Contrary to assertions that she’s in "no rush" to have a baby with husband Tony Parker, Desperate Housewives actress Eva Longoria Parker is in fact "desperately trying to get pregnant," says the show’s producer Mark Cherry.

And if she succeeds in her efforts, Mark says he’ll be among the first to know. "After they phone their doctor, she promised me I will be the next call," he says. For now, the 33-year-old actress may have to settle for being an on-screen mom, as her character plays a mother of two in the upcoming flash-forward season. "Eva is having a marvelous time playing her," Mark reveals.

Eva and Tony celebrated their first wedding anniversary last month.
