Eva Longoria Bastón looks gorgeous and sounds so in love in the December issue of ‘Redbook’ as she opens up about the special bond she shares with her husband.
Eva Longoria Bastón looks stunning on the December issue of Redbook magazine, where she opens up about her relationship with her husband, José Bastón. Eva and José were married on May 22, (it was Eva’s second marriage), and the star says even when they started dating she knew there was something special about the relationship! She tells the mag: “Even before we got engaged, we just felt married. We called one another “my husband” and “my wife.” It didn’t take either one of us very long to know that “this is the one.” In my case, it only took 40 years to find him!”
While we may know her as Eva Longoria, the actress officially changed her name to Eva Longoria Bastón after the couple’s nuptials — and changing her name was an important choice for Eva. “I love him, I love his last name, and I love that tradition. It’s a choice I made, but I realize it’s not for everybody. I was thrilled to take his name,” she says.

The actress has endured her fair share of ups and downs but never let that change her optimistic nature. “I remember losing auditions or being let go from a job and I’d say, ’That must mean there’s something amazing ahead for me!’ My friends would laugh and look at me like I was crazy. I have never, ever had a personal pity party,” she says.
From a young age, Eva developed an ambitious work ethic, which was inspired by her mother. “I wanted to have a Quinceañera when I was 15 and my family didn’t have the money, so I got a job at Wendy’s and paid for it myself. I couldn’t wait to get to work and make my own money. There was never any resentment, because I saw how hard my mother worked and all she did for my sister [with special needs], and I wanted to do whatever I could to help. We all did,” she says.
