Dancing with the Stars alum and The X Factor host, Mario Lopez and his wife, Courtney, welcomed their second child, a bouncing baby boy Monday, September 9, in Los Angeles. The proud papa took to Twitter to announce the arrival of his latest addition.
“It’s a boy!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Please welcome Dominic Lopez to the world!” the TV host and actor, tweeted. “Couldn’t be happier @CourtneyMLopez & baby are doing just fine…:)”
The former host of America’s Best Dance Crew, already father to Gia, 3, got his wish for a healthy baby boy this week. “I already have a girl, so if we have a boy that would be nice,” he said shortly after making the announcement in February. “But I won’t be disappointed if we don’t.”
In a statement the couple said that Dominic is a “healthy” 7 lbs., 2 oz., and “mother and baby are doing fine”.
Mario Lopez and his wife, actress and dancer, Courtney began dating in 2008, shortly after his split from girlfriend of 2 years and his season 3 Dancing with the Stars partner, Karina Smirnoff. They welcomed Gia in 2010 and were married in Mexico in 2012.
The happy couple’s decision to keep the baby’s sex a secret, did not sit well with his big-sister-to-be. When they made the announcement that Courtney was pregnant again, Mario said, “She’s pointing at the baby and saying, ‘There’s a baby in there. She wants to know if it’s a boy or a girl, but we don’t know because we’re waiting to find out. That’s kind of tough sometimes, we just don’t know!”
