Nicollette bonds with pal's baby as Marcia shops with the twins

31 MARCH 2008
With her racy outfits and man-eating reputation, Nicollette Sheridan's onscreen character Edie Britt is far from mumsy. However, in real life the Desperate Housewives star was more than happy to step into a mothering role as she spent time with a gal pal and her baby over the weekend.

Casually dressed for a day browsing the stores in Beverly Hills, the West Sussex born actress - who's engaged to American crooner Michael Bolton - seemed to be enjoying her baby-bonding session in the LA sunshine. The 44-year-old, who was the focus of pregnancy reports last November, has denied she's planning on starting a family of her own any time soon.

"We're very, very happy," she says of her relationship with the Georgia On My Mind singer, quipping: "and I'm looking forward to having my first-born when I'm 70!".

One Desperate Housewives star enjoying motherhood for real, though, is flame-haired Marcia Cross. The proud mum, who says she can't bear to spend time apart from her one-year-old twins Eden and Savannah, took them with her to browse a home interiors store in Santa Monica.

"If I work a couple of long days... I have the girls come to the set," she reveals. "Though I cant really be with them, I can at least change a diaper or play with them for a minute and then run back out... They're so cute. Theyre just... thriving. Im madly in love with them!"
