Eva Lon­go­ria called Jose Bas­ton her ‘hus­band’ be­fore they got hitched

Kuwait Times - - WEEKENDER -

The 41-year-old ac­tress tied the knot with the Mex­i­can hunk six months ago in his na­tive coun­try but she has ad­mit­ted they al­ready felt like a mar­ried cou­ple be­fore the cer­e­mony and used to re­fer to him as her spouse. Speak­ing in the De­cem­ber is­sue of Red Book mag­a­zine, she said: “Even be­fore we got en­gaged, we just felt mar­ried. We called one an­other ‘my hus­band’ and ‘my wife.’ It didn’t take ei­ther one of us very long to know that ‘this is the one.’ In my case, it only took 40 years to find him!” The brunette beauty star has de­cided to take on her hus­band’s sur­name be­cause, for her, it was a no brainer and tra­di­tional. She said: “I love him, I love his name, and I love that tra­di­tion. It’s a choice I made, but I realise it’s not for every­body. I was thrilled to take his name.” Prior to get­ting hitched to the 48-year-old hunk, the for­mer ‘Des­per­ate House­wives’ star was mar­ried to Tyler Christo­pher from 2002 un­til 2004 and Tony Parker from 2007 un­til 2010 and she vowed she’d never tie the knot again af­ter her past unions. She said: “When Pepe and I met, I said I didn’t ever want to get mar­ried again. He said, “Great, me nei­ther.” And here we are! “Pepe and I are soul mates-I don’t even know how to ex­plain it, be­cause it’s like we’re two dif­fer­ent sides of the same coin.” How­ever, de­spite her pre­vi­ous re­la­tion­ships not work­ing out, the brunette beauty is adamant she doesn’t re­gret her first and sec­ond mar­riage be­cause they’ve led her to where she is to­day. She ex­plained to the pub­li­ca­tion: “I think ev­ery re­la­tion­ship is a path to where you are to­day. Ev­ery wrong turn led you to the spot where you are, so it wasn’t nec­es­sar­ily the wrong turn at the time. I wouldn’t change any­thing - never.” Mean­while, as well as set­tling into the mar­ried life and jug­gling their busy sched­ules, the Eva and Pepe are cur­rently work­ing hard ren­o­vat­ing their new home in Hol­ly­wood. Eva said: “It is a lot of work for us. At the mo­ment we’re liv­ing in Mex­ico City, al­though I’m al­ways trav­el­ling to Los An­ge­les.”
