Congratulations to Mario Lopez and his wife Courtney who are expecting their second child! The pair only married last December in Punta Mita, Mexico, but they’re clearly committed to expanding the Lopez family and announced the news on Extra!

The couple already have their two year-old daughter Gia, and she was at The Grove with the pair, wearing a cute t-shirt that had the message ‘Big Sister Gia’ emblazoned on it. “I am the happiest father in the world” We cannot wait to welcome baby Lopez number two into our lives” Mario told Extra. Meanwhile, Courtney went into further detail with Us Weekly. "I'm due around Gia's birthday [September 11]. 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!"

She also went into detail about how they were explaining to Gia that she was going to have a new sibling to play with. "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!" Lopez is , of course, the current Extra and X Factor host, as well as a former cast member of long running 90’s teen comedy Saved By The Bell.
