Hopefully Mario Lopez’s kids Gia, 7, and Dominic, 4, aren’t on Instagram yet — they might be a little jealous of his latest photo! On Tuesday, August 14, the Extra host shared a picture of himself admiring BFF Eva Longoria’s 7-week-old son Santiago.

“This is some of your best work @EvaLongoria,” wrote Lopez, 44. “#Santiago #BabyBaston #LoveHim #TioMario.” (Lopez is Santiago’s godfather and tio means uncle in Spanish. Longoria is Gia’s godmother.)

In the snap, the star’s bundle of joy dozes peacefully in a DockATot lounger.

The Desperate Housewives alum, 43, welcomed her first child with husband José Baston in June. While this is Longoria’s first baby, the media mogul shares four children with ex-wife Natalia Esperón: Natalia, 23, Mariana, 15, and twins Sebastian and Jose, 15.

This is some of your best work @EvaLongoria… #Santiago #BabyBaston #LoveHim #TíoMario

Earlier this month, Longoria gushed to Us Weekly that Baston is her rock. “I don’t know how to do this alone,” the Overboard actress admitted. “I’ve been so grateful that I have an amazing partner who supports me emotionally, taking the baby, helping with the baby, giving the baby a bath. I mean, you have this partnership. It takes a village.”

And Baston gets the seal of approval from Lopez. “I think he’s the kind of guy that Eva has always liked: older, intelligent, successful,” the Saved by the Bell alum told Hello Magazine in 2016. “He made his own career, and doesn’t need her per se. They are perfect complements for each other. He commands her respect. Eva was so used to being in control of everything and now they can share that. I couldn’t have picked a better guy for her.”

The couple tied the knot in May 2016.
