Twenty years after graduating from Bayside High, Lopez reunites with the cast of Saved by the Bell on the cover of PEOPLE. "I didn't even know I had a mullet!" Lopez jokes of the flowing curls he sported on the show. "Looking back, I guess it does qualify."
It's a Girl!
Lopez becomes a dad to daughter Gia Francesca. "We are so overjoyed," he tells Extra of his new addition with girlfriend Courtney Mazza. "What an amazing, wonderful and overwhelming experience to welcome our daughter into the world."

Lopez proposes to Mazza during a Christmas holiday in Mexico. "I've come to the realization that I'm never going to meet another woman as special and amazing as the one I have, and I think she's finally succumb to my pressure and will take me," Lopez gushes on Extra of his engagement.
A year after getting engaged, Lopez and Mazza tie the knot in an outdoor ceremony in Punta Mita, Mexico, that features a mariachi band and a winter-wonderland-meets-beach theme wedding cake designed by Cake Boss's Buddy Valastro. The couple's 2-year-old daughter, Gia, serves as a flower girl and Mazza dons Ines Di Santo dresses for the event, which will be televised on TLC as part of a two-hour special.
Two months after getting married, Lopez reveals he and wife Courtney will welcome their second child over the summer. "I am the happiest father in the world," he says on Extra. "We cannot wait to welcome baby Lopez number two into our lives."
The Extra anchor takes to Twitter to announce the birth of his son. "Please welcome Dominic Lopez to the world," he writes. "Couldn't be happier... Courtney and baby are doing just fine."
