Mario Lopez Girlfriend – Mario Lopez proposed to his longtime girlfriend Courtney Mazza over New Year’s Eve weekend in Ixtapa, Mexico. The former “Saved by the Bell” star has been dating Mazza, a 28-year-old stage actress, since 2008. The couple, who publicly opened their homes to audiences with their VH1 reality show, Saved By the Baby, are the proud parents of 2 year-old Gia.
“We took a walk alone as the sun was setting,” Lopez, 38, told Us Weekly. “I told Courtney that I wanted the mother of my children to have their last name. She was silent at first from shock, then she leaped for joy and did a little jete!”
Their next adventure as a couple will take place next year when they plan to wed in Mexico.
Mazza, who’s usually the silent half of the couple said, “Besides our daughter’s birth, this was the best moment of my life!”
For those who are worried that this commitment will take a hit to Lopez’s career, fear not. In the last few years he has appeared on Broadway in A Chorus Line and has hosted numerous shows including, America’s Next Dance Crew, Miss Teen USA, Miss America, and in 2006 even danced his way to the top on Dancing With The Stars, where he met and dated his dance partner, Karina Smirnoff.
This isn’t the first time Mario Lopez has made it down the aisle. In 2004 he made headlines when he married Doritos girl, Ali Landry, also in Mexico. Two weeks later the couple annulled the marriage due to infidelities on Lopez’s part.
Lopez and Mazza plan to exchange vows later this year in Mexico.
