Courtney Mazza: Mario Lopez Is “Trying to Convince Me to Have Four Kids”

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.

Courtney Mazza is currently pregnant with her second baby — daughter Gia is 2 — and husband Mario Lopez is already trying to convince her to have four children.

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!”
