Eva Longoria didn't like her engagement ring.

The 41-year-old actress has decided to ditch the diamond sparkler her new husband José Pepe Bastón proposed with in December in favour of just her wedding band because she finds the detailing "too much" for her style.

She said: "I'm a simple girl. My engagement ring was a bit too much for me so I couldn't wait to wear just the band."


The loved-up couple got hitched late last month in Mexico surrounded by their close friends and family and Eva believes their special day couldn't have gone any better.

She explained: "It was a magical. Ricky Martin jumped up and sang Livin' La Vida Loca and one of his old Menudo songs. Carlos Vives sang our first dance song, that was a surprise.

"Vanessa Williams sang Save the Best For Last. We were standing at the altar and I hear the song Save the Best For Last and I was like, 'Uh, God I wonder who's singing this song?' And Pepe goes, 'Turn around,' and I turn around and I was like, 'Oh my God!' "

And Eva was thrilled her best friend Victoria Beckham agreed to make her gorgeous gown for her nuptials because she was able to have the exact look she wanted.


She said: "It was so much fun because when I was in London, Victoria pulled out every single dress she's ever made and we got to like pick that top with this bottom but that zipper but this color but that fabric... I just felt like a little girl in the best wardrobe ever."

Meanwhile, Eva may have legally taken on her husband's name but she has admitted she's not keen on dropping her maiden name for work purposes.

Speaking to Entertainment Tonight she said: "When you change your name, nobody uses it. So I'm gonna do Eva Longoria Bastón, but we'll see."
