Eva Longoria fell for basketball star Tony Parker after he invited her dad on their date.
The 'Desperate Housewives' beauty - who insists she isn't anything like her onscreen character, man-eating Gabriella Solis - admits she is smitten with the 6ft 3" San Antonio Spurs player.
Petite Eva, who has been dating the athlete for four months, is quoted in Britain's Sunday Mirror newspaper as saying: "Yes, I'm in love. Tony is a wonderful, amazing person.
"He might be much, much taller and bigger than me but it's not a problem. Love is blind."
She added: "Everyone laughs when I say I met Tony in the Spurs locker room.
"I'd taken my dad to a game as he has been a Spurs fan all his life and so have I. Tony was very shy but he asked me out for dinner and invited my dad to join us. That was it for me."
Meanwhile the brunette beauty says she may have changed her mind about marriage after meeting hunky Tony.
The screen star had insisted she would never tie-the-knot again after her first marriage to soap actor Tyler Christopher collapsed.
But when asked if she would consider it again she revealed: "I love Tony. So who knows?"
