Eva Longoria shared a cute new photo of baby Santiago. The actress went to Instagram on Sunday and posted the snap featuring her son and a stuffed panda bear. In the photo, the 17-month-old is lying on the floor in an all-white onesie, with his head cutely resting on the cuddly panda bear.
The toddler poses while looking away from the camera, a thoughtful or daydreaming look on his face, which probably prompted the former Desperate Housewives star to caption the post with some cloud emojis along with a quote stating Sunday mood. The photo also shows the toddler's love for stuffed and fluffy animals since, in the background, there is another huge panda and a gigantic regular bear behind it.
People reported that Eva shares Santiago with her husband, Jose "Pepe" Baston, who is already a father of three from a previous marriage. Longoria became a first-time mother when she gave birth to her son in June 2018. Hola revealed at the time that the couple was grateful for their beautiful blessing, as the happy parents shared the first images of their newborn with the magazine.
Longoria, 44, had her child when she was 43 years old, which is a bit later than most. However, Eva feels that the timing was perfect, and her son came into her life at the right time. She explained to Parents Latina in an interview for the 2019 August/September issue that she is more patient now than she ever was before.
She also added that, despite appearances, she has more free time because she does not have as much work. Eva told the magazine that Santiago was destined to be with her at that particular stage in her life. Furthermore, the first-time mom admitted about the difficulty of trying to balance work with motherhood. Eva described that she took her son on set with her and kept him beside her while juggling the timing of breastfeeding, pumping, and feeding the baby. She also had a hard time managing Santiago's sleeping and waking moments as she worked.
Nonetheless, the actress added that she succeeded in finding a way to find that balance between working and being a parent by just doing what was necessary and getting things done. Many working people can relate to Eva's experience about managing the two roles, and they similarly use decisiveness to deal with the challenges.
