But while a lot of planning went into the proposal, the lovebirds haven’t firmed up their wedding details, but that could be because their focus is on renovating their new home in the Hollywood Hills.

The estate perched above Laurel Canyon used to belong to Tom Cruise. It sits on almost three acres and features a main house and a second guest house, as well as a heated swimming pool. 

“I know Tom, he’s a lovely person,” Longoria says. “He did a very, very good job on this house because it was stunning and beautiful, and the minute we walked in I was like, ‘This, this is a home.'”
