Actress Eva Longoria has been romantically linked to a wealthy Mexican businessman, just days after dismissing rumours she had reunited with her ex-boyfriend Eduardo Cruz. The former Desperate Housewives beauty was said to have enjoyed a New York lunch date with Penelope Cruz's brother last week (ends25Oct13), but she denied the report, telling her Twitter.com followers, "Sorry this is just not true."
It has now emerged that Longoria was actually dining with her new man, but she wishes to keep his identity away from the public eye.
A source tells People.com that the star has been dating "a wealthy, successful businessman from Mexico", adding, "She's very happy, and he's crazy about her."
Longoria and Cruz had been on/off lovers since the end of her marriage to sportsman Tony Parker in 2011. She went on to date businessman Ernesto Arguello, but that romance fizzled out this spring (13).
Eva Longoria ex-husband, basketball star Tony Parker, is expecting a child with his new fiancee. The Desperate Housewives beauty split from the Frenchman in 2010 after three years of marriage amid rumours he had cheated.
Parker is preparing to wed again by marrying Axelle Francine, who he proposed to earlier this year (13), and now the pair has revealed they are set to welcome a son.
Announcing the news on Twitter.com, he writes, "Hey just wanted to say that I'm very happy today...me and my future Wife going to have a Baby Boy!!!!"
The news comes after Longoria was reportedly spotted kissing her ex, Eduardo Cruz. Posting a link to the claim on Twitter, she added: "Sorry this is just not true."
The actress has failed to find a stable relationship, enjoying short-term flings with Cruz and businessman Ernesto Arguello.
She recently opened up about not feeling ready for motherhood, saying, "I'm not one of those women that's like, 'Oh I must procreate!' So, no. I think kids are a product of love, so if you find the right person and you want to have a family with that person, then that's when the time is right. But, if I'm 50 and single, I'm not going to go and do it (have a baby) myself."
Eva Longoria and her ex-boyfriend Eduardo Cruz appear to be getting close again - the former couple was spotted lunching in New York City on Saturday (26Oct13). The pair split just before Longoria started dating businessman Ernesto Arguello this spring (13), but now that relationship has fizzled out, she's free to see Penelope Cruz's brother again.
The couple appeared close and cozy at Serafina restaurant and even shared a passionate kiss, according to fellow diners.
An eyewitness tells People.com, "They really looked like they were in love."

The 35 year old announced the news in a post on her blog for Spanish newspaper El Pais, revealing she opted to have a baby on her own due to worries it would be too late for motherhood by the time she found her perfect partner.
She is quoted as writing, "I am going to be a mother! I have managed to fulfil the dream of a lifetime. Because of that I want to share with all of you this special journey and to be able to tell you about all my experiences during this fascinating time.
"I want to tell, also, so I can have the opportunity to show my thanks to all those anonymous men that help to give many women like me, the dream of their lives. So I have decided to tell all. To become pregnant, I turned to artificial insemination. If with this I can help others who have doubts, then here you have me if you need me."
Cruz is also the older sibling of singer Eduardo Cruz.
