In an exclusive interview with In Touch, Eva Longoria, who is expecting a baby boy with husband José Antonio Bastón, opens up about being a first-time mom at 43.

After years of speculating headlines about the tiny 5-foot-2 star being pregnant, she says that when she finally found out she was, she wasn’t worried about trying to hide it. “For years they’ve been saying it. I’d have a burger and: ‘Eva’s pregnant!'” the actress jokes. “And then they go, ‘Eva’s fat!’ It was so funny, the one time they don’t say I’m pregnant, I am!”

Eva went on to explain that she was never worried about children not being in her future. “Women are having babies later and later, so I didn’t have that ‘biological clock ticking’ pressure. I [also] wasn’t with anybody for a while. I think babies are a product of love and partnership,” she shares, adding that when she met José she knew it was time.

Now seven months along, she says she is starting to get everything in order. “Right now I’m without a home because I’m selling my old house! I don’t have a nursery, I haven’t stocked up on anything. [Soon] I’ll be in my new house and I can start focusing! But I’m very happy!” she gushes.
