The former Saved by the Bell actor Mario Lopez has proposed to his girlfriend Courtney Mazza. Lopez told US Weekly that he popped the question to Broadway dancer Courtney - who he has been dating since 2008 - whilst the couple were in Ixtapa, Mexico, over the New Year's weekend.
The couple already have a daughter together, two year old Gia and Lopez said, "We took a walk alone as the sun was setting," says Lopez. "I told Courtney that I wanted the mother of my children to have their last name. She was silent at first from shock, then she leaped for joy and did a little jete!" His fiancee went on to add "Besides our daughter's birth, this was the best moment of my life!" The couple met whilst they were both starring in A Chorus Line on Broadway. They plan to marry in Mexico some time in 2012.
Mario Lopez recently hosted the now-cancelled show H8r which featured celebrities confronting someone who had been critical of their career. The show was cancelled after one series, due to poor ratings. Lopez was married, once before, to Ali Landry but the marriage was annulled just two weeks later, apparently due to Lopez's infidelity.
