To add to the recent trend of celebrity babies, “The X Factor” host Mario Lopez and his beautiful wife Courtney Mazza are now the parents of a healthy baby boy. The proud papa announced the exciting news himself via Twitter on Sept. 9 as Dominic Lopez made his entrance into the world.
It sounded like the new daddy was in quite a rush as he made his first tweet about the upcoming birth saying, “Whoa.. Cutting it close. Just wrapped @TheXFactorUSA & I'm rushing to the hospital. Baby Lopez #2 is coming tonight! Baby better wait for me.”
Indeed the little guy did wait for him as Lopez got there in plenty of time to tweet the progression of the baby boy's birth. He said, “Waiting for the Dr…@CourtneyMLopez & I are ready to go! Is it a boy or a girl???” He also included a photo of the two of them all robed up and ready to go as he planted a sweet kiss on the expectant mother's cheek.
Lopez then made the official announcement about an hour later saying excitedly, "It's a boy!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Please welcome Dominic Lopez to the world! Couldn't be happier…@CourtneyMLopez & & baby are doing just fine... :)”
Baby Dominic joins his big sister Gia, who turns three on Sept. 11. The happy parents were married in a beautiful ceremony last December and announced their second pregnancy in February.
It is a good thing that the taping of the Fox reality show is done for now so that this happy family can enjoy some quality time together before Mario Lopez is expected to take over his live hosting duties.
“The X Factor” premieres this week on Wednesday and Thursday at 8 p.m. EST on Fox.
