The 43-year-old actress and her husband Jose 'Pepe' Baston welcomed son Santiago into the world on June 19 and on Monday (09.07.18), the former 'Desperate Housewives' star posed for her first photoshoot - and admitted she found it "hard" juggling the job with her baby's needs.

She shared a picture of herself in a black and gold robe posing with photographer Bernardo Doral on Instagram and wrote: "First photo shoot after pregnancy! Not gonna lie, this one was hard! Trying to breastfeed and work around Santiago's schedule.

"Couldn't think of better hands to be in than my dear friend @bernardodoral! Thank you for making it as fun as always!! Grx a @usahola. Can't wait for y'all to see the photos!(sic)"

The photographer reposted the photo and praised both Eva and Santiago.

He wrote: "You are amazing and Santiago is top baby, .... You look beautiful, both of you [heart emoji] (sic)"

Eva previously revealed she felt "so grateful" to have her son in her life.

She said: "We are so grateful for this beautiful blessing."

Eva had also previously shared her hope that her son will learn to "applaud and honour" feminism when he grows up, because she believes the world needs "more good men".

She said: "We have this wonderful wave of future feminists coming into this world with a different view of what this global community we live in should look like. I'm so excited that I'm having a boy because I think the world needs more good men. This boy, my son, will be surrounded by very strong, educated, powerful women and I think it's important that he sees those types of role models in his life so he knows how to support it, how to applaud it and how to honour it."
