On Monday Mario Lopez expressed his joy at becoming a father for the second time. He shared the news on twitter: "It’s a boy!!!!!!!!!! Please welcome Dominic Lopez to the world! Couldn't be happier."
Baby Dominic was delivered in Burbank California, weighing in at 7lbs 2ozs.
Mario was in Downtown Los Angeles shooting The X Factor USA when he heard the news that his wife had gone into labour. Kindly Simon Cowell rushed the show along so that an eager Mario could hurry to be by his wife Courtney's side.
To document the event the 39-year-old broadcaster filmed a 96 second video for his show Extra! detailing the day of his son’s birth. The short film includes a clip of an elated Mario bursting through delivery room doors exclaiming "it’s a boy".
