Eva Longoria announced her engagement to Mexican media mogul José Antonio Bastón on Sunday via Instagram. The photo of the two kissing in a desert scene showed off a giant engagement ring and was captioned, "Ummmm so this happened....#Engaged #Dubai #Happiness."
Longoria's engagement ring is a stunning giant ruby, surrounded by a circle of diamonds.
The pair, who have been dating since 2013, were engaged in Dubai over the weekend after attending the Global Gift Gala at the 2015 Dubai International Film Festival. They looked amazing — he in a classic black tux and she in a long white gown with plenty of detail. Based on this photo, we can't wait to see wedding pics from their big day!
The actress, best known for her role on "Desperate Housewives" as Gabrielle Solis, is now starring in "Telenovela" on NBC as Spanish-language telenovela actress Ana Sofia Calderon, alongside Jencarlos Canela, Amaury Nolasco and Alex Menenses. Longoria is an executive producer of the show as well. She also serves as executive producer of "Devious Maids" on Lifetime, which was renewed for a fourth season that will air on the network in 2016.
Longoria was previously married to actor Tyler Christopher (who you may recognize as Port Charles resident Nikolas Cassadine on "General Hospital") from 2002–2004 and NBA basketball star Tony Parker from 2007–2011. Her marriage to Parker is rumored to have ended because he cheated on her with the wife of one of his teammates; Parker married French journalist Axelle Francine in 2014, with whom he has a son, Josh.
Bastón, 47, is the president of Televisa, Latin America's largest media company. He is a native of Mexico City.
Although Longoria has been pretty private about her relationship with Bastón, in 2014 she told People magazine, "I'm attracted to humor and intellect in a man. Let me tell you, I'm very lucky in my life."
Friend and "Devious Maids" actress Ana Ortiz told People magazine in September that she's never seen Longoria happier. "I am so thrilled that she has someone who is not intimidated by her and who is not afraid by her power, her beauty, her friendship and her drive. He's just as driven and he's so supportive."
