When Tony Parker threw a surprise party to celebrate his wife Eva Longoria Parker's 33rd birthday, she had no idea what hit her. On her way back from a birthday party in Miami, the actress arrived at the San Antonio airport Sunday without any clue as to what the basketball player had in store for her.

Longoria Parker was welcomed back to her hometown with a high-profile bash, complete with surprise visits from friends and family, a scavenger hunt, a luxurious birthday dinner and a real-life version of the board game Clue.

“Colonel Mustard, Professor Plum, all of them were there,” a guest told “But there's no Tony. Although there was a Spurs coyote – the Spurs mascot – in the crowd.” It turns out that the Desperate Housewives (ABC) star's husband was actually inside the costume, but he didn't reveal his true identity until later in the evening, after his wife had been taken to a hotel to hang out with friends.

“In walks the Spurs coyote again,” the guest said. “But it's Tony in the coyote costume! He's been in the coyote costume the whole day. He was hot, he was sweating, he was in love with his wife.” The impressive surprise party was a romantic gesture organized completely by Parker. The guests were impressed that he was able to pull off such an elaborate bash.
