“The X factor” judge Mario Lopez is the proud father of a baby boy. Mario’s wife Courtney Mazza gave birth to the tyke late Monday night. The couple named their son Dominic. They also have a daughter, Gia, who turns 3 on Sept. 11.
Mario, 39, tweeted the baby’s arrival on his official Twitter page. “Whoa.. cutting it close,” the “Extra” host wrote. “Just wrapped @TheXFactorUSA & I’m rushing to the hospital. Baby Lopez #@ is coming tonight! Baby better wait for me.”
Courtney is Lopez’s second wife. His first wife is actress Ali Landry. The hunky actor also dated socialite Eva Longoria for a few months.
For years there were rumors that the former “Saved by the Bell” teen star was gay. But his faithful gay flock turned their backs on him (no pun intended) when he tweeted his love for Chick-Fil-A on Oct. 7, 2012. The chicken franchise is accused of being against gay marriage.
In response to Mario’s tweet, Dan Savage, a gay activist who practices the same intolerance that he despises, tweeted, “Because you’re a thoughtless jerk who just alienated the gay men you expected to buy your new line of crappy manpanties?” And interfaith minister Reverend Sue Clark replied, “Seriously? Please curb your cravings 4 bigotry.”
