Mario Lopez And Courtney Mazza Welcome A Baby Boy Named Dominic

THE X FACTOR Season Three Premiere Party

It's a boy!  Mario Lopez and his wife Courtney have welcomed their second child together, a son named Dominic. 

Courtney gave birth on Monday night, with Mario skating in just in time for the delivery.  He Tweeted to his fans, "Whoa.. Cutting it close. Just wrapped @TheXFactorUSA & I'm rushing to the hospital. Baby Lopez #2 is coming tonight! Baby better wait for me!"  He then shared the moment of arrival (which has been documented for an upcoming show), "It's a boy!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Please welcome Dominic Lopez to the world! Couldn't be happier… @CourtneyMLopez & baby are doing just fine."

After "Nico" arrived and rested with mum, Mario headed off to celebrate.  He shared, "I am in heaven right now…. And in a bar. " 

The couple anticipated that their baby might arrive early, so they celebrated daughter Gia's third birthday last week, just in case!  Gia's little brother was born two days before her birthday, which is today!  September is going to be a busy birthday month for the Lopez family, but I'm sure they don't mind a bit! 

Congrats to the expanding family!
