Mario Lopez welcomes son

Mario and Courtney Lopez

Mario and Courtney Lopez have welcomed a little boy.

The Extra host and his wife already have daughter Gia, three, and now they have added another child to their brood.

Keeping his Twitter followers entertained with a running commentary, Mario finally announced the good news this morning.

“It’s a boy!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Please welcome Dominic Lopez to the world! Couldn’t be happier… @CourtneyMLopez & baby are doing just fine… :) (sic)” he posted.

In February the couple announced the happy news that a second baby was on the way.

Since then they have been waiting anxiously and it seems Mario lost his cool at the last minute.

“Whoa.. Cutting it close. Just wrapped @TheXFactorUSA & I’m rushing to the hospital. Baby Lopez #2 is coming tonight! Baby better wait for me,” he tweeted prior to Dominic’s arrival.

“Waiting for the Dr… @CourtneyMLopez & I are ready to go! Is it a boy or a girl???

“This anticipation is killing me… (sic)”

Mario, 39, and his wife knew from the beginning that they wanted the baby’s sex to remain a surprise.

However, this wasn’t easy for little Gia to understand.

“She’s pointing at the baby and saying, ‘There’s a baby in there,’” Mario previously told People.

“She wants to know if it’s a boy or a girl, but we don’t know because we’re waiting to find out. That’s kind of tough sometimes, we just don’t know!”
