Mario Lopez is a first-time dad!

The Extra host, 36, and his girlfriend, Courtney Mazza, welcomed a baby girl, Gia Francesca Lopez, Saturday in Burbank, Calif. Gia weighed in at 6 lbs, 4 oz.

Lopez and Mazza, 28, who met while costarring in Broadway's A Chorus Line, waited until delivery day to learn their baby's sex.

"Where else in life do you get such special surprises?" Lopez, who penned a book for first-time dads due out next year, asks. "I hope with all our kids it will be a surprise."
