Eva Longoria gets parenting advice from Desperate Housewives alums Marcia Cross and Felicity Huffman

Although Eva Longoria can probably pen down an entire book about acting, directing and designing, the topic of parenting and babies are something she's still learning the ropes of.

The Desperate Housewives star may have got a lot of experience with older kids, thanks to husband Jose Baston, but dealing with young ones is still unchartered territory for her.

“I’m not an expert,” the 42-year-old told Us Weekly in a recent interview. But lucky for her, her Desperate Housewives co-stars have come to her rescue with parenting and childbirth advice.

“Oh my gosh, Marcia and Felicity have given me advice,” Longoria told the outlet.

Though the series that ran from 2004 to 2012 went off the air many years ago, the women constantly keep in touch with each other. “We talk a lot,” Longoria revealed. “They’re always supportive and amazing moms.”

Longoria also admitted to the fact that she and husband Jose Baston, 49, still haven’t found a suitable moniker.

However, it is quite understandable considering how busy Longoria is with her Namesake Fashion Collection with HSN that premieres on March 22.

“We have an amazing design team that follows trends, not only in styles, but in colors,” Longoria explained. She’s especially excited about the jeans.

“I like high-rise because no woman wants a muffin top and then on our denim we do this power sculpt pocket which gives the illusion of a perky bum.”

When asked about her pregnancy style, Longoria has only one rule. “I’m not a fan of empire waist or A-Line things,” she told the publication. Instead, she usually tends to go for jumpsuits and bomber jackets.

“I’ve been searching, ‘Great maternity wear’ and it’s not there,” she said. But Longoria has no plans to launch such a range, even though people have asked her if she’s doing a maternity line. “I’m like, ‘I’m not Jessica Alba. I don’t have three kids.’ I think I’m not quite in the mommy group just yet!”

But her go-to person for parenting advice? It's none other than Kerry Washington. 

“Kerry has actually been one of my main friends that I’ve been leaning on during pregnancy,” Longoria told Access in an interview on Wednesday.

“She helped me find a baby nurse, and [figure out what] a doula is. She’s been an endless source of information.”
