Eva Longoria is really enjoying motherhood. Ever since her son, Santiago, was born in 2018, she's been showing off the most precious pics of him on social media. The former Desperate Housewives actress welcomed her first child with her husband, José "Pepe" Bastón, on June 19, 2018--and the little one is just so cute! 

The first-time mom, who was 43 when she gave birth, can't get enough of spending time with her little boy. In his first year of life, the mom-and-son duo did some adorable photo shoots together, traveled the world together, and even wore matching jerseys when they cheered on Mexico during the 2018 World Cup. Now that that Santiago is officially a 1-year-old, we can't wait to see what his second year of life will be like.

The actress tied the knot with the Mexican businessman on May 21, 2016. And after months of speculation, it was revealed in December 2017 that they were expecting their first child together. Her rep confirmed to Us Weekly at the time that she was four months pregnant. While it was her first pregnancy, her husband, Pepe, already had plenty of experience as a dad. He has three kids--Tali, José, and Mariana--from a previous marriage to Natalia Esperón.

The new mami has been eager to share the cutest pics of him with her fans, taking to Instagram with everything from behind-the-scenes snaps and special holiday moments to family weekends and visits with some of her famous friends. Scroll through to take a look at Santi in his most adorable photos so far.
