Mario Lopez Gets Engaged in Mexico!

Mario Lopez is engaged! The Mexican actor popped the question to his girlfriend Courtney Mazza with a 5-carat ring over New Year's weekend in Ixtapa, Mexico, reports

"We took a walk alone as the sun was setting," Lopez tells the website. "I told Courtney that I wanted the mother of my children to have their last name. She was silent at first from shock, then she leaped for joy and did a little jete!"

The couple, who have been together since 2008 and are parents to 2-year-old Gia, plan to wed in Mexico later this year.

"Besides our daughter's birth, this was the best moment of my life!" Mazza, 28, tells 

Congratulations to the happy couple!
