Most babies get introduced to the world via an Instagram post or photo album, but not Eva Longoria's. At just six weeks old, the actress's newborn son, Santiago Enrique, is making his debut on a magazine cover.
Longoria unveiled *HOLA! USA'*s latest cover on Tuesday with an Instagram post. "Here he is! Santiago Enrique Baston is waving hello at the whole world! Couldn’t wait to share this picture with y’all!" she wrote in the caption, before thanking the magazine and photographer for "capturing these beautiful moments with my newborn son." On the cover, the actress beams at the camera while she holds her son, who was photographed looking off-screen while waving.
While the accompanying interview isn't out yet, HOLA! USA wrote that it's full of tidbits about how motherhood has influenced Longoria's activism, how Santiago's three stepsiblings help take care of him and chose his first name, and how she's balancing a variety of new projects.
Longoria and her husband, José Bastón, welcomed Santiago Enrique on June 19 at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. Two days later, she commemorated his birth with a post on Instagram, uploading an HOLA! USA photo of her embracing her son, as well as an excerpt from Warsan Shire's poem, "Home," that read, "you have to understand, that no one puts their children in a boat unless the water is safer than the land..."
"Hello world! I introduce to you Santiago Enrique Bastón. Thank you everyone for showering my baby boy with all your warm wishes!" she wrote in the caption. "Special thanks to @usahola. In light of my son’s birth I wanted to bring focus on the families that have been separated at the border. Having my son next to me, I cannot imagine him being taken from my arms. Families belong together which is why we must do what we can to reunite them. That’s why I am supporting @raicestexas and @aclu_nationwide to help fund legal services for separated families #KeepFamiliesTogether."
At the time, she also directed fans to a link in her bio that would allow them to donate to RAICES's #FreeOurFamilies fund to bail out immigrant parents who had been separated from their families in ICE custody.
