Eva Longoria Discusses Parenting Amid Coronavirus: 'All Planning Goes Out The Door'
Eva Longoria is sharing the all-too-real reality of parenting during quarantine! The actress has a 21 month-old son, and is sharing what her daily life looks like navigating through a pandemic.
The motherhood struggle is real!
Eva Longoria is every mother self isolating right now, sharing the challenges she is facing while parenting during a global pandemic.
The 45-year-old actress shares one son, Santiago, who is just under two, with her husband, José Bastón.
“I’m lucky cause my son is so little, he’s not in school yet and he’s not quite a baby so he’s just in the sweet spot of ‘has no idea what’s going on’ and just loves that Mom and Dad are home all day long,” the Desperate Housewives actress said.
The actress also shares she attempts to fill the days with tons of activities, but that it doesn't always go according to plan.
“I have like his whole day planned, like we’re going to paint in the morning for an hour and then we’re going to do flashcards and we’re going to do the alphabet," she said.
"Then he’ll find a box and play with that for five hours, and I’m like, okay, all my planning goes out the door,” she continued.
Despite the challenges, the mother goes on to express her understanding of the privileged and fortunate circumstances she holds.
“I think people aren’t recognizing the work of the farm workers enough because our stores are still stocked, they’re still in the fields,” Longoria says.
She continued, “There’s just such a great appreciation for everybody who is still working, as well as a call to please stay at home and flatten the curve. A community effort to really come out of this as better people."
Longoria is also keeping herself busy filming Flipped, which is available on Quibi.
