Wedding bells are set to ring for “Extra” host Mario Lopez. Over the New Year’s weekend while vacationing in Mexico, Lopez popped the question to girlfriend Courtney Mazza and, he tells Us Weekly, she accepted.
“We took a walk alone as the sun was setting,” says Lopez. “I told Courtney that I wanted the mother of my children to have their last name. She was silent at first from shock, then she leaped for joy and did a little jete!”
The couple, who have been together since 2008, are already parents to two-year-old daughter Gia. Mazza is a dancer, hence the “jete.”
They plan to wed in Mexico later this year.
Lopez was married to former Miss USA Ali Landry in 2004, but the marriage was annulled two weeks later. He also romanced his “Dancing with the Stars” partner Karina Smirnoff from 2006 – 2008.
