It’s a girl for DWTS alum Mario Lopez

It’s a girl for “Extra” and MTV’s “America’s Best Dance Crew” host and “Dancing with the Stars” alum Mario Lopez, 36, and his girlfriend Courtney Mazza. The baby, Gia Francesca Lopez was born in Burbank on Saturday.

Who else would Lopez give the first quotes to? “Extra” of course. He told “Extra,” “We are so overjoyed. What an amazing, wonderful and overwhelming experience to welcome our daughter into the world.”

Lopez starred as A.C. Slater in “Saved by the Bell” from 1989-1996 and was in the spin-off “Saved by the Bell: The College Years.” He was briefly on the soap opera “The Bold and the Beautiful” in 2006. In the fall of that year, Lopez was partnered with Karina Smirnoff in the third season of “Dancing with the Stars.” Lopez and Smirnoff finished second to former football player Emmitt Smith and his partner Cheryl Burke.

Lopez went from “Dancing with the Stars” to Broadway, starring in “A Chorus Line” as Zach in 2008 where he met Mazza, 28. Gia weighed 6 lbs. 4 oz.
