She is neither desperate for a child nor a kid-free housewife any longer.

Instead, Eva Longoria is a mother!

For the first time in her entire life!

The actress and her husband, Jose Bastón, welcomed a baby boy into the world on Tuesday, June 19, according to HOLA! USA, which broke the awesome news.

This outlet has also confirmed that the married twosome has named their child Santiago Enrique Bastón.

Has a rather nice and beautiful ring to it, doesn’t it?

Weighing in at six pounds and 13 ounces, the baby boy arrived at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, this same source writes.

Most exciting of all, however? HOLA! included an intimate snapshot of Longoria and her newborn just moments after the latter’s birth.

Does it get any sweeter than this?!?

"We are so grateful for this beautiful blessing," Longoria and her husband told HOLA! USA.

Bastón is the 50-year old president of Televisa, the largest media company in Latin America.

He has three kids from a previous marriage and he started dating the former Desperate Housewives star in 2013.

He later proposed to her in Dubai in December 2015; the couple got married in May of 2016 in Mexico.

The 43-year old actress, meanwhile, confirmed her pregnancy last December and days later debuted her beautiful baby bump in Miami Beach.

We learned at this same time that the child would be a boy.

Said Longoria this spring at the premiere of the film Overboard, speaking to E! News:

I can’t wait to meet him.

"I just can’t wait to see what his personality is like, what he looks like, how much hair he’s going to have. There’s so much to look forward to, and it’s becoming more real every day."

And this is similarly what she told People Magazine in April about becoming a mother:

“[I’m] excited but nervous. Nervous, excited, emotional,” she told the publication, adding that all her family will be at the hospital:

“They won’t be in the delivery room but they’ll be there.”

Longoria, who has been a vocal a supporter of the Time’s Up movement and the #MeToo movement, previously told fans that she will be raising a feminist son.

“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, concluding:

“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."


And congratulations!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
