New mum Eva Longoria thanks nurses who helped deliver her baby son in heartfelt post

Eva Longoria welcomed their first child with husband Jos茅 Antonio Bast贸n last week, and now she's written a heartfelt post to thank the health professionals who helped her safely welcome her baby.

The new mum took to Instagram to say thank you to the people who helped her baby be safely born, alongside an adorable snap of her little boy’s tiny feet.

She wrote: ‘Starting off my Monday full of gratitude for this little blessing of a human! 馃檹馃徎 Pepe and I want to thank all the nurses at @cedarssinai who took such great care of my baby and I. You are all angels, sharing your knowledge and experience to make sure new moms feel good about going home and caring for this fragile life of a newborn.’

The former Desperate Housewife continued to say that the picture will serve as a reminder that no matter how big he gets, Santiago will always be her baby.

‘I love this picture as a reminder that no matter how big you grow Santiago, you will always be my baby! #BabyBaston’, Eva said.

The 43-year-old welcomed her first child, who they named Santiago Enrique Bast贸n, last week, on Tuesday 19 June at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.

Revealing the news to Hello! magazine, the couple said: ‘We are so grateful for this beautiful blessing.’

She also shared the news on Instagram, saying: ‘Hello world! I introduce to you Santiago Enrique Bast贸n. Thank you everyone for showering my baby boy with all your warm wishes!’

The actress and her husband Jos茅 Antonio Bast贸n, who’s the president of the largest media company in Latin America – Televisa – announced they were expecting their first child together back in December.

Jos茅 already shares three children – Natalia and twins Mariana and Jos茅 Antonio – with his ex-wife, actress Natalia Esper贸n. They were married for ten years, between 1995 and 2005.

Eva has also been married twice before – to American actor Tyler Christopher between 2002 and 2004, and basketball player Tony Parker between 2007 and 2011 – but Santiago is her first child.
