Former Saved By The Bell star Mario Lopez is engaged to his girlfriend of four years, Courtney Mazza.
The couple, which already has one child, Gia, jetted to Ixtapa, Mexico for a romantic New Year’s vacation and the TV personality even asked Mazza’s parents to come along for the surprise.

The two took an evening stroll along the beach and Lopez then popped the question with a five-carat ring.

He tells Us Weekly, “We took a walk alone as the sun was setting. 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.”

The blushing bride-to-be gushed, “Besides our daughter’s birth, this was the best moment of my life.”

The pair will wed in Mexico later this year.
