Eva Longoria's baby son is so "easy and sweet."

The former Desperate Housewives star gave birth to her little boy Santiago Enrique, whom she has with her husband Jose 'Pepe' Baston, seven weeks ago and has admitted she can't get over how much of a "dream" the tiny tot is.

Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, she said: "He's a dream, and he's such a good baby. I knock on wood. He's just been so easy, so sweet, we've been really lucky, he's super healthy. It's just been great. Everything he does is cute. His noises he makes, his smile. He's finding his voice, so he makes all these funny [baby noises], you're just like, 'What was that?' He talks a lot. I mean, he just wants to talk and talk.

"What's amazing is seeing him grow so much from just your breast milk. And I'm like, 'This is crazy! All you're eating is what's coming out of my body and you're just like doubled in size. And it's going way too fast already."

But now that Santiago is getting older, the 43-year-old star is starting to think about returning to work and she's worried that she won't have time to juggle everything. 

She explained: "So now comes the part where, as I start returning back to work slowly, [I'm asking], 'How do you balance it all?' Everybody used to [ask] me, 'How do you do it all? You do so many things? And I was just like, 'Because I don't have kids.' I mean every project was my baby and now I actually have a baby.

"When people go, 'Your mother instincts kick in,' that's true. I mean you become a natural. But I've been a mom to so many in my life already. My nieces, my nephews, girls through my foundation. I'm very well educated in this arena. 

"I mean. I made sure I was, I took every class you could take, I read all the books I watched all the videos, and I still continued to learn."

And there's a possibility that Eva and Pepe - who got marred in 2016 - may have more children in the future but right now she's still "recovering" from her first pregnancy. 

She said: "Oh gosh, you know what, let me recover from this one. It's too soon to tell."
