Now Mario Lopez and his wife, Courtney, have a princess and a prince!

The couple welcomed their baby boy yesterday, September 9. Both mom and dad chose not to find out the gender of their baby until his arrival, and the Extra host proudly announced baby’s gender on his Twitter, saying, “It’s a boy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” And now for the big news — his name!

Mario continued his Tweet, saying, “Please welcome Dominic Lopez to the world. Couldn’t be happier… Courtney and baby are doing just fine.” Dominic, huh? We love it. It’s strong, totally tradition and goes together well with big sister, Gia.

The name is derived from the Latin Dominicus (belonging to a lord), which is from dominus (a lord, a master).  We love that baby Dom can go by that nickname or choose to go by Dominic as he gets older. Daddy followed up his earlier tweet saying, “I am in heaven right now….” Aw! Isn’t that sweet? Mario must be over the moon to have one of each right now — a baby boy and a big sister!

No doubt that Gia, who turns 3 on Wednesday, will help get her baby brother acquainted.

Congratulations to the happy couple on their latest arrival!
