Our favorite cheeseball, Mario Lopez, just announced that he is expecting his first child with his girlfriend of over a year, 28-year-old Courtney Mazza. The duo met when Lopez starred for a brief stint in the Broadway show, A Chorus Line.

Lopez, 36, is super psyched about becoming a dad, saying, "Courtney and I couldn't be more excited. I've waited my whole life to be a dad, this is a true blessing. I am looking forward to sharing this experience with my family." Although Lopez is a notorious ladies man, it seems like the Casanova may be ready to settle down and get dirty with some diaper duty. He told People.com "I grew up in a large family. I'm fired up! I don't know what we're having. I'm going to wait to see [the baby's gender] so it will be a surprise."

Boy or girl, we're sure that with a papi like Lopez, Mazza is going to have one super cute baby. Congrats to the happy couple!

Mariela Rosario,

I'm a raging opinionista and I love to share my ramblings on everything from pop culture to food to stuff that makes me laugh & cry! I've worked in all types of media (TV, film, print) and was previously the online editor at Latina magazine before joining Mamás Latinas. On most nights you can find me working my way through my library of cookbooks or playing with my puppy Lola (my only child so far). I have a wonderful hubby who shares my passion for any and all kinds of travel. Together, we've formed a semi-professional wine drinking team.
