Eva Longoria Parker looks to her friend Victoria Beckham for relationship advice – she wants her marriage to be as successful as the fashion designer’s.

The former Spice Girls singer wed soccer ace David Beckham in 1999 and they share three young sons, Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz.

In 2007 they moved to Los Angeles and Victoria struck up a close friendship with the Desperate Housewives actress, who married basketball player Tony Parker the same year.

And Longoria Parker admires the Beckhams’ solid union.

She tells Britain’s Sunday Mirror newspaper, “Victoria’s a lovely woman. Both our husbands are sports stars and they both travel, and Victoria’s had some great advice for me on how to cope with that.

“She’s a great mother, too. If you ever see her around her kids, you’ll see that everything – everything – is about them and David. She’s a good role model. I really want my marriage to be like hers.”
