Mario Lopez engaged to girlfriend Courtney Mazza

Mario Lopez is officially taking himself, and his girlfriend, off of the market.

Lopez, host of "Extra" and "America's Best Dance Crew," proposed to his girlfriend of three years, Courtney Mazza, over New Year's weekend in Ixtapa, Mexico, according to Us Weekly.

"We took a walk alone as the sun was setting," Lopez told the magazine. "I told Courtney that I wanted the mother of my children to have their last name. She was silent at first from shock, then she leaped for joy and did a little jete!"

The pair are set to wed in Mexico later this year, and share 2-year-old daughter, Gia Lopez. (Pictured above: Mario Lopez and Courtney Mazza appear in a photo from Mazza's official Twitter page.)

"Besides our daughter's birth, this was the best moment of my life!" Mazza, 28, told Us.

Lopez, 38, told People in March 2011 that he was in no rush to get married.

"Everything is great right now," Lopez told the magazine, adding that he and Mazza were "looking forward" to marriage "later on."

The pair met in 2008 while starring in the musical "A Chorus Line" on Broadway.

"Everything has changed," Lopez said. "The way you look at life, the way you look at relationships, the way you approach everything."

Lopez was first married to former Miss USA Ali Landry in April 2004, after dating for six years. Landry had the marriage annulled only two weeks later after finding out that Lopez had cheated on her during their engagement.
