Mario Lopez Is Going To Be A Dad!

Update: It’s official, those adorable dimples will live on! “I’m really excited. I’m happy. I can’t wait to be a dad,” Mario Lopez tells People. As we reported earlier today, Lopez, 36, and his girlfriend, actress Courtney Mazza, 28, are expecting their first child. So is the Extra TV host ready for diaper duty? “Of course,” Lopez says. “I grew up in a large family. I’m fired up! I don’t know what we’re having. I’m going to wait to see [the baby’s gender] so it will be a surprise.”

Saved By the Bell alum Mario Lopez, who now hosts Extra, is expecting his first child with girlfriend, Broadway dancer Courtney Laine Mazza, Star reports.

“Mario is over the moon with joy since finding out he’s having a baby,” a family friend says. “She’s approximately three months pregnant and is healthy and happy.”

The 36-year-old reportedly announced their happy news at a Super Bowl last month. “With a huge smile on his face and surrounded by friends and family, Mario announced he was having a baby and handed out pricey cigars. After the initial shock, everyone was thrilled by the news, giving Mario hugs and high-fives.”

Mario’s mom Elvira is said to be thrilled about the news. “She’s beaming and can’t stop talking about her new grandchild,” the family friend says. “She always wanted Mario to have children and keeps saying, ‘It’s about time. He isn’t getting any younger!’”

Mario — who was very briefly married to Ali Landry — isn’t likely to rush down the aisle with Courtney, whom he started dating in 2009 after he split with his Dancing with the Stars partner Karina Smirnoff. “Although the baby news has thrilled Mario, he isn’t making any marriage plans… yet.”

Mario’s grandfather Rafael Trasvina confirmed Mario’s baby news. “I am very excited that Mario and Courtney are having a baby. I don’t know if they are having a boy or a girl — we have to wait until the baby is born — but I am very happy for them.”

    So, why can’t he get married? Do it for the baby. I am not saying that every couple that gets pregnant should have a baby. It just seems to me that if they are still together and happy why not get married?

      if Mario wasnt prepared to propose before the news of a baby then he shouldnt do it just b/c of a baby. What woman wants to know that they got married b/c a baby came? It should be b/c he wants to ask the question, not b/c he feels hes obligated to ask the question.

        Exactly, I completely agree. Too many times I’ve seen marriages where the couple only got married because of being pregnant, end up in disaster with someone cheating on the other, and a messy divorce/scandal later on, resulting in an innocent child being hurt the most because of it. A child should grow up in a warm, loving home where the parents genuinely love each other and aren’t married to each other, simply because the girl got pregnant. Now I was raised devoutly Catholic, so if I were in this situation, my parents would make the guy marry me (although, I’m 22, so they can’t really MAKE me do anything anymore lol). But, I still don’t believe getting married solely because the girl is pregnant is the right reason to get married, and I think that’s asking for trouble later on. Marriage doesn’t guarantee anything anymore, because people don’t take their vows seriously, and have lost all respect for the institution. Just look at all the married men in Hollywood and professional sports who cheat on their wives all the time. If Mario and Courtney don’t want to get married yet, then that’s fine. They should wait it out, until they do feel ready for it. Having children outside of marriage isn’t so taboo anymore, anyway.

    Great for Mario – let’s see – dated his first wife for 4-6 years, married her and within 3 weeks he was sleeping around on her and they divorced. Oh – yes, he’s Catholic and goes to CHURCH every Sunday! Now, let’s have a baby out of wedlock. We’re so excited for you.
