Expectant parents Mario Lopez and Courtney Mazza seemed in great spirits yesterday as they were spotted out and about in New York City (May 5). Mario, 36, has more than a new baby on the way – he also has a new health and fitness book titled Extra Lean on the shelves. The health-conscious dad-to-be talked to PopEater about his hopes for a “chubby, healthy” babe and his plans for another book – on fatherhood!
On Courtney’s pregnancy: “She’s doing great. We’re five months along, and she’s looking great, feeling great. I’m trying to feed her as often as I can. I’d love a chubby, healthy baby. We’re very excited!”
On feeling some first-time father nerves: “I was actually looking for a book for a first-time father and couldn’t find one. I’ve decided I’m going to write one of my own. Guys want to help, too. There are tons of book for moms, but dads want to know what’s going on with the lady and the baby both emotionally and physically.”
On plans for a big family: “I hope so. I’m learning a lot about how difficult it is just to even get pregnant and all the things that can go wrong. I have a new respect for that whole process and miracle of birth.”
