Eva Longoria and Tony Parker "always talking" about having children

08/29/2007 at 09:54 PM ET

At Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry‘s request, Eva Longoriacannot get pregnant this year since a pregnancy storyline is notplanned for Gabrielle, but the actress assures family is in thecards for her and Tony Parker, 25.

We’re always talking about that, and it’s going to happen. Tony wantschildren and so do I, but I’m also involved in a very successful series,which has been the greatest break of my career and I have to berespectful of that. This is our fourth season now, and we’re looking atseveral more years hopefully, so having a baby is a huge decision.We’re going to wait and think a while before we make that step.

The 32-year-old doesn’t mind waiting since she doesn’t feel her biological clock ticking yet.

I’m still pretty young, and I don’t feel any urgency to have a babynow. Although naturally, as a woman, I dream about having kids.

Once she becomes a mother, expect Eva to take some time off to devoteto her offspring. The star says she wouldn’t stop working, but a breakis crucial in a child’s first few months.

Having a child should be a very precious moment in a woman’s life, andI don’t want to worry about showing up on a set at 7:00 in the morningand have a nanny look after my baby during the day. I’m looking forwardto being a mom. I want it to be the best time of my life. I want to bea very loving and caring mother.

Usually I am annoyed with Eva because all she ever talks about is Tony but this interview is nice and sweet. I hope she doesn’t get nannies and is a hands on mother.

Can you imagine your boss tellin you not to live your life? I understand it’s for a show that she’s one of the starts of, but reading that her boss told her not to plan pregnancy soon is sad. 😦
