American actress Eva Longoria Bastón has welcomed her first child into the world with her husband José Bastón, a healthy baby boy.

Eva and José announced their happy news in American publication HOLA!, revealing he was born on Tuesday 19th June in Los Angeles, weighing 6lbs, 13oz. The couple also revealed they've decided to call their first son Santiago Enrique Bastón.

Speaking about their first child, Eva told the publication, "We are so grateful for this beautiful blessing,"

Whilst this is the first child for the couple, it will be the fourth child for José, who shares three children with his ex-wife Mexican actress and former model, Natalia Esperón.

Eva and José first announced they were expecting back in December 2017, with the Desperate Housewives star's representative confirming the news to a number of publications.

Eva began dating José, who is the president of Televisa, the largest media company in Latin America, in 2013 and they became engaged in 2015. They later married in May 2016 in Mexico.

Just last month, Eva paid tribute to her husband in a loving post on Instagram. Posting next to a number of red roses, Eva wrote, 'So Monday was our 2 year anniversary and I didn’t forget, I was just too sleepy to post! My wonderful husband sent me these gorgeous flowers and I’m giving him a baby 😂! I’m the luckiest woman in the world to have a husband like Pepe and I pray we have 50 more years of many blessings, much laughter and endless happiness! Happy Anniversary Amor Mìo! ❤❤❤'

Congratulations to Eva and José on the birth of their first child together.
