Eva Longoria was quick to dispel rumours she is dating another sports star as she walked hand-in-hand onto a luxury boat in Miami with her boyfriend Eduardo Cruz last weekend.
The Desperate Housewives actress, 36, fuelled speculation she is secretly dating LA Lakers star Matt Barnes after she picked him up from LAX airport, drove him to his house and then spent several hours with him last week.
They have also been spotted looking “cosy” a number of other times in the last few months, including at an event in Las Vegas last month, and Matt recently split from his partner of five years Gloria Govan.
But this latest display of affection with toyboy Eduardo, 25, adds to her claims on website Who Say that “Matt Barnes and I are not dating!”
Eduardo, who is the brother of Penelope Cruz, has been dating Eva for the past six months and is now rumoured to be on the brink of proposing to the attractive actress.
A source said, “Eduardo thinks the world of Eva, and he hates the idea of her running off with another sports star. He’s desperate to prove how much he cares about her, and proposing seems like the obvious choice.”
If Eva accepts, it will be her third marriage – her first was to General Hospital star Tyler Christopher from 2002 to 2004 and her second was to NBA star Tony Parker from 2007 until last year.
This could be a good opportunity for Eva to finally have children. In 2007 she said about her then husband, “Tony and I would love to have kids,” and earlier this year she was quoted as saying she wants to “have kids and be a mum.”
