He’s in love! Mario Lopez just recently had his third child, and he of course can’t stop gushing about his baby boy Santino.
“The new baby’s great, fantastic,” the 46-year-old exclusively told Closer Weekly while at Operation Smile Hollywood Fight Night on Wednesday, November 6. “Getting chubby. He’s like 18 pounds and he’s only three months. So super chubby. Real cute. Hardly sleeping but a lot of coffee. Coffee all day!”
This isn’t the first time that The Saved By the Bell alum has revealed his joy for his newborn. “I feel good you know.I like all the chaos,” the TV personality once told Closer of how things are different now that he has another member in his family. Mario also shares two more kids — Gia, 9, and Dominic, 6 — with his wife, Courtney Laine. He revealed that his two eldest children are all about their new baby brother.
“The other kids are obsessed with him and I make sure I do stuff with them as well,” the Extra host revealed at the time. “I took my son to see the [Los Angeles Football Club] soccer game this weekend. I took my daughter to the ‘Dora [and the Lost City of Gold]’ premiere yesterday so you know that’s important.”
“I can’t wait to continue to do stuff with all of them, with the little guy,” Mario continued. “We feel very blessed, and he’s healthy and a beautiful little boy, Santino.”
It is very clear that Mario is all about being a father. He once gushed, “Best role I’ve ever had. I love it. Want to continue to embrace it and all its challenges.” And while he’s a busy guy, the entertainment journalist always makes time for his trio of kids.
“I’m pretty lucky to have breakfast with them every morning, and then I’m home in time for dinner and most of the time, I’m in time for practices,” Mario said. “It’s just crazy with work. They have an understanding of why … and my kids know about my job too and they’re very understanding.”
We’re so happy to hear how great Mario and his family are doing!
