Mario Lopez & Family Are A Grove Group

MTV’s America’s Best Dance Crew host Mario Lopez was all smiles as he strolled through The Grove in Los Angeles, Calif. with his two leading ladies Courtney Mazza and their nearly 2-year-old daughter Gia on Saturday (September 8).

It seems Mario’s ex-wife Ali Landry – who went through an emotional roller coaster following the split from her husband of two weeks in 2004 after learning of multiple alleged infidelities on his part – claims that his cheating ways were actually a blessing in disguise.

“A marriage is a very, very big deal, so it wasn’t just like, ‘Oh yeah, get married, get divorced.’ For me, my parents are still together. The sacrament of marriage for me is very, very important,” she tells Access Hollywood. “So I never even knew anyone who did that to someone else – didn’t even know that was possible, like [from] someone you trusted and loved. I was blindsided. The rug was pulled out from underneath me.”

“But that’s OK,” she continues.” It prepared me for my husband, who I really feel is a gift.”

“I feel like today, I am a better person because of it and I really look back and think that was the best thing that ever happened to me,” she adds. “It changed me as a woman, you know, just the way I sort of walk through this world. Something was really terrible, but something absolutely wonderful came from it. That’s all you can really ask for.”

      Do you even know she has Downs syndrome? She just looks like her dad to me and I haven’t heard anything that says she has Downs syndrome. Either way, beautiful little girl 🙂

    Kind of weird that this whole article is about Ali and not Mario and his family.

  • bianca

    i do not understand why someone would choose to hide the fact that their child has a disability. gia is beautiful and wonderful, and such a little blessing. i only wish that mario and courtney would speak up about it and use it to bring positive attention to disabilities and help other children like gia get the kind of care they need and deserve.

    • Lakesha

      Yeah, because they have no right to keep the very personal details of their daughter’s health to themselves…although I’m not sure why everyone else is soooo sure she has a disability.

      She doesn’t unless you are making photo diagnosis a reality.

      • bianca

        i am not making a photo diagnosis, i know a few of courtney’s relatives personally and i know for a FACT that she has a disability. that’s why i didn’t say the specific disability she has – it’s not my place. but i still don’t understand why they wouldn’t want to bring positive attention to it.

        • Lakesha

          However, it is your place to announce that she has a disability when the family has not?

        • Daisy

          YOU DON’T KNOW ANYONE IDIOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! go do something with your life.

    It’s Down Syndrome, not Down’s Syndrome. If we’re going to diagnose this little girl can we at least do it intelligently?

  • hcn

    I don’t think she has Down Syndrome. She looks perfectly normal to me. Idk why people are saying she has that ^ disease … :/ smh
