Eva Longoria – Siblings, Husband & Net Worth

Eva Longoria reached a high echelon in her career not just as an actress but also as a filmmaker, director, and businesswoman with a flourishing clothing line. The star famously known for her role in Desperate Housewives started exploring the glitz and glamour of Hollywood since the 2000s and has credited her strong sense of discipline for the colossal success she accomplished. With her gaze consistently on her career, she continues to enjoy steady stardom with no sign of slowing down soon.

Biography of Eva Longoria

The award-winning actress and filmmaker was born on March 15, 1975, to Mexican-American couple Ella Eva and Enrique Longoria in Texas. She attended Texas A&M University Kingsville where she obtained a bachelor of science degree in Kinesiology. She also owns a master’s degree in Chicano Studies from California State University Northridge.

The starlet chose to start a career in Hollywood after fighting off low self-esteem she had as a teen. Without wasting time, she got the attention of Tinseltown talent agents and made her first stage appearance in the production of What the Rabbit Saw. Soon after, her talent was tapped into many other small film roles including the TV series Beverly Hills 90210. But things fell into place for the starlet in 2004 when joined the cast of Desperate Housewives. The show which showcased her beauty, and at the same time, her acting talent offered her a ladder to climb to a more desirable stage in her profession. Her position in the industry gained a stronger root in 2006 for her performance in The Sentinel, among others. Since then her relevance in the film world has lingered and she has even added production among other money-making ventures to her already-busy portfolio.


Eva grew up in a close-knit family that practiced Roman Catholicism. Her parents have four daughters in total and she is the youngest of them all. Her sisters are Esmeralda Josephina Longoria, Elizabeth Judina Longoria, and Emily Jeannette Longoria. As a child, Eva lacked confidence in herself mostly because she was considered as the ugliest among her three sisters due to her dark complexion. But by the time she won the Miss Corpus Christie title in 1998, her confidence bolstered up and the insecurities she might have suffered vanished. This could be credited for her rise to international prominence she enjoys today.

Eva Longoria has a way around her career but apparently the same can’t be said about her love life. The beauty has been married multiple times. First was to fellow actor Tyler Christopher known for his role in General Hospital. Sadly, her union with the actor lasted only two years, starting from 2002 to 2004.

While the scar in her heart was probably still open, she emotionally connected with famous Tony Parker. They got engaged in 2006 and married the following year in the civil service at a parish hall. In July of that year, they further wedded in a Catholic church known as the saint-GermanI’ Auxerrois Church in Paris. Fans thought Longoria had finally got it right this time but surprisingly, a few years into their marriage, she filed for divorce, citing irreconcilable differences.

It was revealed that the actress confided in a friend, Mario Lopez, that Parker was messaging another woman. The woman was identified as Erin Barry, the former wife of Brent Barry, Parker’s former teammate. Barry and Erin were also at the time on the brink of divorcing.

In 2010, Parker reciprocated Longoria’s divorce action with his own filing in Bexar County Texas before the divorce was finalized in 2011.

It would appear the Hollywobeauty took a brief pause from dating but in 2015, Eva Longoria opened up about her engagement to a Mexican business mogul Jose Antonio Pepe Baston Patino. At that time, Jose was the president of Televisa, one of the biggest media company in Latin America. They had met on a blind date arranged by a friend after Baston had earlier declined the request due to his busy schedule. By 2016, they tied the knot in Mexico and in 2018 they welcomed their first son together named Santigo.

Net Worth

Evidently, Longoria’s acting career has been a success.  She has played many remarkable big profit-making film roles. One of such roles was in Desperate Housewives which gave her a salary of between $325,000 to 400,000 for each episode she was cast. Other money-making sources like owning a marketable clothing line, product endorsements and more, have also contributed to her estimated net worth of $35 million. While this is so, the actress has not always had it easy with finances. In the past, she dealt with some financial setbacks when her restaurant called Beso which she established in 2008 ran out of business by 2011.

Weight, Height & Body Measurements Of Eva Longoria 

Longoria is one of the prettiest Latino faces of Hollywood. However, she is not among the tallest but her amazing body which weighs 53kg still can’t go unnoticed.

The star’s overall body statistics are 35 25 35 inches for her bust, waist, and hips respectively.
