‘It’s a BOY!!!! Healthy, beautiful baby boy… Santino Rafael Lopez! Baby & Mom are doing great. Mrs. Lopez came through like a Champ!’ he wrote by the photo.

The little brother will be welcomed into the family by big sister Gia, aged eight, and brother Dominic, aged five.

The happy couple met back in 2008 while working together on A Chorus Line on Broadway. They got married in Punta Mita, Mexico in December 2012 and their daughter Gia served as their flower girl.

‘Oh BABY!! Here we go again… #LopezPartyOfFive #DebutingInJuly,’ Courtney wrote on Instagram.

‘We are adding to the team. We’re going to be a party of five,’ the Saved By the Bell star wrote. He also noted that they didn’t know the sex of the baby.

Later in the day, Mario shared a sweet video and photos of the moment he told his elder children whether they would be having a brother or sister. 

The adorable clip saw Gia and Dominic sitting on the couch giving a few guesses as to what the little bundle of joy was.

Little Dominic was torn – wanting a sister to be the ‘king’ and protect his ‘queens’ or having two ‘kings’ to protect their elder sister. 

The five-year-old was besotted when he found out he would be an older brother to little Sonny.  

Mario also shared touching photos of the kids cradling their brother while visiting mom at the hospital.

The Extra host captioned the images: ‘Kids excited to finally find out what their sibling is…’  

In an interview with PEOPLE, Lopez explained that he didn’t want to know the sex of the baby — a tradition they have had with all of their kids.

 ‘We’re pretty old school, you know, it being the tie-breaker,’ he told the magazine. ‘It doesn’t matter, to be honest, as long as it’s healthy. We’re just very excited. The gender reveal will be when it’s born!’

The happy father also went on to call his third child a ‘Christmas miracle’ for his family.
