London: `Desperate Housewives` star Eva Longoria says she is thrilled to be godmother to David and Victoria Beckham`s baby daughter, Harper.
The 37-year-old soccer star and his fashion designer wife will christen the 10-month-old later this year and have asked Longoria to play an important role in their little girl`s life, reported Mirror online.
"Victoria asked me to be Harper`s godmother and of course I said yes. I`m absolutely thrilled. Harper is simply adorable," she said.
Victoria and Eva became close friends since the Beckhams moved to Los Angeles in 2007 and she recently described Harper as a "chunky monkey".
David and Victoria, who also have sons Brooklyn, 13, Romeo, nine, and seven-year-old Cruz together, will baptise Harper in a lavish ceremony at their UK home and guests are expected to include Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes and Will Smith.
"David and Victoria feel it`s important Harper is christened. And they wanted the ceremony in the UK," a source said.
