If Eva Longoria is looking like a desperate housewife these days, it probably has something to do with that baby bump she's been sporting lately. Like most women expecting their first child, we're sure she can hardly wait for the arrival, slated for some time in May.
But there have been instances when she recalls that she didn't feel like she was pregnant. After all, that extra baggage she's hoisting around hasn't stopped her from working on her latest gig, the ABC drama Grand Hotel, which has been laying down film in Miami recently.
Then there were these remarks that she related to audiences watching Entertainment Tonight just days ago.http://variety.com/2018/tv/news/eva-longoria-grand-hotel-abc-1202685451/
"'I have been working, so sometimes I wake up and I forget I am pregnant," said Longoria. "Like this morning, I was like, 'Oh my god, I am late!' and then I was like, 'Why can't I get out of bed?' and I was like, 'Helppp!'"
Reportedly, her husband, Televiso media empire president José 'Pepe' Bastón, had to talk the actress out of taking a ski trip on account of her condition. But that hasn't stopped her from checking out the sites in Miami, especially restaurants like Yardbird Southern Table, making it convenient for her to eat for two. Wearing a t-shirt, tights, ball cap and aviators, the 43-year-old Longoria was decidedly keeping a low profile around town, but remaining active, even with that growing bun in her oven.
Longoria and Bastón confirmed the pregnancy back in January, and if the child arrives in May, it'll be a bonus for the two as it'll be the same month they'll be celebrating the second anniversary of their marriage.
Aside from hopes that the baby will be healthy, chances are it'll boast the genes that make the couple so photogenic. Not only is there a chance it'll have the same entrepreneurial smarts as Bastón, it might even inherit Longoria's intellect.
The actress, best known for her role in the satirical primetime soap Desperate Housewives, as well as afternoon dramas like General Hospital and The Young and the Restless, not only has a Bachelor of Science degree in Kinesiology, she also earned a Masters in Chicano Studies for a thesis on Latino influence on career advancement.
Besides starring in Grand Hotel, slated to be part of ABC's fall programming rollout later this year, she's also the show's executive producer.
