Eva Longoria certainly isn't desperate these days.

The 38-year-old former Desperate Housewives star has confirmed that she is officially dating Ready for Love hottie Ernesto Arguello, according to People. Eva was a producer on the short-lived NBC dating show, and she met 34-year-old Ernesto last year when he was cast as one of the eligible hunks.

"I think that's why our relationship is so special  we truly started as friends,” Eva explains.

Rumors swirled in April that the two were dating, and Eva says they were just friends at the time  although the rumors helped lead them to the next level. "I guess we have the press to thank for pushing us to see something we didn't see!" Eva now says. 

Friends of the couple agree that the two seem like an ideal fit. "Eva and Ernesto are a perfect match," a source says. "They both speak Spanish, have the same religion and the same cultural background."  

"Their friendship and their similar philanthropic interests laid the foundation for their new romance," the insider adds. "They're very much in love." 

Eva filed for divorce from Tony Parker in 2010 and has since been linked to Eduardo Cruz and quarterback Mark Sanchez.

We're wishing these two all the best!
