EVA Longoria Parker thinks date nights are the key to a successful relationship.

The 'Desperate Housewives' star - who married basketball ace Tony Parker in 2007 - admitted fitting each other in around their busy schedules is not difficult as they love being with each other so much that they prioritise their relationship over everything else.

She explained: "Romance is rooted in love - we love each other very much - and also in humour. We have a lot of fun and we laugh a lot.

"We actually want to be together, so it's not a hard thing for us - we always have date nights. We prioritise each other in our lives and schedule our plans together so everything else falls in between.

"We live in a pretty normal way and enjoy spending time with our families. We don't let our jobs dictate how we live our lives."

However, Tony is not the only person the actress enjoys going on dates with - Eva also spends time on "girly dinner dates" with close friend Victoria Beckham.

She said: "We go shopping and do girly dinner dates. And when we're in Los Angeles Tony spends time with David. She's a great mum. Her kids are lovely."
