Mario Lopez is back to being saved by the bell.

The second he finished his hosting duties on The X Factor on Monday, the new dad — who also helped launch Extra‘s 20th season at Universal Studios Hollywood and did his radio show, On with Mario, earlier in the day — was ushered out the door to head to the hospital.

Lopez, 39, had received the call: although wife Courtney‘s c-section was scheduled for next week, she had gone into labor and was ready to deliver the couple’s second child.

Twenty minutes after he arrived, Lopez — who greeted the mom-to-be with a kiss before posing for one last quick picture — suited up and was in the operating room anticipating the big announcement.

Courtney Lopez makes pregnancy look like a walk in the park.

Two-year-old Gia Francesca‘s mommy — who announced in February that she’s having another baby — says that aside from exhaustion, things are easy breezy.

“I feel great,” Mario Lopez‘s sexy wife recently told PEOPLE in between an appearance at New Jersey’s NessaLee Baby boutique. “I had a really easy pregnancy with Gia, so fortunately I’m having the same kind of pregnancy. A lot of things could go wrong, so I’m really, really lucky.”

The ease of the pregnancy isn’t the only thing that reminds Courtney of when she was carrying Gia.

“[All of my cravings are] exactly the same,” she says. “I have a sweet tooth anyway, so my sweet tooth is kind of magnified by a million. I like the slushies, the chocolates, the sweets. I don’t deprive myself, but I have to do everything in moderation.”
