Mario Lopez on His Daughter Getting a Phone for Christmas: I Didn’t Have One Until My ‘Late 20s’

01/26/2016 at 03:00 PM ET

The holidays may have come and gone, but Ellen DeGeneres is still all about giving her audience the gift of a good view.

On Tuesday’s epside of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, DeGeneres shared a snapshot of guest Mario Lopez on Christmas Eve — wearing nothing but underwear.

“My wife is so shady — I was putting presents out before Santa came the next day and she took a picture. I kick it in my underwear!” Lopez, 42, explains.

Although the dad of two can be seen holding a large wrapped box — a building set for his son — the Extra host admits at the top of 2-year-old Nico‘s wish list was a light saber.

“He was all fired up about getting a light saber. That was his big deal,” says Lopez. “We had light saber fights … I love getting to be a kid again and having this whole Star Wars experience again.”

Inside Mario Lopez’s Sweet Carnival-Themed Birthday Party for His Kids

Mario Lopez doubled the birthday celebrations with a joint carnival-themed party for his kids — daughter Gia Francesca, who turned 5 on Friday, and son Dominic Luciano, who turned 2 on Sept. 9.

“I loved the carnival theme, and I love that the kids are born two days apart so I can do the combo birthday party,” the Extra host, 41, tells PEOPLE. “I’m going to try to get away with that as long as I can!”

Lopez and his wife Courtney, 33, invited 80 guests to their Los Angeles-area home on Saturday to celebrate their kids’ milestones with plenty of carnival fun, including a magician, a face painter, a balloon artist, a bouncy house, and what the host describes as “the biggest piñata that you’ve ever seen.”

Mario Lopez is learning that there’s no such thing as a weekend when you’re a parent.

In the June issue of Parents Latina magazine, Lopez offers a peek inside the “chaos” of raising daughter Gia Francesca, 4½, and son Dominic, 21 months, with wife Courtney.

“There are no time-outs, really. Weekends, you think you can catch up on rest, and it’s the opposite. It gets even busier. It’s a different kind of busy!” he says.

“My wife and I call our son Wreck-It Ralph because he destroys everything. He’s got a lot of fire in him,” the Extra host continues. “My daughter is very dramatic. She’s been sick recently, and this morning she said, ‘Oh my god, I’m not going to feel better. My cough is never going to go away!’ I told her, ‘Don’t worry, you’ll be okay.’ ”

There’s nothing better than going home after a long day’s work and hearing the word “Daddy!”

Well, at least according to Mario Lopez.

In a recent interview with Mini Magazine, the Extra host could not help but dish about his life at home.

“If it’s a horrible day — tough or long — I come home, go to the door and little kids yell, ‘Daddy!’ it makes it all better,” Lopez says. “It’s only complemented my life.”
