Eva Longoria is officially a mum! HELLO!'s sister publication, HOLA! USA, has exclusively confirmed that the Desperate Housewives star has welcomed her first child, a son named Santiago Enrique Bastón, with husband José "Pepe" Bastón. The couple's baby boy was born on Tuesday, 19 June, at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles weighing 6 lbs and 13 oz. "We are so grateful for this beautiful blessing," Eva and José told HOLA! USA.

The new mother and her husband have also shared with us the first photo of their little boy — and motherhood already appears to suit Eva. In the sweet image, Eva lovingly cradles her newborn, while he rests on her chest wearing his hospital beanie. Aw! Little Santiago was born just over two years after she and José said "I do" in a lavish wedding held in Mexico.

She noted, “Thank God there’s a human coming out of this experience." She also admitted to feeling "uncomfortable" during the last weeks of her pregnancy.
