UPDATED, March 12, 2:52 p.m.: Jose Bastón, husband to “Desperate Housewives” actress Eva Longoria, is selling his Miami Beach condo to a Quebec developer for $8.75 million, The Real Deal has learned.

Bastón, former president and board member of Mexico City-based Televisa, the largest media company in Latin America, is under contract to sell his combined unit at Il Villaggio, at 1455 Ocean Drive, to Zave and Celia Aberman, according to a spokesperson for One Sotheby’s International Realty.

Barbera Estela of One Sotheby’s represented both sides of the deal. The condo hit the market last year for $9.9 million.

Unit 1104 and 1105 includes four bedrooms, four bathrooms, four oceanfront terraces and 4,425 square feet of interior space. It also features a private elevator, a marble master bath, smart home system and Miele kitchen appliances.

Longoria, who is also a producer, restaurateur and activist, married the Mexican businessman in 2016. He recently stepped down from Televisa’s board of directors, citing personal reasons.

Property records show Bastón’s Oceanview 1105 LLC and Emfer Inc. paid a combined $7.85 million for the two units in 2012.

Brazilian billionaire developer Jose Isaac Peres of Multiplan Real Estate Asset Management completed Il Villaggio in 1998. He’s now working on two condo developments in Miami Beach.

Correction: An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated that the deal closed, according to a spokesperson. It’s under contract.
