Mario Lopez: Saved by a Baby Girl?

Julie Ryan Evans

Mario LopezMario Lopez, who I'll only ever be able to think of as A.C. Slater from Saved by the Bell, welcomed a baby girl yesterday.

He and girlfriend Courtney Mazza named their first child Gia Francesca Lopez. She weighed 6 pounds, 4 ounces, and the proud parents couldn't be happier.

"We are so overjoyed. What an amazing, wonderful and overwhelming experience to welcome our daughter into the world," Lopez told Extra.

If Lopez has his way, Gia will have plenty of siblings too.

"As many as she'll give me," he told Us. "At least three!"

The actor is nothing if not tenuous and spread his talents wide from soap opera star on The Bold and The Beautiful to dancing fool on Dancing With the Stars and host with the most on America's Best Dance Crew.

Lopez and his family will also star in their own reality show this Fall on  VH1.

"They want to call the VH1 show 'Mario Lopez: Saved by the Baby'. Makes me laugh when I say it out loud which is good since the show's funny," he tweeted recently.

Sounds good, and like one I'll definitely watch. How could you not be curious about Slater as a dad?

Congratulations to the family!

Will you tune into to Mario Lopez's reality show?
