He followed up with a photo of himself and Mazza in matching hospital gowns, tweeting, "Waiting for the Dr. @CourtneyMLopez & I are ready to go! Is it a boy or a girl??? #BabyLopez."

He has worked as the host of the syndicated entertainment show "Extra" since 2007 and returns as host of FOX's "The X Factor" on Wednesday, Sept. 11, 2013.
