ON A LIGHTER NOTE …
Desperate no more! The newly married actress has found her happily ever after
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.”
