Though “he” could be referring to photographer Diego Uchitel or even her husband, many fans and followers speculated that the gender pronoun was a subtle clue about her baby on the way.
“I just turned 40, so I have thought, ‘Is time running out?’ ” Longoria said. “I should be thinking about [children], but I feel like my life is full.”
Though this is the first child for Longoria, her child will have older-sibling guidance, he will join Bastón’s three children from a previous marriage.
“They’ve been such a gift in my life,” Longoria said of Bastón’s kids in 2015, adding that while a baby isn’t a must-have for the new family she’s building with Bastón one would be “icing on the cake.”
