The former Desperate Housewives actress and her husband, Jose ‘Pepe’ Baston, welcomed son Santiago Enrique into the world on Tuesday.
The little baby boy, Santiago was born at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles and weighed in at 6 lbs and 13 oz.
Although, Eva recently disclosed that she was finding pregnancy hard, “Everything’s uncomfortable. It’s not just your belly – everything gets bigger. I’ve never seen my thighs so big. It’s hard.”She said
Despite feeling uncomfortable, the actress claimed being pregnant made her feel empowered.
She said: “Having my life now with my son and living it with him is great. When I’m directing he is with me, at the Golden Globes he is with me. [It] makes me very happy.”
And Eva also shared her hope that her son will learn to “applaud and honour” feminism when he grows up, because she believes the world needs “more good men”.
She said: “We have this wonderful wave of future feminists coming into this world with a different view of what this global community we live in should look like. I’m so excited that I’m having a boy because I think the world needs more good men. This boy, my son, will be surrounded by very strong, educated, powerful women and I think it’s important that he sees those types of role models in his life so he knows how to support it, how to applaud it and how to honour it.”
