“She’s constantly changing,” new dad Mario Lopez tells OK! of his infant daughter, Gia. “But she’s got these slight dimples.” Mario opens up about becoming a dad for the first time in the new issue of OK! — on sale everywhere now! — and shares pictures of his new little girl, along with his girlfriend, Courtney Mazza.
“I’m still in that shocked, euphoric stage,” Mario explains to OK! of being a father. “Finding out the sex of the baby was the best surprise. I did a big betting pool and everyone was excited. I thought we were having a girl, and Courtney thought it was a boy.”
So does he have worries about being a first-time dad to Gia, born on Sept. 11? Not really!
“I come from a big, loud Mexican Catholic family,” Mario tells OK!. “My sister also has three kids, so I’m used to a bunch of babies [being] around.”
