Mario Lopez’s wife Courtney is pregnant!

This will be the second baby for the “Extra” host and his wife, who were married last December in Punta Mita, Mexico.

The baby announcement was made on Lopez’s show, which tapes daily at the Grove in Los Angeles, when his 2-year-old daughter Gia Francesca was seen wearing a T-shirt that said “Big Sister Gia.” A baby shower for the couple followed, according to “Extra.”

“I am the happiest father in the world,” said Lopez, 39. “We cannot wait to welcome baby Lopez number two into our lives.”

The child is due in the summer. The onetime “Saved by the Bell” star also hosts the reality competition series “The X Factor” and syndicated radio show “On With Mario Lopez,” which airs in the evening in Los Angeles on MyFM (104.3-FM).

Lopez was previously married to “Doritos girl” Ali Landry, whom he’d dated for years, but that coupling was annulled after two weeks. Landry reportedly found “really strong evidence” that he’d been unfaithful.

The former A.C. Slater and his wife, then Courtney Mazza, began dating in 2008. They met while performing in Broadway’s “A Chorus Line” in 2006, Extra reported.
