ON A LIGHTER NOTE …

Des­per­ate no more! The newly mar­ried ac­tress has found her hap­pily ever after

In Touch (USA) - - The big interview -

They say the third time is the charm — and that cer­tainly seems to be the case for Eva Lon­go­ria. Fol­low­ing two failed mar­riages (she was pre­vi­ously wed to soap star Tyler Christo­pher and later to NBA player Tony Parker), she tied the knot with her “soul mate,” me­dia mogul Jose An­to­nio Bas­ton, 48, in May. “I couldn’t be any luck­ier to have this man as my part­ner,” gushes the ac­tress, who re­cently de­buted her lat­est Eva Lon­go­ria Home Col­lec­tion at Jcpen­ney. “I al­ways say to him, ‘What took you so long? Now we only have 50 years to­gether!’” Here, the 41-year-old talks to In Touch’s Amanda Wil­liams about fam­ily plans, her age-de­fy­ing beauty se­crets and her big­gest “fan­girl” mo­ment.

Sounds like mar­ried life is go­ing well! EL: It’s so great! I wake up ev­ery morn­ing, roll over and say, “I’m the luck­i­est woman in the world.”

What makes Jose such a great hus­band? EL: He com­ple­ments my life. We have the same val­ues and the same work ethic, and we’re not only re­ally ded­i­cated to our ca­reers, but also to our fam­i­lies. All of the guys at my wed­ding were like, “If you didn’t marry him, we would have!”

Ev­ery­body loves him!

What’s the best part about be­ing mar­ried? EL: Hav­ing a per­son there by your side no mat­ter what is re­ally a great feel­ing. We help each other in our ca­reers and our per­sonal lives.

When did you know he was the one? EL: We knew it was fate early on. We’re both ma­ture, so we don’t waste our time with peo­ple who don’t ap­pre­ci­ate our time. We knew right away.

Any plans to start a fam­ily? EL: Well, ev­ery­one is say­ing I’m glow­ing but I’m not preg­nant! I’m just in love. We’re not think­ing about that right now — we’ve only been mar­ried four months.

You de­buted your first home de­sign col­lec­tion in 2015 — how did that come about? EL: I started my life sewing — I used to sew cur­tains, bed­ding and throw pil­lows be­cause I couldn’t af­ford them. I saw a big space in bed­ding where you ei­ther have tra­di­tional stuff, like at your grand­mother’s house, or too young with crazy col­ors, so I wanted to cre­ate some­thing for the woman who wants her bed­room to be wel­com­ing and so­phis­ti­cated and mod­ern.

How do you man­age to stay so young-look­ing? EL: I’ve been do­ing a lot of skin care lately. I’m ob­sessed with th­ese L’oréal clay masks — I do them at least three times a week. And I’m just happy. Hon­estly, I think I’m at the hap­pi­est stage of my life! ◼

Seems Zac did mind the siz­able gap he once sported, which most likely led to braces — and then ve­neers. “You can see the shape of the edges of his teeth have changed,” says Dr. Cham­pagne. “The re­sults are fan­tas­tic.”

Yikes! “He had quite a bit of cos­metic den­tistry done,” Dr. Cham­pagne says of the Por­tuguese soccer star. “It ap­pears he was miss­ing a tooth, but I think it was just tucked be­hind the oth­ers. It was ex­tracted and then he had ve­neers.”

DREAM WED­DING Jose and Eva said “I do” at a small cer­e­mony in Mex­ico in May. “I’ve been wait­ing for a day like this my whole life,” she says.
