Eva Longoria Has 'Never Been Happier' Thanks to Boyfriend Jose Antonio Baston, Says Pal Ana Ortiz
Eva Longoria has dated on and off since her divorce from basketball player Tony Parker back in 2011, but according to her friend and Devious Maids star Ana Ortiz, Longoria may have finally found the one in current boyfriend Jose Antonio Baston.
“They’re a gorgeous couple, and I’ve never seen her happier,” Ortiz, 44, told PEOPLE at the National Women’s History Museum brunch in Los Angeles this weekend.
Former Desperate Housewives star Longoria, 40, and Mexican businessman Baston, 46, started dating in 2013, and, despite recent rumors of a new ring on her finger (that turned out to be one of her own), they are not engaged yet.
“I am so thrilled that she has someone who is not intimidated by her and who is not afraid by her power, her beauty, her friendship and her drive,” Ortiz revealed. “He’s just as driven and he’s so supportive.”
The “drive” that Ortiz is referring to is in Longoria’s career, which currently consists of acting in film and TV, producing projects including Devious Maids and engaging in political activism to fight for the rights and voices of Latinos everywhere.
And according to Ortiz, it’s not too unrealistic that Longoria’s passion could one day lead her to a political office. “I push her all the time to do it,” said Ortiz. “She has brilliant ideas. She really walks the walk. I think she would be an incredible politician and people would want to listen to her. She’s gorgeous, she’s smart she’s funny. She has my vote!”
Longoria for President in 2020, perhaps?
