Earlier this month, HOLA! USA caught up with Eva at the L’Oréal Women of Worth Gala, where she opened up about Santiago. She said, “We had his first Halloween, his first Thanksgiving, now we’re going to have his first Christmas." Talking about their upcoming holiday plans with People magazine, Eva shared, "We are taking him to Mexico with my husband’s family." She continued, “Of course, we will decorate the tree, have Christmas Eve dinner and a gift exchange. But we are hoping to develop some new celebration ideas that Santiago will love, and that we can repeat in coming years.”
