Eva Longoria Biography and Age
It was on March 15, 1975, that Longoria was born in Corpus Christi, Texas as the youngest in a family of 4. Of Mexican-American descent, she was raised in Texas.
As regards to her education, she began at the Marvin P. Baker Middle School before moving to Roy Miller High School.

While she was still a part of the Desperate Wives, Eva went on to attend the California State University, Northridge night school where she obtained a master’s in Chicano Studies.
Initially, acting was not what she had her eyes on as she wanted to become a model. That was until 2001 when she got the opportunity to star in a soap opera, The Young and the Restless which ran from 2001 to 2003. This didn’t just give her the needed exposure as an actress but also got her the opportunity to appear on a good number of TV commercials.
It was in 2004 that she was called in to join the Desperate Housewives which would make her even more popular. She remained a part of it from then until 2012. Soon afterwards, her career went on to blossom with a lot of TV shows to her name including Children’s Hospital, Welcome to the Family The Simpsons, Mother Up! and Empire.

She walked home with the ALMA Awards Outstanding Actress in a Daytime Drama for her role in The Young and the Restless, and Screen Actors Guild, People’s Choice Awards, and many more for Desperate Housewives.

Who is Eva Longoria’s husband?
The Desperate Housewives star has been in quite a good number of relationships over the years. The first person that is publicly known to have dated the woman is American actor Tyler Christopher. The two got married in 2002 but they went their separate ways in 2004.
After her divorce, Longoria went on to date Hayden Christensen and then singer and songwriter, JC Chasez in the same year. The next relationship she began was with the Basketball player, Tony Parker with whom she decided to walk down the aisle in 2007. Just like her first marriage, this ended in 2011.
The same year, after her marriage crashed, Eva Longoria got into another dating cycle with the singer, Eduardo Cruz. This didn’t survive more than a year before she began yet another relationship with American football quarterback Mark Sanchez in 2012. She had another thing with Ernesto Arguello in 2013, but this also didn’t lead anywhere as it ended less than a year later.
Finally, the beautiful woman decided to settle for José Antonio Bastón. The two of them began dating in 2013 and got engaged almost three years later. Today, José Antonio Bastón is Eva Longoria’s husband. They got married in 2016 in an event in Mexico that had their families and friends.
