Pregnant Eva Longoria's heartbreaking post about the death of her fur baby

The actress said, "He was my baby before this baby in my belly".

As she prepares to welcome her first child, Eva Longoria has had to endure the death of her first charge, her beloved dog Jinxy.

The heavily pregnant star, who is expecting a baby boy with husband José "Pepe" Antonio Bastón, took to Instagram for a heartfelt post about her late Maltese terrier.

"So the day I've been dreading happened last night. Jinxy passed away in my arms at the vet. He had a stroke that he just couldn't come back from," Eva wrote under a photo of her cradling the dying pup.

The Desperate Housewives actress said Jinxy was 15 years old—96 in dog years—and "filled those years with lots of love and laughter."

"He was my baby before this baby in my belly came along," she wrote alongside a montage of pictures of herself with Jinxy over the years. "I'm so sad but know that he's out of his suffering."

Jinxy is survived by her canine pal, Popeye the French bulldog.
