Eva Longoria's romance with Jose 'Pepe' Baston was a case of ''love at second sight''.

The former 'Desperate Housewives' actress married Jose in Mexico in May 2016, but has admitted she didn't instantly fall in love with her husband after they met through a mutual friend.

She said: ''It was love at second sight. A mutual friend of ours introduced us and we were like, 'Hey', and then like six months later that same friend reintroduced us and I was like, 'Who is that?'

And he was like, 'I introduced you, like, six months ago'. I was like, 'I don't remember meeting that guy. He's the most handsome man I've ever met' ... It's all about timing and the universe and destiny.''

The couple are poised to celebrate their one-year anniversary in May, but Eva revealed they have been marking their marriage every month since they tied the knot.

She told Access Hollywood: ''We celebrate every month ... and now I can't believe it's (anniversary) getting closer already.

''It's great, I'm just on cloud nine. He's amazing ... he's just the best. Everybody that meets him falls in love with him. They're like, 'I love Pepe'.''

Eva - who has previously been married to actor Tyler Christopher and basketball player Tony Parker - recently said she feels like the ''luckiest human'' alive since marrying Jose.

She shared: ''I feel like I'm the luckiest human being in the world, and he feels that he's the luckiest and that's a beautiful thing. We have so much respect for each other's dreams and ambitions, for our families and our life goals together. I never felt I was partnered with an equal until I met him.''

Eva also revealed she is hoping to start a family in the future, but isn't in a rush.

The actress said: ''If it is on the horizon for us, then great, but we are just enjoying each other now.''
