Mario Lopez and his wife, Courtney Mazza, are expecting their second child! The X Factor host spoke with Extra about the impending bundle of joy, along with explaining the news to his two year old. Read what the couple had to say below!
Mario Lopez makes some adorable kids, as evidenced by his first daughter, two year old Gia, who served as the flower girl in her parent’s wedding. Mario and Courtney tied the knot back in December at a beautiful beach-meets-winter-wonderland themed event. This is the second marriage for Mario, who previously wed Ali Landry, only to annul the wedding weeks later. This is the first marriage for Courtney.
Mario revealed the news to Extra, saying, “I am the happiest father in the world. We cannot wait to welcome Baby Lopez No. 2 into our lives.” Gia also appeared on the show, holding a sign that said, “I’m going to be a big sister!”
Courtney Mazza spoke with US Weekly about the exciting news. When is the bundle expected to arrive? “I’m due around Gia’s birthday [September 11],” Mazza said. When asked about how she was feeling, Mazza said, “I’m in that stage where I can’t fit into my regular clothes anymore but I can’t fit into maternity clothes yet either. But I’m good, it’s all good!”
Mazza did admit that she had some funny cravings! “Right now, I’m really craving Cap’n Crunch cereal! But I try to keep it in moderation and not go too overboard.”
Mario added, “I’m so excited. I can’t take it!” Mario gushed.
The couple is still trying to explain the future addition to Gia. Mario said, “We’re trying to explain it to her, so now she points at Courtney’s belly and says, ‘Baby baby!’ Once mama really starts popping out I think she’ll understand more . . . I can’t wait to expand the Lopez family!”
