Eva Longoria’s baby joy — and sadness
EVA LONGORIA has welcomed her first child — just days after bidding farewell to her beloved dog.
Over the weekend, the former Desperate Housewives star posted a series of pictures of herself with the much-loved pooch, named Jinxy, who she described as ‘my baby before this baby in my belly came along’.
She captioned the snaps: ‘So the day I’ve been dreading happened last night. Jinxy passed away in my arms at the vet. He had a stroke that he just couldn’t come back from. He was 15 years old (96 in dog years) and he filled those years with lots of love and laughter.’
She added: ‘I’m so sad but know that he’s out of his suffering. Anyone who knew me, knew Jinxy. He will be missed by many. I love you Jinxy 💔’
Now Eva’s heartbreak is being soothed by a new addition to the family — her son Santiago Enrique Baston, who was born on Tuesday.
She told Hola! USA magazine that she and hubby Jose Baston are ‘so grateful for this blessing’.
Eva, 43, has been showing off her baby bump and keeping fans updated with her progress throughout her pregnancy.
She married Baston, president of Latin American media company Televisa, in May 2016.
