Desperate Housewives star Eva Longoria and Basketballer Tony Parker are engaged, according to People magazine.
“Eva and Tony are officially engaged,” Longoria’s publicist told People. “The couple have never been happier.”
Tony, 24, is a point guard for the NBA’s San Antonio Spurs, and met the San Antonio native Longoria in November 2004 after Eva told a local news reporter that Tony was her favorite.
Both appeared on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show on Thursday morning and confirmed the nuptial news.
According to their live interview, Tony flew into Los Angeles after the Spurs’ game against the Utah Jazz. He was waiting at Eva’s home when she came in from work around midnight and thus proposed.
Rough waters rose for the newly engaged pair when they briefly split in September. Now a summer wedding is said to be planned.
