Eva Longoria is really excited about getting her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame this year!

Though the Desperate Housewives alum can't help but point out the irony of receiving her mark on the famous walkway the same year of as her "idol" Selena Quintanilla!

On Thursday, the actress took to Instagram to pay tribute to the late Tejano Music legend — who will receive her star over 20 years after being fatally shot by a fan.

Pointing out the similarities between herself and her "fellow Tejana," Longoria wrote:

"I could never have dreamed that one day I would receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. But even more ironic is that the same year I receive my star, so does my idol, my inspiration, my fellow Tejana, my fellow Corpus Christi native, Selena Quintanilla."

The 41-year-old noted that Quintanilla was a hometown hero who made her "proud to be from" Corpus Christi, Texas.

Fan-girling over the singer's trailblazing talent, Longoria concluded her message:

"Her smile, her charisma, her beauty put every single person who watched her under a spell. Thank you Selena. I know I will receive my star on the Walk of Fame because you dared to dream it first."

So sweet!

We can't wait for the names of these two phenomenal entertainers to be forever cemented into the historic walkway!

Ch-ch-check out Eva's touching post (below)!

I could never have dreamed that one day I would receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. But even more ironic is that the same year I receive my star, so does my idol, my inspiration, my fellow Tejana, my fellow Corpus Christi native, Selena Quintanilla. She was the reason I even dared to dream that a better life was possible. And that that life didn't have to distance you from where you came from. So many people become famous and leave a place without ever crediting it with the role it played in shaping their lives. Selena was proud of being from Corpus Christi, Texas. And that made me proud to be from Corpus. She blazed the way for all of us and I will be forever grateful to her for not only that but for the pure joy I felt when I got to see her perform. Her smile, her charisma, her beauty put every single person who watched her under a spell. Thank you Selena. I know I will receive my star on the Walk of Fame because you dared to dream it first. ⭐⭐⭐A photo posted by Eva Longoria Baston (@evalongoria) on Jun 30, 2016 at 10:30am PDT
