Eva Longoria Parker says her husband is great at organising romantic surprises.
She said: "He does great birthdays and great anniversary surprises all the time. We kind of battle it out with surprises."
Eva - who at 35 is seven years older than her husband - also claims marriage has changed the couple's relationship for the better.
She explained to Tatler magazine: "It changes everything. I like the security and the sacredness of marriage. It's a beautiful union. And yeah we're partners in life so you're always thinking of someone else in everything you do."
However, the actress admits their long distance relationship - Tony plays basketball for the San Antonio Spurs, while Eva is based in Hollywood for her work - is not ideal, even though it gives her a chance to catch up on her reading.
She said: "My husband's here (in Los Angeles) now, he's here for three months with me and then he starts his season and that's when I start going back and forth to San Antonio. I'm there every weekend.
"I love planes, I love travelling. It's the only time I get to read - and I have a lot of reading to do."
