There has been a plot twist in Telenovela star Eva Longoria's love life! The actress announced that she's now engaged to her media boss boyfriend José Antonio Baston, sharing the happy news with a photo of herself kissing him in a desert in Dubai.
"Ummmm so this happened....#Engaged #Dubai #Happiness," wrote the former Desperate Housewives diva. In the romantic shot, the 40-year-old debuts her stunning engagement ring, which features a large ruby surrounded by diamonds.
The two went to Dubai to attend the Global Gift Gala at the 2015 Dubai International Film Festival. Eva kept her fans in the loop of their whirlwind trip via Snapchat, revealing that the couple enjoyed a champagne picnic before later riding on camels. José's proposal was clearly the cherry on the cake.

Eva began dating the president of Televisa, Latin America's largest media company, in 2013. The actress has gushed about her new fiancé in the past, praising both his mind and his personal style.
"He's a good dresser," she told Ellen DeGeneres on her show last year. "I always have to step it up. It's exhausting."

She also spoke to Parade magazine about the businessman, who is 47. "You know, in general I'm attracted to humor and intellect in a man," she said. When asked whether her Mexico-based boyfriend had both of those things, she replied with a laugh, "Sure. Let me tell you, I'm very lucky in my life."
