Still waiting on Marcia Cross to return that message you left for her in 2007? You're not alone.

Since giving birth to twins Eden and Savannah three years ago, the Desperate Housewives star says she's let a few things slide – like returning phone calls.

"I have a lot of friends that I haven't called in three years!" says Cross, who nonetheless is making room for something else on her plate: She's signed on as spokesperson for Mott's Medleys, a new fruit juice that contains additional fruits and vegetables.

The actress says she struggles with getting her finicky kids to eat their fruits and veggies. "One of my daughters just wants pasta and carbs, so you have to be sneaky," she says.

"They love to go out with me to have lunch or get a cup of coffee," the Desperate Housewives actress tells Celebrity Baby Blog. "This is a reflection of their mother – they say, 'Go to a café mama?' They tease me for my coffee drinking."

Marcia Cross: My Daughters Are Big Talkers

Life in Marcia Cross's household is one constant gabfest thanks to her chatty twin daughters Savannah and Eden.

"They are big talkers," Cross told PEOPLE at Mott's and Feeding America charity event in New York Monday. "They happen to be very verbal girls and I think that comes from me. Their mom is pretty verbal."

Now that her girls, who turned 2 last month, can express themselves, Cross, 46, enjoys every minute engaging them in conversation. "It's wonderful that they can tell me what's going on with them and have conversations. I just love it," said the Desperate Housewives star. "When we go to the park one of my daughters will say, 'The dog scares me mamma.' Or after their birthday party a few weeks ago, one of them said, 'Too many people mamma.' "

Marcia Cross's husband, stockbroker Tom Mahoney, has been diagnosed with cancer, PEOPLE exclusively confirms.

"He is currently under treatment and is responding very well," the actress's rep Heidi Slan says.

The two were married in June 2006, and have 23-month-old fraternal twin daughters, Eden and Savannah.

Cross has credited her husband's love and support for her own happiness. "I think that beauty comes from being happy and connected to the people we love," the actress told PEOPLE shortly after they were engaged. "And his love makes me feel beautiful."

Marcia Cross: I Considered Adoption & Sperm Donor

Originally posted 02/13/2008 04:30PM

With her fraternal twin daughters Eden and Savannah turning 1 on Feb. 20, Marcia Cross is recalling all the ways she struggled to have children.

"In my early 40s, I considered adoption, and I tried getting pregnant on my own through a sperm donor, but neither worked out," the Desperate Housewives star, now 45, tells Health magazine for its new issue.

Pregnancy was a top priority after she married stockbroker Tom Mahoney in June 2006. "We decided to skip our honeymoon and try in vitro after the wedding. I had already been through infertility treatments. It's very, very difficult to get pregnant in your 40s. It's costly and tough on your body and your relationship."

Marcia Cross: My Baby Girls Could Be President

Originally posted 01/25/2008 07:30AM

With no work on Wisteria Lane these days (thanks to the Hollywood writers' strike), Desperate Housewives's Marcia Cross put her free time to use this week, lobbying Congress to pass 12-year-old legislation for breast cancer patients.

"And I thought making movies was slow," Cross said of the "ridiculous" inaction on a bill that would end so-called "drive-through" mastectomies and guarantee patients up to 48 hours of recovery time in the hospital. Cross, together with Lifetime television, delivered Congress with 20 million signatures from the online petition at mylifetime.com – as her stockbroker husband, Tom Mahoney, proudly snapped photos.

Marcia Cross's Holiday Joy: Her 10-Month-Old Twins

Christmas came early for Marcia Cross.

"I'm deliriously happy!" the Desperate Housewives star, 45, told PEOPLE at the Beverly Hills Saks Fifth Avenue on Saturday. "It's scary to be this happy. Oh my god, I mean life is precarious, so I just value every day and every gift."

Speaking after she read from the book Snowpeople, to benefit St. Jude's Research Hospital (for every copy of the book sold, Saks will donate $2 to the St. Jude 2007 Thanks and Giving Campaign), Cross said the source of her holiday joy were her twin daughters, Eden and Savannah – who were cuddling with dad Tom Mahoney during the reading.
