Eva Longoria is getting set to ring in the new year with the most exciting news possible:
A rep for the former Desperate Housewives star has confirmed the blessed development, adding that Longoria is four months along and she even knows the gender of the baby-to-be.
It will be a boy.
And the father, of course, is Longoria’s husband, Jose Baston.
The impending bundle of joy will be the first child for the 42-year old star, while Baston already has three kids.
He shares children José, Tali and Mariana with ex-wife Natalia Esperón.
Early last year, Longoria gushed over her then-fiance, telling Us Weekly all about his benevolent personality and how it especially shined through when it came to his kids.
“He’s a very selfless person and he’s an amazing dad,” Longoria told the tabloid at the time, adding:
“His children are the most important thing to him and that’s really beautiful to watch.”
Baston is president of Televisa, the largest media company in Latin America.
He started dating Longoria about four years ago and the two got engaged in Dubai in December 2015.
They were married in May of 2016 in Mexico.
Longoria, meanwhile, sparked pregnancy chatter in September when she stepped out a loose-fitting dress while on vacation in Greece.
Previous to this sighting, in April of this year, Longoria laughed off other pregnancy rumors after photos of her were snapped on a board.
“I saw some pictures of myself [looking] really fat on a boat,” she laughed in a Snapchat video.
“I have to tell you, all I did was eat cheese. So that’s the news of the day. I’m not pregnant, just eating a lot of cheese, a lot of wine, a lot of pancakes.”
Well…we’re sorry to report that Longoria won’t be drinking very much wine over the next five months.
But it will all be worth it in the end.
The beautiful actress was cheated on by then-husband Tony Parker many years ago and admitted to People Magazine in May that she didn’t really think she would walk down the aisle again.
“It’s him,” though,” she told the publication. “He makes it all worth it.”
How sweet, right?!?
Hola was the first to report the news of Longoria’s pregnancy.
We send our very best wishes to the couple!
