Eva Longoria is pregnant with her first child

Eva Longoria has a lot to celebrate this Christmas, with the actor confirming she is expecting her first child her husband Jose 'Pepe' Baston. According to US Weekly a representative confirmed to the publication that the 42-year-old is four months pregnant with a baby boy.

While it is their first child together, Baston is already a father to three children with his ex-wife Natalia Esperon; Jose, Tali and Mariana.

Longoria and Baston held their wedding in Acapulco, Mexico during May last year, the third marriage for the star.

The Desperate Housewives star was forced to deny pregnancy rumours in April this year, after photos of her in a swimsuit during Baston's 49th birthday celebrations surfaced.

"I saw some pictures of myself [looking] really fat on a boat"," she said during a Snapchat video while laughing. "I'm not pregnant, just eating a lot of cheese, a lot of wine and a lot of pancakes."

"Everybody is saying I'm pregnant and I'm not. I was just lactose intolerant apparently. I looked fat, but you know what? That happens to people. Everyone gets bloated."

Despite the shutdown, Longoria who is the godmother of Victoria and David Beckhams' daughter Harper has been vocal about her desire to have children. Last year the actor told Ocean Drive that becoming a mother would be a blessing.

"If it happens, it happens, it it's meant to be it would be a blessing."
