After three months of rumors claiming Eva Longoria and Ernesto Argϋello were more than just friends, the “Devious Maid” executive producer has finally confirmed that the two are indeed an item.
“I guess we have the press to thank for pushing us to see something we didn’t see!” Longoria jokingly told People magazine.
Longoria, 38, and Argϋello, 34, met last year after he was cast in her reality matchmaking show “Ready for Love.” Argϋello ended the season paired up with former Miss USA Shandi Finnessey, but their relationship didn’t last.
Months ago, before her admission, Longoria explicitly denied that she and Argϋello were dating, tweeting, “WHAT?! AGAIN? Sorry guys, still not dating @ernestoarguello,” despite increasing rumors that the two were living together.
Now that the secret is out, though, Longoria can’t wait to spread the word.
“Happy to share NOW that it’s true! Couldn’t be happier,” Longoria tweeted on Thursday while sharing People’s article about her new romance.
“Me too baby, I LOVE YOU,” Argϋello said as he retweeted the “Desperate Housewives” star’s declaratory tweet.
Things must be getting pretty serious between the two because Longoria recently returned from a trip to Nicaragua to meet Argϋello’s family.
“I think that’s why our relationship is so special – we truly started as friends,” Longoria told People.
Argϋello is an American-born with Cuban and Nicaraguan lineages. Originally from Texas, he moved with his family to Honduras until he began studying at the University of Miami. He is now a successful civic and architectural engineer as well as a philanthropic entrepreneur.
