Mario Lopez has no plans of stopping at three kids with wife Courtney Laine Mazza. However, Lopez said it is all up to his wife whether they will be adding a new member to the family.


Mario Lopez is a busy entertainer who loves being a father — several times over. The 46-year-old and his wife, Courtney Laine Mazza, are parents to three gorgeous kids.

Earlier this week, Closer Weekly asked Lopez if he would want even more children in the future. Lopez was quick to answer but shared a disclaimer as well. His comments are found below.



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!"


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."

Lopez, who has been acting since the age of 10, is quite busy with his hosting gig at "Extra" amidst his acting work. The star has also dabbled in playing the drums, wrestling, and writing in the past.

When Lopez explored his dancing capabilities on "Dancing With the Stars" in 2006, he and his professional partner Karina Smirnoff hit things off. The pair were a thing for two years before their split.


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.


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.
