Sounds like Eva Longoria won't be rushing down the aisle anytime soon! The actress is so smitten with her fiancé Jose Antonio Baston, the president of content and television at Grupo Televisa, and the ultra-romantic Dubai proposal she admits the two haven't even discussed wedding dates yet!
"I'm still in the glow of the engagement," The Desperate Housewives actress said during an appearance on Monday's Today. "It was such a surprise. It was in Dubai and it was in the desert. We're still absorbing that moment. I'm still applauding him for how beautiful and amazing it was, then we'll talk about the big fat Mexican wedding."The two were in Dubai attending the Global Gift Gala during the 2015 Dubai International Film Festival when Baston popped the question. Longoria posted a pic on Instagram shortly after the proposal of the two showing off some serious PDA and her new gorgeous ruby engagement ring. Between the passionate kiss, dessert background, and shiny new bling, the two totally nailed to engagement ring selfie!

The pair wasted no time throwing an engagement party with pals at Sass Café in Dubai. The celebration included an extensive Mediterranian-inspired menu and plenty of champagne, costing the couple a cool $10,000.
Although the Telenovela actress has kept her relationship very private, well until the engagement announcement of course, she couldn't help but taking a minute to talk about her hubby-to-be. "He's amazing! He's gorgeous and really the kindest human being I've ever met," Longoria told Today. "And he's really private! So, I never talk about him, because he's always like, 'Don't talk about me!'" Longoria may have broken Baston's "don't talk about me rule" but with compliments like that we can't imagine he'll mind.
Longoria and Baston first started dating in 2013 and people mistakenly thought he was actually her off-again ex-boyfriend Eduardo Cruz, until she confirmed there was a new latin lover in her life. The duo has managed to maintain a long distance relationship for the past two years in the midst of their whirl-wind schedules. With Baston working in Mexico and Longoria jetting off between New York and LA, it's amazing to see how a couple manages to make time for one another despite being a country away. "You know what? Pepe [Longoria's nickname for her fiancé] and I have both have very big lives, very busy lives, so the time we spend together is super quality," the actress told Extra.
