‘No words for this handsomeness! @globalgiftfoundation #GGFDUB15’ Eva captioned the picture.

The proposal comes as a surprise, since Eva had ruled out walking down the aisle for a third time, saying last year: ‘Marriage and kids are not on the horizon.’

She split from French basketball player Tony Parker in 2010, before divorcing the following year after four years of marriage.

Eva previously eloped with soap actor Tyler Christopher in 2002, before the marriage broke up in 2004.

She also dated reality star Ernesto Arguello in 2013 and had an onf/off romance with Penelope Cruz’s younger brother Eduardo.

Recently announcing her engagement to boyfriend Jose in Dubai, Eva Longoria seemed to happier than ever before. We’re loving this photo of them together at the Cannes film festival in May 2015, where Eva nailed her look with a turquoise lace gown. It’s by Georges Hobeika, a Lebanese designer that Eva also wore frequently during the film festival. And she’s not the only A-list admirer. Do the names Marion Cotillard, Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry and Kim Kardashian ring any bells? Unfortunately this Spring 2015 Couture gown isn’t available to buy any longer, but click the link (right) to check out the rest of the dreamy dresses and to join the fabulous fan club.
