She’s positively glowing! Ever since Eva Longoria announced last December that she’s expecting her first child with husband José “Pepe” Bastón, the pregnant actress can’t stop flaunting her growing belly. Whether it’s at a glamorous red carpet event or quaint family gathering, Eva is giving us serious baby bump envy.
On May 1, the mommy-to-be took to Instagram to share a picture from the premiere of her new movie Overboard co-starring Anna Faris and Eugenio Derbez. Eva looked radiant in a chic gown with black lace and flesh undertones.
This post comes a full month after Eva celebrated Easter on Sunday, April 1 — once more showing off her growing tummy. “Happy Easter from my egg to yours!! #HappyEaster ????,” the 43-year-old adorably wrote in her caption alongside a stunning pic of herself cradling her belly while also holding a brightly-dyed Easter egg.
Earlier that weekend, Eva shared a snap of herself embracing her baby bump while watching the sunset behind her. “Hope you are all having a relaxing weekend! Happy Saturday!❤️,” she captioned the pretty picture. She also revealed earlier that day that she would be “having a nice, relaxing weekend for Easter” in a video posted to her Instagram Story, and it sure looks like she succeeded in doing just that.
Eva previously stepped out in Beverly Hills, CA in late February to attend the Costume Designers Guild Awards — and looked gorgeous in pale pink silk dress and a matching duster while posing on the red carpet with fellow actresses Kerry Washington and Gina Rodriguez. During the event, Scandal star Kerry actually posted an Instagram pic of the trio with the cute caption, “Sisters from other misters. That baby’s gonna have a lotta aunties!”
When Eva took the stage during the awards ceremony, she also joked about dressing her baby bump throughout her pregnancy. “It’s hard enough to decide what to wear to these things, oh my God. My Spanx don’t fit anymore!” she said, according to People.
Earlier in February, Eva was photographed shopping for maternity clothes in LA with her handsome hubby. Wearing an all-white outfit that included comfortable sneakers, slacks, and a sweater, Eva walked hand-in-hand with Pepe, 49, as she showed off her belly in the recent pics.
A month before, the Desperate Housewives star proudly displayed her bump on the red carpet at the 2018 Golden Globes. At the annual award show, the actress — wearing black in solidarity with victims of sexual harassment and assault — posed with her close friend Reese Witherspoon to promote the Time’s Up crusade, a sexual harassment prevention initiative founded in January by 300 actresses and female executives, agents, producers, writers, and directors.
Around the New Year, Eva also took to Instagram to share a cute photo of her budding belly with the caption, “New year, new adventures! I’m so grateful to my beautiful family for giving this new baby so much love already!” Eva and Pepe previously announced on Tuesday, Dec. 19 that they’re expecting their first child together. At the time, she even shared the unborn baby’s gender with her fans — it’s a boy!
Eva is already a stepmother to Pepe’s three children — Tali, Jose, and Mariana — from his previous marriage to Natalia Esperon. “[My stepchildren] have been such a gift in my life,” she previously told People. “They are amazing children,” she said in another interview. “I am so happy to be part of their lives.”
The TV star has always been open to the thought of having a baby, but in years prior, her stepchildren have completed her family. “It if happens, it happens. If it’s meant to be it would be a blessing,” she told Ocean Drive. Now that she’s having a baby of her own though, she’s super excited!
Eva and Pepe tied the knot back in May 2016, and the two could not be any cuter. “My husband and I were recently playing backgammon on our balcony in Miami,” Eva told Life & Style at the Aug. 7 ACE Awards in NYC. “We both looked at each other and were like, ‘Are we in heaven? Because this is amazing.’ [He’s] the best human being I have ever known.”
