âDesperate Housewivesâ actress Eva Longoria is now a mother at the age of 43.
She welcomed her first child, a baby boy, with husband JosĂ© âPepeâ BastĂłn yesterday. .
The babyâs name is Santiago Enrique BastĂłn. He was born at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles and weighed in at 6 lbs and 13 oz.
A first look pic of him can be spotted below in Hola! Magazine. The parents told the publication: âWe are so grateful for this beautiful blessing.â
âWe have this wonderful wave of future feminists coming into this world with a different view of what this global community we live in should look like,â she said. âIâm so excited that Iâm having a boy because I think the world needs more good men.
âThis boy, my son, will be surrounded by very strong, educated, powerful women and I think itâs important that he sees those types of role models in his life so he knows how to support it, how to applaud it and how to honour it.â
Longoria and BastĂłn got engaged in December 2015 and married in Mexico in May 2016. She had previously been married twice and is stepmother to his three children from a previous marriage.
Congrats to the couple!
