U.S. TV star Mario Lopez has proposed to his girlfriend Courtney Mazza just hours after she gave birth to their first child, according to new tabloid reports. The actors, who met while starring together on Broadway in 2008, welcomed daughter Gia Francesca into the world on September 11.
And former "Saved by the Bell" star Lopez, who almost missed the birth after dashing back to Los Angeles from Las Vegas, was so thrilled to be a first time dad he proposed to 28-year-old Mazza while she was still in her hospital bed, reports the National Enquirer.
A source tells the publication, "Mario said the delivery was the most astounding moment of his life. He was so happy that just a few hours after Gia's birth he proposed to Courtney and she accepted. Mario is completely in love, and said he wants to get married early next year."
A representative for Lopez had not commented on the report as WENN went to press. If true, it won't be the 36 year old's first trip down the aisle - his marriage to actress Ali Landry in 2004 lasted just two weeks.
