Mario Lopez and fiancée Courtney Mazza will exchange vows in front of their family, friends – and anyone with TLC – as the couple embarks on filming a two-hour wedding special that airs Dec. 8 (8 p.m. ET).
"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," Lopez said in a statement.
Lopez, 39, and Mazza, 31, had a very public engagement when Lopez aired footage of him popping the question on Extra. In September, the America's Best Dance Crew host celebrated his bachelor party in Las Vegas, only to be surprised by Mazza who performed for her husband-to-be with the Pussycat Dolls.
