Congratulations are in order for Mario Lopez’s family!
The actor and TV host recently revealed that his wife, actress Courtney Laine Mazza, is pregnant. Both Mario and Courtney shared the big news on Instagram on January 11.
“Oh BABY!! Here we go again…🤰🏻 #LopezPartyOfFive #DebutingInJuly,” Courtney captioned her post. She shared four photos of the family celebrating their news: one of Mario kissing her burgeoning baby bump, one of their daughter wearing a “Best Big Sister” shirt, one of their son wearing a “Best Big Brother” shirt, and one of their dog wearing a “Big Brother” outfit.
The Saved by the Bell alum announced the news with a sweet video sharing a “Lopez Family update.” In the clip, Mario has each of his kids update his followers on what’s going on in their lives before turning to Courtney, who reveals her pregnancy.
“We are adding to the team! We’re gonna be a party of five,” Mario said. “We don’t know what we’re having… if it’s gonna be a boy or a girl.”
The new baby will join his or her two older siblings: sister Gia, 8, and brother Dominic, 5. The 45-year-old Extra host (who was previously married to actress Ali Landry for two weeks in 2004) married Courtney in December 2012 after meeting in 2008.
In 2013, Courtney (who was then pregnant with Dominic) told Us Weekly that Mario was trying to “convince” her to have four kids total. “I said I would have three — that was pushing it,” she admitted. Clearly, Courtney came around on the matter of having three kids, because they all seem to be completely ecstatic about their upcoming addition.
