Eva Longoria and Tony Parker are standing by their marriage as rumors of infidelity by the NBA star hit Internet gossip sites Wednesday.

“I love my wife,” Parker said in a statement to PEOPLE. “She’s the best thing in my life, and I have never been happier.” Longoria, who took Parker’s name this year after their July nuptials, added, “Tony has been nothing short of the perfect husband.”

Earlier, Longoria’s rep Liza Anderson had called the allegations “completely, 100 percent false and untrue.”
