Mario Lopez and his girlfriend Courtney Mazza will get married on TV, just like Prince William and Kate Middleton and Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo. TLC just announced that the wedding special will air as a two-hour event on the TLC channel on December 8h.
Lopez, who has just been announced as one of the new judges on X-Factor along with friend Khloe Kardashian, has reportedly been very excited for the nuptials to arrive. As part of the USA Today announcement, he says, “Courtney and I already feel incredibly blessed to have found each other, and thank God for our beautiful daughter Gia. Our family is looking forward to celebrating our wedding later this year, and know that TLC is the perfect partner to help us share our love and our special day with the rest of the world.”
Lopez has been in a relationship with Courtney Mazza, a Broadway dancer, since the fall of 2008. In March of 2010, an announcement was released saying that Mazza was pregnant and that she and Lopez were expecting a child. Their daughter was born in September of 2011, and now they will be married after getting engaged over the 2011-2012 New Year weekend.
