding gown designed by close friend Victoria Beckham.

Speaking about the possibility of starting a family with Bastón following their wedding, the star had told E!: "Right now I am a step mom to three amazing kids, and I've had my hands full, and they are amazing and wonderful. It's been a lot of fun, a lot of fun being a step mom.

"It if happens, it happens—if it's meant to be it would be a blessing."

She previously revealed to Parade magazine. "I've always wanted a family. I believe in family. But children are a product of love.

"So I don't think I'll go off and have a baby by myself. I do not have that need to procreate."

Media mogul Bastón has three children - José, Tali and Mariana - from his former marriage to Mexican actress and model Natalia Esperón.

Longoria - who recently received her Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame - has been documenting her pregnancy on Instagram after confirming the news earlier this year, and recently told fans she was walking every day to get her son "here faster".

She added: "Thank God there’s a human coming out of this experience."
