Nuptials will take place in France


"Desperate Housewives" star Eva Longoria has taken the next step with Tony Parker.

"Eva and Tony are officially engaged," the actress' rep, Liza Anderson, tells People. "The couple have never been happier."

The diminutive actress and the San Antonio Spurs point guard first met in November 2004, and despite many rumors about a budding relationship, only confirmed they were dating in 2005.

Parker surprised Longoria with the "romantic and perfect" proposal on Wednesday night, when he flew into Los Angeles after his game. They plan to marry in France next summer in a "big, happy ceremony with lots of family and friends."

Parker, 24, was raised in France and captained the French national basketball team before joining the Spurs.

Longoria, 31, was previously married to "General Hospital" star Tyler Christopher from 2002 to 2004. She currently plays adulteress Gabrielle Solis on ABC's "Desperate Housewives," and was seen on the big screen opposite Michael Douglas and Kiefer Sutherland in "The Sentinel" and opposite Christian Bale in "Harsh Times."
