Mario Lopez is to become a father again.
The 39-year-old X Factor USA host and his wife Courtney Mazza announced they are expecting their second baby.
The couple are already parents to two-year-old daughter Gia Francesca.
The presenter made the announcement on entertainment show Extra which he hosts, with little Gia appearing onscreen bearing a sign reading: “I’m going to be a big sister.”
“I am the happiest father in the world,” said Mario. “We cannot wait to welcome baby Lopez number two into our lives.”
People reports that the family then celebrated with a surprise baby shower complete with balloons, gifts and guests.
Courtney told Us Weekly she is due at around the same time as Gia’s birthday on 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,” she laughed.
“Right now, I’m really craving Cap’n Crunch cereal. But I try to keep it in moderation and not go too overboard.”
Mario and Courtney, who married back in December in Mexico, have previously made no secret of their desire to expand their family.
“We’re working on that. Right after the wedding,” he told People at the time.
“We’ll wait for the guests to leave and then we’re getting right on that!”
