Victoria Beckham was on hand to support pregnant friend Eva Longoria on Monday as the Desperate Housewives star received her official star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The 43-year old fashion designer occupied a front row seat as an emotional Eva accepted the accolade as recognition of her two decade career as an actress and activist.

Sporting a tasteful cream dress, Victoria looked typically stylish after settling into her seat alongside singer Ricky Martin, who also joined the ceremony on Hollywood Boulevard.

Meanwhile Eva, 43 - who confirmed her pregnancy in December - drew attention to her growing baby bump in a thigh-skimming black lace minidress as she took her place on a specially erected stage.

Evidently overwhelmed, the Latina actress wiped away tears while thanking those who have helped her career.

Other guests in hand to support Eva included fellow Desperate Housewife Felicity Huffman, Overboard co-star Anna Faris and proud husband José Antonio Bastón, who gave his wife a loving kiss after joining her on the red carpet.

Anna, Felicity and Ricky were on hand to share a series of humourous anecdotes, and there were belly laughs as they recounted their respective relationships with Eva.

Felicity, with whom Eva co-starred in eight successful seasons of Desperate Housewives, later amused the actress by pretending to faint at her feet as they posed in front of her Hollywood star.

Melanie Griffith was also on hand to congratulate Eva on her achievement, and the veteran star caught the eye in a simple black skirt and knee-high boots.

Taking to Twitter later that day, the actress admitted she was still stunned by the prestigious honour.

'What a dream come true today! Receiving my star on the Walk of Fame is an honor I can’t even believe I’m going to experience!' she wrote.

'Can’t wait to join all the legends and even more so, can’t wait for all of y’all to go and visit it!'

Eva is expecting her first child, but the newborn will be her husband's fourth.

He shares daughter Natalia, 22, and 14-year-old twins, Mariana and Jose, with ex-wife Natalia Esperón.

And despite being seven-months pregnant, Eva is still hard at work in the director's chair.

She has been working rigorously in Miami to produce ABC's Grand Hotel set to air during pilot season.

Eva is also currently doing a press run for her new movie Overboard.

The comedic film features Anna, whose character takes revenge on her wealthy employer after he falls off the side of his massive yacht and experiences a bout of amnesia.

The film is scheduled for release on April 20.
