As her July 7 wedding to Tony Parker draws nearer, Eva Longoria has a surprise to spring on the event’s entertainer.
“My friend Kenny [Chesney] is going to sing at my wedding, the Desperate Housewives star tells Cosmopolitan for its April issue. Except there’s one snag: “He just doesn’t know it yet,” Longoria admits.
As for what is already planned, Longoria, 31, looks forward to having a family, though when it will start may still be open to discussion.
“I never had a timeline for my life. I didn’t say I wanted to be married at 28 and have three kids by the time I was 32,” she says. “I do want to have a family at some point. I also want to adopt. I don’t feel pressure to have kids because I know there are so many out there.”
Asked what excites her most about the wedding to come, Longoria exclaims, “My dress, my dress, my dress! I wish I could wear 10 dresses to my wedding. It’s so sad that you put it in storage and then never see it again.”
She has a remedy for that, though: “I am going to sleep in mine after I wear it.”
Longoria is far more serious when discussing how she and San Antonio Spurs point guard Parker deal with conflict. “We never go to bed angry, which sometimes frustrates Tony because he’ll be like ‘Please. I have a game tomorrow. I need sleep,’ ” she says.
“Another rule we have is that nobody is ever right. I don’t need to be right. I just want to be understood. The same goes for him,” she adds.
One argument they don’t have, she says, is over her male pals. “I get so much crap for having friends like Jamie Foxx and Mario Lopez, who are like brothers to me. It’s difficult when you’re in an insecure relationship or if your partner doesn’t know where he stands with you. That’s not how it is with [Tony and me].”
