Eva Longoria eager to have kids

London: Actress Eva Longoria is eager to start a family and have children.

The "Desperate Housewives" star - who split from husband Tony Parker last year after three years of marriage, said she would love to start a family one day as being a mother is something she`s always wanted, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

"I want to have kids and be a mom," she said in an interview to Rachael Ray Show.

Meanwhile, the actress seems to have found love again in Penelope Cruz`s younger brother Eduardo Cruz, though she admits she is not good at dating.

"I`m not very approachable. I`m not good with dating, I get really nervous. It`s probably strange that I`ve never been a dater. I`ve been married or in a relationship, and so this is going to be, you know, scary."
