Talk about pressure!
It’s a feat former teen heartthrob Mario Lopez will tackle on the new VH1 reality show — Mario Lopez: Saved By The Baby. From the hottest parties to the dirtiest diapers, VH1 is giving viewers a fly-on-wall look into the life of one of Hollywood’s most notorius Ladies Men makes the transition to Family Man. Mario’s bachelor days came to an end two years ago while performing in a Chorus Line on Broadway where he met and fell in love with dancer Courtney Mazza. In their first reality show, the Extra host and companion Courtney will let cameras follow as they transition from dating to co-parenting daughter Gia. Gia was actually born last month, but filming on the show started well before that.
“From sonograms and baby proofing to vacations with the in-laws, Mario and Courtney will begin this exciting and sometimes overwhelming new chapter in their lives with America watching,” the network said in a press release issued last week.
Mario Lopez: Saved By The Baby premieres on VH1 Nov. 1 @ 10:30PM ET/PT.
