Eva Longoria is organising a baby shower for Victoria Beckham.

The 'Desperate Housewives' star has reportedly joined forces with actress Kate Beckinsale to throw a lavish bash for their friend - who is currently expecting her fourth child with soccer star husband David Beckham - that will also be a farewell party for The Fashion designer and her children Brooklyn, 11, Romeo, eight, and five-year-old Cruz, who are heading to England to be with David while he is training there.

A source told more! magazine: "Eva Longoria and Kate Beckinsale are organising a little get together so they can congratulate Victoria, but also say goodbye.

"They're really sad that there's a chance she's going to be away from Los Angeles for so long. But there's happy news too, with the pregnancy.

"They're planning on getting all their mutual friends together for tea and cakes at Eva's."

Eva - who split from her husband Tony Parker in November - has promised to spare no expense for the party, which will be held at her Los Angeles mansion, and is even having her friend's favourite treats flown in from Europe.

The source added: "She's planning to lay on cupcakes and Laduree macaroons, which she's getting flown over from France because she knows Victoria's absolutely loves them."
