Mario Lopez Plans to Wed Woman Carrying His Baby
Mario Lopez plans to wed his pregnant girlfriend Courtney Mazza.
"That's on the way," the Extra host, 36, told UsMagazine.com at the Juno Baby Launch party at The Four Seasons in Beverly Hills Sunday.
"We have a big year this year because she moved out here," continued Lopez, who met Mazza while co-starring on Broadway's Chorus Line in New York City in 2008. (They now live together in L.A.) "We got a new house, a new dog, new baby... so it's on the way. There is no rush. It's exciting."
“I'm at a great place and I am blessed to have Courtney in my life and I'm blessed with everything that is going on and I'm really happy," added Lopez.

Mazza, 28, who is due at the end of September, and Lopez, are waiting to find out the sex of their first child together, but she thinks "a boy!" Lopez, however, thinks "it's a girl."
In the meantime, Lopez is doting on his girlfriend. "I take care of her and treat her like a princess and get her anything she wants. I try to feed her all the time because I want a real healthy fat baby."
The tot will have a traditional name -- but it won't be Mario Jr. "I'm not into the crazy Hollywood baby names at all!" he told Us. "I'm definitely not going to do a Jr. I don't like that either. which is weird because in my culture, they do it a lot. We are going to try and keep names within our culture and go a little bit classic, but not anything crazy."

Mazza says she's had "such an easy pregnancy."
She plans to stay in shape: "I have a trainer and I work out with her and I walk my dog a lot. I watch what I eat but I don't deprive myself. The hardest thing to stay away from is bread and carbs.”
"She looks great! I want to keep her pregnant all the time!" joked Lopez, who hasn't packed on any sympathy pounds, either.

"I've actually lost weight just because I have been running around and working harder and stressing harder," he admitted.
