Some women have all the luck. “My husband spoils me all the time. Even before I was pregnant, he’d always give me foot rubs,” Eva Longoria exclusively gushed to Closer Weekly about Mexican media mogul José Antonio Bastón, whom she tied the knot with in 2016. Now that the couple is expecting their first child together this spring, José’s even upped his pampering game. “He just lets me sleep and eat,” Eva said with a laugh.
The busy actress, 43, is thankful for any rest she can get these days. She just launched the spring line of her Eva Longoria fashion collection on HSN, and she’s executive producing Grand Hotel, a new pilot for ABC. “I’m in my second trimester, so it’s like the golden months of energy, glow and all that,” she said before entering the last few months of her pregnancy. Even so, there’s a lot she still needs to get to, like coordinating a move into her new home and stocking up on baby clothes and gear for a nursery.

“At the end of March, I can start focusing on getting things ready,” she said of her growing excitement — and baby. “I’m very happy, and I’m very healthy. It’s a blessing!” Though this will be Eva’s first child, José, 49, has Natalia, 22, and twins Mariana and José Antonio, both 14, from a previous marriage. “I’m so lucky I have three beautiful stepchildren,” Eva shared. “Having them in my life has definitely prepared me for becoming a mom.” Having her first baby at 43 also has some advantages, Eva insisted.
“For me, age is equivalent to wisdom,” she said. “I embrace every year with open arms because I know I get better and wiser. Aging doesn’t just mean wrinkles — it has more to do with what have I accomplished and what more do I need to do.” That includes fitting back into her jeans after giving birth. “I can’t even think of wearing denim right now,” she joked. “The thought of it suffocates me and my stomach!”
