Mario Lopez, 36, and his longtime girlfriend Courtney Mazza, 28, welcomed a baby girl over the weekend!

The little girl—named Gia Francesca Lopez—weighed in at a little over 6 lbs when she was born in Burbank, CA on Saturday, September 11.

"We are so overjoyed. What an amazing, wonderful and overwhelming experience to welcome our daughter into the world," Mario told Extra TV. Gia is the first child for both Lopez and Mazza. Mario, and actress Courtney Mazza first met back in 2008 when the two starred in A Chorus Line on Broadway together. There might be nuptials in the near future for the couple, Lopez hinted over the summer that a wedding was "in the works."

The television host will begin filming a new VH1 reality series soon. The show will focus on Lopez's trials and tribulations as he figures out how to be a daddy. Lopez recently tweeted that the show may be called, Mario Lopez: Saved by the Baby.

Both baby and mama are doing well. Congrats to the new parents!

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.
