Keep an eye out for a new name in the Desperate Housewives credits: Eva Longoria Parker. The actress, 32, has taken her husband Tony Parker's surname, she tells E! News.

"I completely adopted the new name and I love it ... I'm a Parker now," she said Thursday at the Padres Contra El Cáncer (Parents Against Cancer) annual benefit in Los Angeles. "I love every bit of it ... I like the tradition of changing the name."

Not to mention the reception she gets in Texas – they have a home there as Parker, 25, plays for the San Antonio Spurs – where she's called Mrs. Parker. "It's really nice to hear," she says. "Especially in Texas. Everyone is really respectful there."

The couple wed in France in July, with a small civil ceremony on July 6, followed by a bigger religious ceremony the next day and a star-studded bash at a country estate.

So, are more little Parkers in store for the newlyweds – in reality or on Longoria-Parker's hit show? As the actress told reporters at Vogue's Fashion Mexico gala Wednesday in Mexico City, "Not for me, and not for Gabrielle."
