In one of showbiz’s worst-kept secrets, Desperate Housewives star Eva Longoria is set to marry her French fiance in Paris.

Eva, who plays Gabrielle in Desperate Housewives, and basketball star Tony Parker have sent save-the-date cards to their nearest and dearest, naming the big day as July 7, according to US magazine People.

Although the cards apparently don’t state a time or location, they have an image of the Eiffel Tower on the cover and the pair are advising guests to make sure their passports are up to date.

Eva has previously talked about getting married in Tony’s native France, so it’s thought this could indicate an overseas wedding in Europe.

For now, guests are being told to wait for more details nearer the time, in order to try and keep security tight for the ceremony.

It is thought that Eva and Tony’s celebrity guest list will include the star’s TV co-stars Teri Hatcher, Marcia Cross, Felicity Huffman and Nicollette Sheridan, as well as close friends and family.
