Eva Longoria Gives Birth To Her First Child With Santiago Enrique Baston
Eva Longoria and her husband Jose “Pepe” Baston welcomed their son Santiago Enrique Baston to the world on June 19.
Baby Baston was born at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, California. He weighs six pounds and 13 ounces.
“We are so grateful for this beautiful blessing,” the couple said in a statement to Hola! USA.
Even though this is Longoria’s first child, the family’s newest edition won’t be alone as Baston has three other children from a previous marriage. Longoria shared in an previous interview that she was “excited but nervous. Nervous, excited, emotional” for her baby’s arrival.
Longoria, who is also an avid supporter of the Time’s Up movement, cannot wait to raise her son to be a feminist. “I’m so excited that I’m having a boy because I think the world needs more good men. This boy, my son, will be surrounded by very strong, educated, powerful women,” she said in March. “I think it’s 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 honor it.”
The couple began dating in 2013 and got engaged in December 2015 in Dubai. The two were married less than a year later in May 2016 in Mexico.
Longoria nor Baston have shared any photos of their newborn on social media yet, however the last picture Longoria shared was just three days ago in support for Mexico during the World Cup.
