Mario And Courtney Lopez Make Room For Baby Number 2!

PUBLISHED ON 02/20/2013

There's obviously something in the water in Hollywood — because this is quite possibly the biggest baby boom EVER! And today, it's Mario Lopez's turn.

Now, Mario is a man of many hats. He's host on X Factor, host of EXTRA, daddy to adorable 2-year-old daughter Gia Francesca and just recently, he became husband to wife Courtney. His latestventure? Soon-to-be daddy of two!

That's right, the former heartthrob I grew up knowing as A.C. Slater is expecting his second child with wife Courtney Lopez later this summer. The happy couple announced their baby news Tuesday morning on EXTRA, and Mario said, "I am the happiest father in the world. We cannot wait to welcome baby Lopez number two into our lives.” Big-sis-to-be Gia even made her own announcement, wearing a shirt that read "Big Sister Gia." How cuuuuteeee!?

Just after their December nuptials, Lopez made it known that expanding their brood was the next step. Shortly after saying "I do," he told guests of his plan to have another baby: "We're working on that. Right after the wedding. We'll wait for the guests to leave and then we're getting right on that!"

Talk about a go-getter!

Congratulations to the happy couple and Gia!
