Woof, woof!

Mario Lopez says he hopes his unborn baby with girlfriend Courtney Mazza is as fun as his French bulldog puppy, Julio Cesar Chavez Lopez.

"If my baby turns out half as cool as my little dog, then we're set!" the Extra host, 36, tells Ryan Seacrest's KIIS-FM radio show. "I love my dog!"

"I am so excited dude, I'm fired up! I'm like a little kid waiting for Christmas!" he tells Seacrest.

Lopez -- who won't find out the baby's sex beforehand -- says his family has been impatient for him to become a father.

"This is really late for me. In Mexican years I should have three to four kids right now!" he jokes. "My family was like 'About time!' when I told them!"

Lopez -- who rose to fame playing A.C. Slater on sitcom Saved by the Bell and competed on Dancing With the Stars -- announced the pregnancy on March 10.
