Is Eva Longoria Adopting Without Tony?
UPDATE: A source close to Longoria tells People magazine that rumors about the Desperate Housewives star planning to adopt a baby from Haiti are “not true.”
Will Eva Longoria be the next single female celebrity to adopt a child?
British newspaper the Daily Mail reports that the 35-year-old Desperate Housewives beauty, who earlier this month filed for divorce from her husband of three years, basketball star Tony Parker, will go forward with her plans to adopt a child, quite possibly from Haiti. According to a source,
“Eva had her heart set on adopting a child from Haiti. She so wants to be a mother. She wanted to adopt with Tony, but she’s happy to go ahead as a single parent and is very excited after what’s been a dark period.”
Longoria is said to have developed a growing interest in Haiti since engaging in fundraising efforts for the island following its devastating earthquake in January.
If Longoria—who filed for divorce from Parker on November 17 amid accusations of infidelity on his part—does indeed go forward with the adoption, she’ll be in good company, In recent years, both Madonna and Sandra Bullock have adopted children following breakups with their spouses.
