The previously reported Mario Lopez docu-series now has a name and a premiere date: Mario Lopez: Saved by the Baby will premiere Monday, November 1 at 10:30/9:30c on VH1. Details in the press release below…
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 former sexiest bachelor’s as he makes the transition to super dad. Mario Lopez: Saved by the Baby premieres on VH1 November 1 at 10:30PM ET/PT.
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 VH1’s new series Mario and girlfriend Courtney will let cameras follow as they transition from dating to co-parenting. 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.
Thrilled about their new role as parents, Mario and Courtney will have to learn how to balance their new life with their busy careers and hectic schedules. With Courtney being a performer and Mario being the host of EXTRA and America’s Best Dance Crew and author of 3 books including a New York Times bestseller Extra Lean, they will definitely have their hands full. Whether it’s waking up at 3 am or changing diapers between takes on set…for Mario it’s an all-out, no-holds-barred crash course in fatherhood! With Courtney by his side and VH1 cameras rolling, the new parents are eager to find balance to their new lives while still enjoying their relationship and new addition to their family.
