Eva's Big Engagement Surprise

Eva's Big Engagement Surprise

Eva was busy flashing her rock this week at lunch with Jamie Foxx in LA. Then again, the five-carat emerald-cut diamond is hard not to notice. We were so happy to hear that Eva and Tony had gotten engaged, especially after the trouble they were going through recently. But Eva says their problems were overblown. Still she was totally taken aback when he popped the question. Here's more:

"It was a big surprise!" Longoria tells PEOPLE in its new issue.

"I was heading home from a long day on the (Desperate Housewives) set. He had been playing in Utah, so I was just shocked to see him in L.A. I thought it was so weird, sort of, 'Why are you here? What's going on? Oh my God! It's happening!' "

There at Longoria's home in the early-morning hours, surrounded by rose petals and candles, Parker fell to one knee – "I'm a traditional guy," he says – and, having already told both of their families, popped the question.

"I cried my eyes out," says Longoria. "I was mostly touched by how nervous he was. I was like, 'You know I'm going to say yes. Why are you so nervous?' But I guess every man gets nervous at that point."

No way, says Parker: "I knew it was right. We've been talking for months about it, and I just knew. It was time."

And so it went that the Texas-bred actress, 31, and the French-raised San Antonio Spurs point guard, 24, took their two-year relationship to the next level – something they quickly celebrated with close friends, who gathered at Longoria's L.A. home soon after the proposal.

Eva also said that telling her DH pals Marcia Cross and Felicity Huffman "was really exciting." They were probably so happy that Eva and Tony had moved past the bad stuff. As for that, Eva says she and Tony's motto is always, "Breaking up is not an option." That's a good way to keep that rock on your finger for good, Eva!

I can't believe ML would want to be with her. I don't care for her, she is too fake. She will never marry Tony.

"Eva says their problems were overblown" Yeah, because she decided to get her publicist to issue a statement how they were having problems!

I , honestly, would not marry a man that young! I met my husband when he was 21, and I would not marry hin until he was 28!I made him wait, in case he changed his mind through growing pains.

Wow I didn't realize he is only 24. Men aren't ready until they're at least 28. Big mistake.

I love the memory of how nervous my fiance got-- he was trembling and his voice was wavering as he got down on one knee. It's my most poignant memory of the proposal. And I cried. Good luck to Tony and Eva!

If you read my entire comment, it said "of course she has a right to get re-married and be happy again."

"She's f'ed half of Hollywood" That's quite an exaggeration ugagirl... Besides, who's to say people don't deserve to be happy second time around?

Give me a break. She's been married before & she is acting like the blushing bride. I mean, of course she has a right to get re-married and be happy again, etc. I just think it's kind of tacky that she's gushing about her engagement w/ rose petals and such like she's 21 or something & talking about how "traditional" they are. This is definitely not this ho's first time around the block. She's f'ed half of Hollywood.

Love Tony... But I think the reason they hit a rough patch a couple of months ago is because she probably gave him and ultimatum about marrying her. They broke up then work things back together and he propose.

mario lopez is dirty, and i don't mean in a good way. every guy i've ever known with an ass that tight has been either bi or gay. anyhoo, i guess it's good that eva and tony are moving forward, making a real commitment. (sigh).
