Mario Lopez was ready to put a ring on it over the New Year's holiday, and is now engaged to girlfriend Courtney Mazza.
The 38-year-old "Extra" host popped the question while in Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo, Mexico, on New Year's Day, his rep tells CNN.
Lopez explained on "Extra," I've come to the realization that I'm never going to meet another woman as special and amazing as the one I have, and I think she's finally succumbed to my pressure and will take me," he laughed.
With his friend manning the home video camera and the (rumored to be $80,000) engagement ring in hand, Lopez took Mazza, with whom he has a one-year-old daughter, for a stroll on the beach.
"I don't have anything necessarily prepared, I'm just going to speak from the heart," Lopez said. "The sun's almost setting, the family's there, so we're good to go."
Although his actual proposal was kept off camera, Lopez and Mazza did emerge beaming, with Mazza showing off her engagement ring.
"She said yes, however it took her a minute," Lopez joked. (Mazza explained that she was just in shock: "We were hugging and then the next thing I know, you're on your knee!")
According to Us Weekly, the two plan to marry in Mexico sometime this year.
Lopez was previously married to Ali Landry, but the 2004 nuptials were annulled after two weeks.
Tight with his money. That's all he spent on her ring. At Bob, I'll kick your butt for you if you like f@ggot.
I hope he comes out of the closet soon my butt misses him
Yes, so they have a child together. It happens. Maybe they both wanted to take their time before taking a big step as marriage. Who won't want to take things slow. People seem to get stupid once they get marry and start putting the ball and chain on.
@Mike P you are on the mark! What is the problem with being married first and having a stable home to bring a child into?
I give this relationship no more than a year. He'll cheat again. Better get that pre-nup Mario.
Wait a minute...did I read that right? He proposed because he figures this is the best he can do?
I would be a heck of a lot more impressed with these celebrities if they exercised some self-control and got married BEFORE they had children. Not a role model for kids in sight these days.
Funny how it doesn't mention that his previous marriage was annulled after 2 weeks because he cheated on her while on their honeymoon. He's a jerk.
OK Mario, don't mess it up this time @ the bachelor party like you did with Ali Landry....
And Mr. Belding
I totally banged all the chicas from Saved By The Bell... And Zack. And Screach
Naaaaah. His eyes probably look funny like that because he has been snacking on dooodie.
Mario is so cute and he has the dreamy est eyes ever. Lucky girl !
I think it is written by and for 6 year old girls.
Has anyone seen that comedy show called THE MIDDLE? That is the worst tv show I have ever seen.
