Actress Eva Longoria has finally addressed her new romance with Penelope Cruz's younger brother Eduardo, insisting she's "very lucky" to have met him.
The Desperate Housewives star, 36, has been linked to 26-year-old Eduardo Cruz for much of 2011 - following her divorce from basketball player Tony Parker in January (11), and the couple has been photographed together on multiple occasions ever since.
But Longoria has only now confirmed their relationship in the new Spanish edition of Vanity Fair magazine.
The Latina beauty admits she feels blessed to have Cruz in her life after the turmoil of her failed marriage to Parker.
She tells the publication, "Love did not work with that person (Parker). But it can work with another. The only thing I will say is I was very lucky to find Edu (Cruz)."
And Longoria is adamant she holds no hard feelings towards Parker for the way their marriage unravelled, because she still believes in love.
She adds, "There's a reason I fell in love and got married. I believed in it. Supposedly I should be angry, resentful and disillusioned about relationships. But I'm not."
Neither Longoria nor Parker have spoken about their reasons for the marriage split.
