Eva Longoria will soon be busy planning a wedding, but she’s also spent some time contemplating starting a family as well.

“I just turned 40, so I have thought, ‘Is time running out?’ ” the former Desperate Housewives actress says in the current issue of PEOPLE. “I should be thinking about [children], but I feel like my life is full.”

One thing filling her life aside from her fiancé José “Pepe” Bastón, are his three children from a previous marriage.

“They’ve been such a gift in my life. I don’t feel like we are lacking because we don’t have a baby,” says Longoria, whose new NBC comedy, Telenovela, premieres Jan. 4 at 8:30 p.m.

Not that she’s ruled out the possibility of having a child of her own.

“We are fulfilled,” she says of life with Bastón. “If there is anything else to come, it would be icing on the cake.”
