Eva Longoria has a new man. The actress is dating Miami-based entrepreneur and philanthropist Ernesto Arguello.
“I think that’s why our relationship is so special – we truly started as friends,” says Longoria to People magazine.
Longoria met Arguello last year when the hunk was cast for reality TV series “Ready For Love.”
Arguello’s “pick” was Miss USA Shandi Finnessey, which ended in 2012.
“I guess we have the press to thank for pushing us to see something we didn’t see!” jokes Longoria, who just returned home from a trip to Nicaragua where she was introduced to his entire family.
Longoria reportedly accompanied Arguello to his native country of Honduras to visit a school he built in his community, and to see the homes he has built for needy families.
“Their friendship and their similar philanthropic interests laid the foundation for their new romance,” the People source adds. “They’re very much in love.”
