Wedding bells are chiming for Eva Longoria and her man, Jose Antonio Baston! The 40-year-old actress got engaged to her 47-year-old businessman beau on Dec. 13 after dating for two years. But before the newly engaged couple walk down the aisle, we found out all the things you need to know about Jose. Get to know Eva’s future hubby below!
1. He may not be an A-lister, but he is a president.
Jose is the president of Televisa, which is the “hottest media brand in the Latin American entertainment industry,” according to LatinPost.com. He has even been on the company’s board of directors since 1998!
2. Jose actually has four names.
Although he goes by Jose Antonio Baston, his bio on Reuters‘ website reveals that he has one more last name, Patino. This makes his full name Jose Antonio Baston Patino.
3. He apparently goes by the nickname Pepe.
He may not use one of his surnames, but supposedly Jose often doesn’t go by his true first name, either! Jose’s nickname is “Pepe.” It’s unclear how he got the name, but even Eva refers to him as Pepe when she gushes about her man!
4. He shares Eva’s passion for philanthropy.
Before he got down on one knee in a Dubai desert, Jose was traveling in the country with Eva to help with Global Gift Foundation, a non-profit that helps create better lives for women, children, and families in need. What a sweet thing to do as a couple!
5. He worked hard to gain Eva’s attention.
When Jose and Eva began dating in 2013, a source told People magazine that he was determined to prove that he was crazy about her. “He’s been sweeping her off her feet and courting her like a proper gentleman,” the insider said at the time. Looks like his efforts ended up working out!
