Mario Lopez's wife Courtney Mazza Lopez is currently pregnant with her second child — and the X Factor and Extra cohost already has his long-term family planning well thought out. "Mario is trying to convince me to have four kids," Lopez — who tied the knot with the TV personality on Dec. 1, 2012 in Mexico — tells Us Weekly. "I said I would have three — that was pushing it."
While it remains to be seen who will win the couple's household battle, one thing is for certain: Mario and Coutney can't wait to give daughter Gia, 2, a sibling. "We're excited because we see Gia growing into this little adult — her personality is so vivacious and exuberant — and it's really cool," enthuses Courtney, who has decided, like she did with her first pregnancy, to keep her unborn baby's gender a surprise. "It'll just be fun to see the next child that we made, and the next child after that . . . but that's it: Three," she jokes to Us.
As she preps for baby No. 2, Courtney tells Us she's taking special care to cater to soon-to-be big sister Gia. Recently, the Los Angeles-based Lopez family surprised her with a trip to Disney World. And as any little girl obsessed with princesses would be, Gia was over-the-moon. Even mom and dad soaked up the Disney magic when the family had a private meet-and-greet with Gia's favorite celebs.
Recalling the special day, Courtney says she was surprised at her daughter's grown-up behavior when meeting Disney's leading ladies. "Mario was holding her and she went in and was just like 'What?! What is going on in here?' It was such a little adult [moment of her], and we just laughed," she remembers, adding that Gia loves to chatter away at home. "The way she says things, growing into a little child — it's just amazing how her mind works and how they learn. She's just a little spitfire!"
