Eva Longoria Parker plans to raise her future kids in Texas

04/21/2008 at 05:03 AM ET

TonyevaDesperate Housewives actress Eva Longoria Parker, 32, has already made a decision about where she wants to raise her future kids with husband, NBA star Tony Parker, 25 — in her home state of Texas.  Eva wants her children to learn to love the outdoors, like she does, and thinks it’s hard to do so when you’re in a big city like Los Angeles, CA, surrounded by buildings and traffic.

Growing up in Texas is a great environment, there’s lots of open land and you’re surrounded by nature, which isn’t something you have in a big  city.  It’s really hard to appreciate nature when you’re among all those buildings and cars.

Her other dream for the future?  To have a "healthy, big family" with Tony.

Tony and I both like a big family.  I come from a family of four girls and Tony comes from a family of three boys.  I grew up on a ranch and we grew our own vegetables.  I’m very close to my sisters — so Tony and I both want a healthy, big family.

I love her taste now, so I’m excited to see her pregnancy style!

On a side note, is three kids a “big” family now? I guess it is considering the average…just doesn’t seem very big to me. I understand three kids are a lot of work, I just find it funny when people call that a “big” family.


I’m not a big fan of Eva’s, but her and Tony make a good couple and I hope she gets pregnant soon she sounds very family oriented which is really nice.

San Antonio is a wonderful place to visit and live. It has so much more of its culture perserved than many other cities.

Sounds like an idyllic plan for what will most definately be some very tall, well raised, beautiful kids.

Based on her recent pictures (seen having dinner with Victoria Beckham & others) Eva looks rather pregnant.

I love eva, she is so pretty and a I love her on DH. Can’t wait to see when she has a baby. Andria yea I have heard a lot of people once they have 3 kids, consider it a big family. The average family is two kids, and with a lot of people having careers plus raising kids, 3 kids is a pretty decent size family. I remember victoria beckham saying how she has 3 kids, and it feels like a lot, and I also remember kelly ripa and brooke burke saying that too, after 3 kids.

I give this phony union 1 year tops. He is way too young to commit. He’s tappin’ everything with 2 tits and a heartbeat..pullllleeeeeeeeeeze.

You are all funny. The truth here is not tolerated. You are afraid that if you allow all comments to be posted, the celebrities wont support this site and allow their pics to be on here…. then where would that leave you? So, only sappy, sugar coated comments are allowed. The fact that Eva’s husband Tony is cheating on her is not allowed on here…oh well. there are other sites that keep it real…. Did you that Angelina Jolie has 4 nannies? No wonder she looks fabulous…you want us readers to see pics of her alone with her kids. puleeze. She is addicted to kids..it brings her attention.

I am one of 6 kids, so 3 kids doesn’t seen big at all to me! I wouldn’t consider it a big family until the 5th kid personally, but that’s just me!

Legemc – I’m one of nine and also (for some arbitrary reason) consider five to be the cut off for “big” family. I know three is a lot and that most people notice a BIG difference between two and three as far as the amount of work, but when people say “big family” I think at least five…funny that we think the same!🙂

I think for celebrities, the reason they think 3 or 4 kids is a big family, is because how many big time celebrities do you see with a big careers having 5-6 kids, besides angelina and brad. Think of all the celebrities, a lot of them don’t have that many kids, most of them have an average amount. Only time I see celebrities have like 5-6 kids is in the cases of men like rod stewart or donald trump, that were married quite a few times, so with each wife they had children, but for female celebrities, you will usually never see them pregnant or having that many children.

New Yorker- Based on her recent comments, I’m guessing she’s probably just been indulging in some of her favorite foods. When pregnancy rumors were floating around her a few monhts ago, she commented that she had been eating a lot and thus had gained weight (even saying that she was allowing herself to indulge because of the writer’s strike that was going on at the time).

She also said that she will be “yelling it from the highest mountain” when she’s pregnant, because she will be “so happy”. Therefore, I doubt she’s pregnant right now.

I’m guessing she’s either been indulging, like I explained earlier, or that she simply hasn’t lost the weight she gained during the writer’s strike yet.

I also want to point out that Eva has said that she wants to hold off on having a baby for awhile because she wants to concentrate on work right now (Jennifer Garner said the same thing last summer when there was speculation that she was pregnant).

CelebBabyLover on

I forget to mention one other thing: I believe that Mark Cherry, the producer of Desperate Housewives, has strongly discouraged the DH cast from getting pregnant (he made that statement shortly after Marcia Cross announced her pregnancy with Eden and Savannah. He basically said, “Please, no more pregnancies! It’s really hard to hide them!”).
