Eva Longoria says that she and her boyfriend, NBA star Tony Parker, have some differences of opinion on certain issues – including having a child out of wedlock.
"I would. But Tony won't," the Desperate Housewives star, 31, tells Allure magazine, the Associated Press reports. "He's only been with one other person in his life."
As for their initial meeting, Longoria describes it as "lust at first sight." The actress and the French-born Parker, 23, a point guard for the San Antonio Spurs, first met in the team's locker room after a game.
"He's very sweet," she adds, of their relationship. "I'm the experienced one. I'm the teacher, especially about love. He's always telling me he's never met anyone who loves the way I do – wholly and freely and unconditionally."
Asked whether they have any immediate wedding plans, Longoria says, "No, no, no. But we know exactly what we want in our future. … Our children will speak French."
For his part, Parker gets a kick out of Longoria's "plucky" attitude, she also says, explaining: "Since I grew up in Texas, I'm like the people he's gotten used to around San Antonio instead of being a Hollywood actress who's selfish and arrogant and full of herself."
Next month, Longoria will costar with Michael Douglas, Kiefer Sutherland and Kim Basinger in the thriller The Sentinel.
