Eva Longoria engaged, planning third wedding

Eva Longoria is heading back down the aisle after accepting her businessman boyfriend Jose Antonio Baston's proposal.

The 40-year-old former Desperate Housewives star announced the happy news of her engagement on her Instagram account on Sunday (13Dec15), alongside a photo of the couple kissing in Dubai, where the star and her man attended the Global Gift Gala at the Dubai International Film Festival on Saturday (12Dec15).


Longoria captioned the snap, "Ummmm so this happened….#Engaged #Dubai #Happiness."


The actress, whose new TV comedy Telenovela debuts on Monday (14Dec15), and her new fiance, who is the director and president of Television and Content at media company Televisa, started dating in late 2013.


She was previously married to actor Tyler Christopher from 2002 to 2004 and French basketball star Tony Parker from 2007 to 2011.


The engagement news comes just weeks after Parker broke his silence about the split in an interview with Canal + show The Conversation.


"It's not easy to leave a relationship, because when I get involved in something, I want to do well," the sportsman, who is now married to French journalist Axelle Francine, said. "The exposure, I could not control. This is the world we live in today; everything is on the Internet and on social network sites. I never paid attention to what people said. Hollywood is another world, on another level."
