"Desperate Housewives" has decided to work Marcia Cross' real-life pregnancy into the show, according to reports.

Cross, who plays perfect-to-a-fault Bree on the hit series, announced last week that — at age 44 — she was due next April.

Now comes word from co-star Eva Longoria that producers have decided to make the expectant mother part of the show's plot.

"They are writing it in," Longoria told the TV magazine show "Access Hollywood."

Next question, naturally, is who will the Wisteria Lane father be?

In the second episode of the new season, Bree will marry a mysterious doctor named Orson, played by Kyle MacLachlan .

It would seem logical that he's the father but...

"I don't know," Eva says. "Who knows who is going to knock her up on our show!"

In real life, Cross is married to 48-year-old stockbroker Tom Mahoney.
