Jose Baston [ Eva Longoria husband] Wiki/Bio, net worth, marriage, kids.
Jose Baston and Eva Longoria’s relationship wasn’t exactly the perfect fairytale opening. Even though the pair got their happily ever after, things were quite different the first time they met. Apparently, the two first met each other in 2013 but didn’t have the best of beginnings. Eva was fresh out of a terrible relationship and Jose wasn’t exactly hunting for a new partner. Fast forward to six months later and the pair met each other the second time and the connections were instant. Since then, Jose and Eva have been inseparable and are together for over a decade. In this article, we will take a closer look at the life of Jose Baston.
Jose Baston is a Mexican businessman and CEO of Elefantec Global which is a media & entertainment company focused on Latino audiences. Baston is married to American actress Eva Longoria and the pair shares a son together. On the physical side of things, Baston has an athletic body with brown eyes and dark brown hair.
A private man:
As Eva has often stated, Jose is a very private mind and is not a huge fan of the media. In an interview with People, Eva mentioned,
“He’s a very private man, so he hates when I talk about him. But I want to yell from the highest mountaintop about everything that goes on with us.”
Of what’s known, Jose Baston was born on the 13th of April 1968, in Mexico City, Mexico. Baston is the son of Gloria Pation and Ricardo Alfredo Baston Talamantes the latter of who passed away in 2008. Baston has a sister sibling Rosalia Baston.
Much like his early life, not much is known about Jose’s professional career. He joined Televisa in 1989 and worked as a Marketing Account Executive for Channel 12 in Tijuana Mexico. Over the years, Jose held prominent positions in several departments including programming, acquisitions, planning, and Content Development. In 2008, Jose was appointed as the President of Television Y Contenidos de Televisa. At the end of 2017, Jose left his position and remained a management member of the company. Jose is also a member of the boards of Cablevision, Sky, and Univision Communications. Baston currently serves as CEO of Elefantec Global.
Prior to his marriage to Eva Longoria, Jose was married to Mexican Actress, Natalia Esperon. The pair tied the knot in 1995 and had four children, eldest Natalia, and triplets, Mariana Baston, Jose Antonia Baston, and Sebastian. The pair lost Sebastian in November of 2003 which caused a massive rift in their marriage. The death of her baby pushed Natalia into depression and the distance between the pair grew longer. Eventually, the pair divorced in 2005 after 10 years of togetherness. Following the split, Jose dated Paola Saad and the pair remained together for seven years. However, following his split from Natalia, Jose was not ready for a new commitment and separated from Saad.
Relationship with Eva Longoria:
Eva and Jose first met in 2013 when a mutual friend introduced them. However, the first meeting was lackluster and the pair were quick to part ways. The pair met six months later and sparks began flying. The pair had an instant spark if Eva’s confession is anything to go by.
“I had no memory of meeting him the first time, but we had immediate sparks. It was like the cliché angels singing and there was a glow around him and it was immediate chemistry.”
The pair went on a double date the day after, and Eva was awestruck with Jose. In a candid conversation with People, Eva commented on the pair’s second meeting,
“He was the most handsome man I’d ever seen. He was so charismatic, charming, sweet and funny. I thought, ‘Who is this guy?!’. He is probably one of the first men I’ve dated that has been older and established, and basically, a grown-up. It is so nice to be arm-in-arm with someone who is your equal.”
The connection was instant and after two years of dating, Jose proposed to Eva while on a trip to Dubai. The pair tied the knot on the 21st of May, 2016 after dating for three years in a private ceremony in Valle de Bravo, Mexico. The pair announced their first pregnancy in December 2017 and the pair had their first child, Santiago Enrique Bastón on June 19, 2018.
Despite his tendency to avoid media, Jose has been supportive of his wife and has been a constant rock to her career. He stepped out during the presentation of Eva’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and was also seen alongside her at the Cannes festival.
