Eva Longoria and Ernesto Argüello sure look ready for like they've found love.
On Tuesday, shortly after the Desperate Housewives alum confirmed she was dating the former Ready for Love bachelor, Eva and Ernesto took their relationship public, holding hands as they strolled through Paris.
Eva, 38, looked casual yet chic in flats, white pants, a Lanston tank and black blazer, while Ernesto, 34, kept it low-key with sneakers, gray pants, a gray shirt and charcoal beanie. The couple made no attempt to conceal their affection for one another as they left the Four Seasons George V Hotel and made their way along the Boulevard Beaumarchais for some shopping.
E! News first reported that Eva and Ernesto were getting cozy in April, but the brunette beauty didn't confirm they were dating until July. "I think that's why our relationship is so special—we truly started as friends," she told People, adding jokingly, "I guess we have the press to thank for pushing us to see something we didn't see!"
A source told told E! News, meanwhile, that Eva "just got back from meeting his family," adding, "The two are very serious as he is crazy about her."
"Eva and Ernesto are a perfect match," a source also confirmed to People. "They both speak Spanish, have the same religion and the same cultural background."
"Their friendship and their similar philanthropic interests laid the foundation for their new romance," added the source. "They're very much in love."
Eva was an executive producer on Ready for Love, which led to pairing Ernesto with former Miss USA Shandi Finnessey. Their reality-TV-made romance, however, fizzled out by the end of 2012.
As for Eva's ex-husband, Tony Parker? He's moved on with French journalist Axelle Francine. In a Twitter chat last month, the 31-year-old NBA star nonchalantly mentioned he likes to "spend time with my fiancée" after games, leading many to speculate that the San Antonio Spurs point guard was engaged.
Hey, all's well that ends well!
