That’s on the way,” the Extra host, 36, said. “We have a big year this year because she moved out here,” continued Lopez, who met Courtney while co-starring on Broadway’s Chorus Line in New York City in 2008. “We got a new house, [in Los Angeles] a new dog, new baby… so it’s on the way. There is no rush. It’s exciting.”
“I’m at a great place and I am blessed to have Courtney in my life and I’m blessed with everything that is going on and I’m really happy,” added the dad-to-be.
Courtney is due with the couple’s first child at the end of September. In the meantime, Mario is doting on his girlfriend. “I take care of her and treat her like a princess and get her anything she wants. I try to feed her all the time because I want a real healthy fat baby.”
The couple aren’t going ‘Hollywood’ or too traditional with baby names. “I’m not into the crazy Hollywood baby names at all!” Mario said. “I’m definitely not going to do a Jr. I don’t like that either. which is weird because in my culture, they do it a lot. We are going to try and keep names within our culture and go a little bit classic, but not anything crazy.”
Courtney said she’s had “such an easy pregnancy.” The mom-to-be plans to stay in shape: “I have a trainer and I work out with her and I walk my dog a lot. I watch what I eat but I don’t deprive myself. The hardest thing to stay away from is bread and carbs.”
“She looks great! I want to keep her pregnant all the time!” Mario joked, who hasn’t packed on any sympathy pounds, either. “I’ve actually lost weight just because I have been running around and working harder and stressing harder,” he admitted.
