Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – “Extra” host Mario Lopez and his wife Courtney have welcomed their first child together, a son named Dominic, on Monday.
The new dad announced the news via Twitter saying, “It’s a boy!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Please welcome Dominic Lopez to the world! Couldn’t be happier… @CourtneyMLopez & baby are doing just fine… :)”
Shortly after, Lopez tweeted, “I am in heaven right now…. And in a bar.” Before the birth, the hunky host expressed his excitement over Dominic’s coming, saying the anticipation is “killing” him.
Meanwhile, the new mom told US Weekly earlier this year that she felt prepared for their second baby. She said, “Although I’m hoping it’s like riding a bike and that I’ll just remember what I did with Gia, because now all the newborn stuff she obviously doesn’t need anymore.”
The couple, who tied the knot in December 2012, have an older child together, daughter Gia Francesca, 2. They announced they were expecting a second child last February.
