Since announcing her engagement, Eva Longoria is in romantic bliss with her new fiancé José Antonio Baston. The petite actress has a lot to plan for her upcoming wedding and it seems expanding their family is not high on her agenda.

The Latina actress has been considering family life since hitting the big 40, telling People magazine: "I just turned 40, so I have thought, ‘Is time running out?’ I should be thinking about [children], but I feel like my life is full."

Eva feels fulfilled without having had children

Eva's fulfillment stems from her fiancé José's three children from a previous marriage. "They’ve been such a gift in my life. I don’t feel like we are lacking because we don’t have a baby," she shared. "We are fulfilled. If there is anything else to come, it would be icing on the cake."

The 40-year-old announced her engagement with a romantic photograph of the handsome couple kissing in a desert in Dubai, before jetting off to India where José got down on one knee in front of the Taj Mahal for another proposal.

The bride-to-be, who left screens as Gabrielle Solis in 2012, told People about her feelings when goodbye to her character in Desperate Housewives. "I hit the lottery with Housewives," the actress, said. "But when it was over, I made a conscious decision to not jump to another show right away. I wanted to cleanse America's palate of Gabrielle Solis."
