Mario Lopez is preparing to pull double daddy duty…
The 39-year-old Mexican American television host and his wife Courtney Mazza are expecting their second child, which is due in late summer.
Lopez and Mazza confirmed the news on his syndicated entertainment show Extra on Tuesday.
“The Lopez family is having another baby,” he professed when announcing the news. “I am the happiest father in the world. We cannot wait to welcome baby Lopez number two into our lives.”
Lopez and Mazza were joined by the daughter Gia, 2, who rocked a “Big Sister Gia” tee when her parents made the announcement. Immediately after, the couple were presented with a surprise baby shower complete with balloons and gifts.
The X Factor host met Mazza when they appeared together in A Chorus Line on Broadway back in 2006. They began dating in 2008 before finally getting married last December at a beach ceremony in Mexico.
After tying the knot, Lopez said he wanted to expand his family very soon.
“We’re working on that,” he told People magazine in December. “Right after the wedding. We’ll wait for the guests to leave and then we’re getting right on that!”
