HOW DID COURTNEY LAINE MAZZA AND MARIO LOPEZ MEET?
The two lovebirds met in 2008 while he was doing a six-month run on a Broadway project titled "A Chorus Line." The first time he saw her, she was on stage, so he walked up to her and tried to make small talk before asking her out.
Her response was a no, but it turned out that she had only been playing hard to get. It worked, and when she eventually agreed to a date, the day did not go according to plan.
He had been at a dinner with Kate Couric, who had been in a chatty mood, so he had called Mazza to tell her he would be 20 minutes late, and she blew him off.
Fortunately, they rescheduled and hit things off until he had to return to LA while she stayed in New York working on another Broadway show.
They had to keep the relationship long-distance in the following months, but eventually, she said goodbye to Broadway and moved to LA to be with him.
COURTNEY LAINE MAZZA AND MARIO LOPEZ GOT MARRIED IN MEXICO
Lopez put a ring on Mazza's finger while they were in Mexico for Christmas celebrations in December 2011. He went down on one knee on the beach of Ixtapa Zihuatanejo, surrounded by family, friends, and cameras.
Lopez's Bachelor party was held in Las Vegas, and he was surprised when his bride-to-be gave him a sensual onstage performance with "The Pussycat Dolls," wearing a tight black basque and fishnet stockings.
Their wedding was held in Punta Mita, Mexico, the following year and was attended by friends and family. Their daughter Gia, who had been two years old, was the flower girl.
The wedding cake was a work of art crafted by Buddy Valastro from "Cake Boss," but the inspiration came from Mazza, who handled food and flowers.
Stars like Eva Longoria attended, and there were mariachis because of the importance Lopez places on his heritage. The pair chose not to have a registry, instead opting for donations.
Lopez took care of entertainment and ensured everything was perfect for the event. It was covered by a TLC special titled "Mario & Courtney's Wedding Fiesta."
Speaking about what she likes about her husband, Mazza said his spontaneous and romantic nature. Her husband makes sure to keep the romance alive, even with their kids around, saying:
“Kids and jobs and everything else gets in the way, but you can’t forget about each other.”
He said he manages to keep their marriage spicey by taking even the smallest moments to romance his wife and going on short trips together. Mazza keeps the romance fresh through her cooking, which her husband loves, especially when he comes home to a wholehearted meal.

Mazza and Mario's first child was born on September 11, 2010, two years before their wedding, and she was named Gia. She is the couple's first and only daughter.
Her parents expanded the family again on September 9, 2013, when they welcomed her brother Dominic via C-section, and he has since grown up to become an athletic boy just like his parents. Their third child was named Santino, born on July 8, 2019.
Speaking about his wife during pregnancy, the loving husband expressed gratitude for his wife's good health and positive attitude the whole way through. He stated:
“I always try and make sure she’s happy and comfortable when she’s not pregnant, and even more so now."
More than that, he spoke about how gorgeous he finds Mazza when she is pregnant. He joked that if he could, he would keep her pregnant continuously... minus the babies.

WHO IS COURTNEY MAZZA'S HUSBAND?
Mario Lopez is an actor, producer, and writer, born on October 10, 1973. He is well-known for playing A.C Slater for the late 1980s "Saved by the Bell" and has been nominated for and won numerous awards.
In 2020, he played in the reboot of "Saved by the Bell," but his talents go further than acting; he chose to co-host "Acess Hollywood," starting a radio show with his wife and taking on a lot of cameos.
Lopez is not immune to scandal, allegedly making transphobic comments on "The Candace Owen's Show." He was also accused of sexual assault in the early 1990s and, as mentioned, cheated on his first wife.
BEFORE COURTNEY LAINE MAZZA, MARIO LOPEZ WAS NOT READY TO SETTLE DOWN
Lopez's relationship with his first wife, Ali Landry, was reportedly a mistake that should not have advanced as far as marriage. He stated that even at the time, he felt uncertain about the upcoming wedding. However, Lopez felt everything had been arranged already, and it was too late to look back.
In his memoir, "Just Between Us," he confessed that he was never indeed in love with her while they were together. His relationship with her ended when he was pictured in a compromising position with an unidentified woman, which reportedly happened at his bachelor party.
The picture made its way into the hands of his sister-in-law, and it consequently spelled doom for his relationship with Landry.
The actor now enjoys a fulfilled family life with his three kids, whom he adores, and his wife, who loves him as deeply as he loves her.
