Eva Longoria is officially a mom following the birth of her baby with husband Jose "Pepe" Baston. The happy couple is now proud parents of a baby boy.

New Mom

Longoria welcomed a healthy baby at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles on Tuesday. The Desperate Housewives alum gave birth to a baby weighing 6 pounds and 13 ounces. The couple named their new bundle of joy Santiago Enrique Baston.

The 43-year-old actress and Baston shared the happy news in a few photos with ¡Hola! USA. The front cover of the publication shows Longoria cradling her baby to her chest.

"We are so grateful for this beautiful blessing," the couple told the magazine.

This is Longoria's first child and the fifth for Baston. He already has daughters, Mariana and Natalia, and sons, Jose and Sebastian, from a previous marriage.

Pregnancy Announcement

The couple announced that they were expecting their first child together a year after they had tied the knot on May 21, 2016. They shared the exciting news in December 2017 and Longoria debuted her growing belly in Miami Beach in December.

She also shared a photo of herself and a few people cradling her growing baby. "Near year, new adventures! I'm so grateful to my beautiful family for giving me this new baby so much love already!" the actress captioned the image on Instagram.

The Telenovela actress had been anticipating the birth of her child. She expressed her excitement to meet her baby boy in an interview with E! News at the premiere of her new movie Overboard.

"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," Longoria said.

Friends and family also shared the excitement ahead of the baby's arrival. They threw the new mom an extravagant baby shower at Lombardi House in Hollywood in early May.

There was a photo booth with "Baby Baston" written on the printouts, a Bloody Mary bar, and a rosé being passed around. An insider revealed that there was even a glam-up station where guests pampered themselves to massage chairs and hair makeup.

Longoria and 50-year-old Baston started dating in 2013 and got engaged in Dubai in December 2015. Baston is the president of Televisa, the largest media company in Latin America. He and Longoria married in Mexico and had an extravagant reception, which included a fireworks display.
