Eva Longoria, Ernesto Arguello Dating: Couple Confirm Their Love Via Social Media (TWEETS, PHOTO)

After months of speculations and debunked rumors, Eva Longoria and Ernesto Arguello have decided to go public with their relationship.

The gorgeous TV star and her new man met while filming the short-lived NBC series "Ready for Love," where Arguello was one of the contestants. Despite being seen together after the show was canceled and though sources claimed they were smitten with each other, Longoria denied any and all romantic connection to Arguello.

Then yesterday, upon being "outed" as a couple by People magazine, the two lovebirds took to Twitter to make it official:

Me too baby, I LOVE YOU RT Happy to share NOW that it's true! Couldn't be happier..RT @peoplemag @EvaLongoria http://t.co/M1FtRAqtqO

Longoria also posted this photo to her Instagram account around the same time:

Longoria told People: "I think that's why our relationship is so special – we truly started as friends." A source added to E! News that "She just got back from meeting his family. The two are very serious as he is crazy about her."
