Mario Lopez is in awe of the women in his life.
The new dad, who welcomed baby girl Gia Francesca Lopez with his girlfriend Courtney Mazza on Saturday, says he’s overjoyed about the new arrival.
“She’s precious … I just want to go and stare at her,” Lopez, 36, tells Extra of his daughter. And Mazza? She “is a rock star!” he raves. “She was so tough and so strong during the whole thing.”
