When it comes to welcoming his first child this fall, Mario Lopez is all about the element of surprise — much to the dismay of his friends and family.
“I think that is one of life’s great surprises. I want to be, ‘Oh, it’s a girl’ and ‘Oh, it’s a boy.'”
And despite warnings that he and girlfriend Courtney Mazza won’t be prepared for baby’s arrival without knowing whether they’ll be buying pink or blue, Lopez insists stocking up on presents is the last thing on his mind.
“I’ll be all right with gifts and maybe a coat of paint on the wall,” he admits.
“Real excited” about fatherhood, Lopez, 36, is still brainstorming when it comes to a name.
“I don’t have names picked out. Maybe you can help me,” he prompted DeGeneres.
