Famous American television personality, Mario Lopez took to social media to share a new picture of his newborn son.


Mario Lopez and his wife of six years, Courtney Mazza welcomed their third child, son Santino Rafael a little over a week ago. The famous actor can't, however, seem to stop sharing photos of little Santino.


This particular picture has become an internet favourite because of the striking resemblance between the newborn and his popular father.


The picture has become rather popular because really who doesn't like some cuteness overload like that!? Mario wrote in his caption:

“1 Week Old! You’re on your way mijo… #SantinoRafaelLopez #Sonny #3.”

Being that he is just about a week old, Santino Rafael makes for great eye candy as he was pictured wearing a black jacket that seemed too big for him. Aside from that, his dimpled cheeks, which were made quite visible thanks to his pursed lips, drew attention.


Little Santino might as well be a baby Mario and fans are just loving that! So far, the picture has garnered well over 90,000 likes as well as thousands of comments.


Fans of the famous TV host did nothing to hide their admiration, and the comments section contained compliments of a similar nature.

One avid fan of Mario's, @mightymikequinn said:

“Oh, Man!!! Great looking kido Mario!! Congratulations to you and the family!! The kids and your folks must be thrilled!! What an incredibly beautiful addition to the Lopez Family... just a blessing! Give my love to your wonderful wife!!! So happy for you two!!!”


Another @wee_leperchan said:

“Oh my gosh !! He's so handsome, what a sweetheart. You and your wife are so blessed!”

Even Mario's nursing wife, @courtneym_lopez commented:

“You ARE the father!!!!”


That could not be truer, and the 45-year-old star couldn't be more delighted. To celebrate Santino’s birth, Mario shared a heartwarming collage of photos from the delivery room via Instagram.

Asides Santino, Mario and Courtney, are parents of daughter, Gia Lopez, 8, and son Dominic Lopez, 5. Despite being so young, Gia has already made her mark in the entertainment industry.

She made her debut when she became a part of the voice cast of the Disney Channel show, "Elena of Avalor." She was also the subject of a book Mario released called Mario and Baby Gia ,a year after she was born.

Mario and Courtney do seem to have the perfect celebrity family!
