Eva Longoria doesn't believe in having just one soul mate.

The former 'Desperate Housewives' actress - who split from ex-husband Tony Parker in November 2010 - doesn't think a soul mate is limited to just one person and says it doesn't always have to be romantic.

She said: ''I think you have many soul mates over a lifetime. And they're not all necessarily romantic. I think that your friends are your soul mates, too, and family members. You can have a lot of special connections with a lot of people.''

Eva, 37, also says she would like to become a mother in the future as it's something she's always wanted to do.

She said: ''You know I would love to have a family whenever the time comes to have one. I would love that.''

Despite her glamorous lifestyle, the brunette beauty says she's at her happiest when she's at her home in Texas.

She said: ''I'm most happy in Texas when I am home. I have a ranch there. We have a lot of cows and pigs and cats.''
