NOT UP TO HIM

Lopez and Mazza, 37, are proud parents of Gia, 10, Dominic, seven, and Santino, a year and a half. The couple wed back in 2012. Before that, Lopez was married to Ali Landry for less than a year. 

The "Saved By the Bell" actor said of the possibility of having another child: "If it was up to me, I'd keep going," before adding, "but I'm not the one having them. So it's my wife's call!"

KIDS UPDATES & DATE NIGHTS

The doting dad then shared an update on little Santino, who is walking now. He further revealed some of his parenting techniques, including telling the older ones to respect others and be polite.

Amid the quarantine, Lopez explained that he and his wife have learned that they have to make definitive plans if they want to have any date nights. The two busy stars schedule a date and time to go out to ensure it happens. 

The pair appear to still be deeply in love from since their initial meeting in 2008. Lopez once revealed that one of his secrets to a successful marriage is to constantly surprise one's wife with gifts or outings. 

Lopez is now  more than content with where he is in life, and young Gia has already begun following in his footsteps with a voice acting role on Disney's "Elena of Avalor."

Today, Lopez is more than content with where he is in life. Young Gia has already begun following in his footsteps with a voice acting role on Disney's "Elena of Avalor," while his younger kids are a source of great joy.

KIDS PLAY THE PIANO

In July, Lopez shared an adorable photo of all three of his kids playing the piano together as their pet dog sat comfortably nearby. Gia and Dominica took charge as baby Santino rested a hand on the edge. 

The cute tot danced away while his older siblings showed off their impressive skills on the large instrument. They have certainly inherited talent genes from their parents.
