'Sentinel' star Eva Longoria who is married to basketball star Tony Parker can't wait to have children of her own despite constantly being at the centre of rumours regarding the same.

'The 'Desperate Housewives' star has repeatedly been at the centre of pregnancy rumours after the petite actress put on weight for her role in the hit US show, Contactmusic reported.

To stop the rumour mills Longoria's husband Parker was forced to make an official statement earlier this year, insisting his wife was not expecting their first child.

He added he would be proud to make the announcement to the press once it happens, telling reporters, "We don't wanna hide it. I don't know why people keep asking us."

And now, the actress has talked about her family plans in an interview to US weekly.

Longoria said, "We can't wait to start a family. I'm so excited about that chapter in our lives and you'll know when it happens."

Eva portrayed a fashionista reluctant to embrace motherhood in the hit series 'Desperate Housewives'.
