Eva Longoria would love to have a child some day, but that does not mean she will have a have a baby on her own.
The actress appears on the cover of Parade and opens up about her future family plans as well as her latest projects.
"I've always wanted a family," the Devious Maids producer tells the magazine. "I believe in family. But children are a product of love. So I don't think I'll go off and have a baby by myself. I do not have that need to procreate."
As for getting older—the Texas beauty recently celebrated her 39th birthday—Longoria would "never want to repeat" her 20s and has no worries about aging.
"I welcome age with open arms because I want to evolve as a human being, gain more wisdom," the Desperate Housewives star admits. "I have so much more to do! And the only way you do that is with age."
Longoria has shifted from appearing in front of the camera and is now focusing on appearing behind-the-scenes, as a producer and director.
"Had I known how hard acting was going to be, I wouldn't have done it," Longoria explains. "There's no recipe for success, no rhyme or reason why certain actors are famous and others aren't. As an actor, you kind of just say your lines and cross your fingers."
