Eva Longoria isn’t succumbing to Hollywood pressure to fit back into her old clothes after welcoming her first child in June (18).
Eva and husband Jose ‘Pepe’ Baston are proud parents to baby son Santiago, and the 43-year-old has been enjoying every moment of getting to know her tot – and has not been worrying about slimming down post-pregnancy.
“Well, I don’t really succumb to any pressures outside of myself, but I really gave my body time to heal and just embrace… I was breastfeeding and just enjoying postpartum and basking in his energy and this beautiful life I created, and so I was very forgiving to my body because it created a human!” Eva told Extra.
Eva has proudly been showing off her slightly fuller figure on the red carpet in recent weeks as she gets back to work.
Revealing that she’s slowly easing herself back into a fitness regime, the Desperate Housewives star insisted she’s not pushing her body too hard at this stage.
“It’s just now I’m starting to get back to working out and dieting… but not even hardcore, just like, you know what? Let’s start… let’s start to do some movements, see what happens,” she shared.
Eva has always been real about her body, and found a hilarious way to respond to fake pregnancy rumors which surrounded her in April 2017, months before she really conceived.
“So, I saw some pictures of myself. Really fat, on a boat. I have to tell you all I did was eat cheese. I ate cheese!” she wrote on Snapchat. “And everybody’s saying I’m pregnant and I’m not. I was just lactose intolerant apparently.”
