“My husband and I were recently playing backgammon on our balcony in Miami, drinking rosé,” Eva told Life & Style at the Aug. 7 ACE Awards in NYC. “We both looked at each other and were like, ‘Are we in heaven? Because this is amazing.’” After 15 months of marriage, Eva, 42, and José, 49, are clearly still in the honeymoon phase. José, Eva says, is “the best human being I have ever known.”

Following their May 2016 nuptials, the Desperate Housewives alum gushed to E! News about married life and hoped for a lifetime of anniversary celebrations. “We just celebrated two months. Yes, only 50 more to go!” she said at the time. “[The honeymoon] was amazing.”
The Telenovela star’s marriage to the handsome Mexico native came more than five years after she finalized her divorce from Tony Parker. The actress and the basketball player, 35, were married from 2007 to 2011. Eva opened up about their painful split — the result of Tony’s reported infidelity — during a 2012 interview on The Conversation With Amanda de Cadenet.
“It wasn’t about who he chose,” she said at the time. “I mean, I had moments [where I wondered], ‘Am I not sexy enough? Am I not pretty enough? Am I not smart enough?’ But in so many of those questions, I immediately stopped and said, ‘No, don’t start doing that.’ Because you can get stuck in that cycle and you can carry on to other things.”
