Aug. 6 (UPI) -- New mom Eva Longoria says son Santiago is "a dream."
The 43-year-old actress discussed Santiago, her 6-week-old baby boy with husband Jose "Pepe" Baston, in an interview with Entertainment Tonight published Sunday.
"He's a dream, and he's such a good baby," she said. "I knock on wood. He's just been so easy, so sweet, we've been really lucky, he's super healthy. It's just been great."
"[Today was] the first time I've had hair and makeup in seven weeks and I was breastfeeding [Santiago] this morning and I think he was like, 'Who are you? Where's my mom?'" the star joked.
"So now comes the part where, as I start returning back to work slowly, [I'm asking], 'How do you balance it all?'" she said.
Longoria shared a photo on Instagram Stories of herself getting her hair and makeup done for the premiere.
"Getting ready for the @dogdaysthefilm premiere," she captioned the post.
Longoria gave birth to Santiago in June after confirming her pregnancy in December. She announced her son's birth to Hola! USA, saying, "We are so grateful for this beautiful blessing."
