It looks like the guest list at Mario Lopez’s wedding will be a long one…
The 38-year-old Mexican American actor and television host, who was just named one of the new co-hosts on Fox’s The X Factor, has closed a deal with TLC to televise his nuptials with Courtney Mazza.
The two-hour wedding special, which will be broadcast on the Discovery-owned cable channel on December 8, will feature the planning process as well as the fete with family and friends.
“Courtney and I already feel incredibly blessed to have found each other, and thank God for our beautiful daughter Gia,” says the Extra host. “Our family is looking forward to celebrating our wedding later this year, and know that TLC is the perfect partner to help us share our love and our special day with the rest of the world.”
In recent years, TLC has become a destination for wedding-related fare. Earlier this summer, Nick [Lachey] & Vanessa’s Dream Wedding special joined a TLC schedule that includes Say Yes to the Dress, I Found The Gown and Four Weddings.
News of an air date comes less than 24 hours after Fox confirmed Lopez would be joining Simon Cowell‘s The X Factor. He and Khloe Kardashian will co-host the show when it returns to its live format in November.
