The best part? The 44-year-old looks exactly like his little boy, Dominic, who is three years old, in the snapshot. Watch the video below to see the adorable flashback pic of Mario!
Mario is famous for sharing cute photos of his kids on social media. The Extra host and his wife, Courtney Laine Mazza — the two married in 2012 — are also parents to a daughter Gia, 7. In a previous interview, Mario gushed that the pair is “on board” for baby No. 3! “We’re going for number three, hopefully, we’ll get blessed,” he said last year. “We gotta have a tiebreaker — girl or boy.”
Over the summer, Mario gushed about life as a dad-of-two. “My wife, my kids, my dogs, they just complement everything in my life,” he told Today. “It’s like a team effort now. This is honestly the happiest I’ve ever been. I feel very blessed with everything that’s going on both professionally and personally.”
Mario and Courtney live by the team effort motto when raising their kids, too. “[Gia] goes to Catholic school, so she’s got a nice faith-based education and (Courtney and I) are trying to do our best to raise them right,” he said. “When you’re united as parents and have constant communication, that goes a long way. My parents did that to me and I do that with my daughter as well.”
And even though Mario has a super busy work schedule, he always puts being a dad first! “I’m always there for breakfast and pretty much always get home for dinner, but it’s just action-packed in between,” he added. “Sometimes I have to travel, but if I’m gone longer than a week, my family will come with me.” What a perfect family!
