The captivating image shared by the “Desperate Housewives” alum showed the young one wrapping his tiny arms around his mom while they made silly faces at one another.

Views from the post’s background suggest the mother and son were in a dressing room— the front of the dressing mirror where Longoria and Santiago posed displayed hair and beauty products. Also, a clothing rack stood at the far right of the room.

Keeping it simple, a third fan penned, “Adorable 🔥,” “Such a beautiful & awesome Mom ❤️👏,” a fourth fan complimented.

From the photos the entrepreneur posted on Instagram, fans could see the duo were having a great time when they posed alongside “Sleeping Beauty” villain Maleficent.
She wore black leggings, a black sweater, and white athletic sneakers for the hang-out. “Thanks so much @disneylandparis for the amazing day! 🌟 #DisneyHalloween,” the caption read. One follower commented, “You are so cute.” Another wrote, “You guys are so cute glad you had fun 🤍.”
Eva Longoria Condems Mom-Shamers
When the “Devious Maids” actress isn’t showing off the bond between her and her son, she opens up about motherhood.
In 2020, the “Señorita Justice” actress sat with Anna Faris for an episode on the “Unqualified” podcast, stating that people should never tell mothers how to parent their children.
Talking about juggling motherhood with work and other obligations, she said, “You just figure it out” However, she added that mom shamers are damaging to society.
The model stated, “I am never going to tell someone how to parent. I am in no way an expert of being a mom.” Insisting further, she said, “I never want to be that person — to be on a podcast like, ‘What I do is I put my son to bed at 7 because studies show that the brain … Like, ‘Oh my God, good for you. You go do that.”
The “Overboard” actress felt that “even responding” to the question of, “How do you do it all?” can be the determining factor for “other women feel ‘less than’ sometimes” — herself included.
She said, “I’ll hear women go, ‘Oh my God, it’s great, blah blah blah.’ And I’m like, ‘Oh, gosh, she has it together. Maybe I’m not doing something right.”
Finally, she acknowledged her privilege and noted how grateful she was to have “a village” of support and “a lot of help” with her son in the form of her “huge family,” who all assist with each other’s children.
She went on, “I have an amazing husband who supports me, I have amazing sisters and I have amazing girlfriends who have kids the same age. So we all chip in and get it done.”
