The Desperate Housewives alum first confirmed her pregnancy last December and days later debuted her growing baby bump in Miami Beach.

Meanwhile, Longoria has been looking forward to becoming a mom for quite some time.

“I can’t wait to meet him,” she shared with Eonline at the premiere of Overboard. “I just can’t wait to see what his personality is like, what he looks like, how much hair he’s going to have. There’s so much to look forward to, and it’s becoming more real every day.”

Before now, Longoria revealed she was “excited but nervous” to welcome her first child.

“[I’m] excited but nervous. Nervous, excited, emotional.”“Everything’s uncomfortable. It’s not just your belly – everything gets bigger. I’ve never seen my thighs so big, and my boobs, they’re in the way of everything. It’s hard.”

Despite feeling uncomfortable, the ‘Over Her Dead Body’ actress claimed being pregnant makes her feel empowered.

“Having my life now with my son and living it with him is great. When I’m directing he is with me, at the Golden Globes he is with me. [It] makes me very happy.”

And Longoria also shared her hope that her son will learn to “applaud and honour” feminism when he grows up, because she believes the world needs “more good men”.

“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.

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.”

On Saturday, the 21st of May, 2016, Longoria and her long time love tied the knot in Acapulco, Mexico, in the presence of a star-studded gathering of family and friends.
