Eva Longoria is larger than life these days. After marrying the man of her dreams, Televisa president Jose Pepe Baston, launching her own fashion line and dominating roles in the Hollywood circuit, Longoria is enjoying the ride. The beauty has received the honor of Latina's magazine's December 2016/January 2017 cover star and she is revealing all the deets about the new happenings in her life!

According to Latina, the Mexican-American actress has been on a constant baby watch as the star dons loose-fitting ensembles which is making many people ponder whether or not she is expecting. While the actress reveals that she is not pregnant, she does give readers insight in what's to come.

Longoria would be more than happy to add more children to her and Pepe's life but the actres sis currently going with the flow of things.

"If it is on the horizon for us, then great, but we are just enjoying each other now," the actress tells the publication.

While many people in the Latin community and beyond praised Longoria for speaking out in the recent election against controversial remarks made by President-elect Donald Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence, the actress prides herself on being a woman that other Latinas can look up to.

"Young Latinas cannot be what they cannot see," the actress shares. "The impact of seeing me on the screen or seeing me politically active or seeing me give back to charity, that’s something they can see and go, “I can do that.” That’s definitely a conscious choice and an effort, and it’s an honor for me. I don’t do anything without thinking of the Latina community. I don’t speak for the Latino community, I speak with them. Empower them to speak for themselves, which is the ultimate goal for a role model."

The star is certainly busy these days juggling her family and career but she has made time for another passion-fashion! Her clothing line, which is currently being sold exclusively at The Limited she admits is quite the achievement being that it allows her to show her creative side to the world in this realm.

"It’s another creative outlet," Longoria tells Latina. "I’ve been sewing my entire life—garment construction, materials, fabric—and I just love being able to create. It’s the same reason I love cooking, because it’s totally different."
