Eva was first pictured sporting the plastic boot last Saturday, while out with her husband Jose Baston in Beverly Hills.
She and José tied the knot in May 2016, despite the star previously claiming to People magazine that she didn't think she would marry again.
'I'm not a fan of marriage; but I like being married to him,' she said. 'I never thought I would get married again. It's him, he makes it all worth it.'

The acting talent has been married twice before. She tied the knot with Tyler Christopher in 2002, before splitting two years later and wed ex-husband Tony Parker in 2007.
