“We have this wonderful wave of future feminists coming into this world with a different view of what this global community we live in should look like,” she said. “I’m so excited that I’m having a boy because I think the world needs more good men.
“This boy, my son, will be surrounded by very strong, educated, powerful women and I think it’s important that he sees those types of role models in his life so he knows how to support it, how to applaud it and how to honour it.”
Longoria and Bastón got engaged in December 2015 and married in Mexico in May 2016. She had previously been married twice and is stepmother to his three children from a previous marriage.
Congrats to the couple!
