Congratulations, Eva Longoria! The actress took to Instagram to announce her engagement to Jose Antonio Baston


One would think that a holiday to Dubai was enough of an early Christmas present in itself – Eva Longoria‘s only gone and added to that by getting engaged there!

The actress, most commonly known for playing Gabrielle Solis on Desperate Housewives, took to her Instagram account on Sunday to announce her upcoming nuptials to TV executive Jose Antonio Baston.

‘Ummmm so this happened….#Engaged #Dubai #Happiness’, she wrote beside a picture of her kissing her now-fianc√©.


'Ummmm so this happened!'

‘Ummmm so this happened!’


Desert backdrop, gorgeous ruby sparkler on her finger, and a massive smooch – that’s one incredible engagement photo!

The couple, who have been together since 2013, were in Dubai to attend the Global Gift Gala at the Dubai International Film Festival. When Eva first started dating Jose, a source told US magazine People: ‘He’s been sweeping her off her feet and courting her like a proper gentleman.’ How sweet!

It’s a super exciting time for Eva at the moment – earlier this month, she debuted in a new comedy programme called Telenovela, in which she plays a pampered TV actress.

Eva was married to basketball player Tony Parker from 2007 until 2010, and soap opera actor Tyler Christopher from 2002-2004. Congratulations Eva – here’s hoping the third time’s the charm!
