Mario Lopez dimple flexes and head pats like such a champ on The X Factor, it’s hard to see past his “sweetheart” callin’ and arm squeezing enough to not fall all Jessie Spano for him. But before we start getting “so excited” about Slater himself, let’s put the acid washed denim wear down and talk about his relationship status.

First of all, Mario is not engaged to Elizabeth Berkley, so please stop shipping that one (you both know who you are). Second, he is engaged, and this girl is HOTT. Her name is Courtney Mazza, she’s 29 years old, and Mario proposed to her on New Year’s Eve last year in Ixtapa, Mexico with an $80,000 ring.

You’ll get to see plenty of the petite brunette when the 39-year-old X Factor host makes an honest woman of her on their two hour December 8 TLC wedding special (which begins at 8PM ET/PT). Although you can possibly still crash the wedding, which is rumored to take place this weekend in Punta Mita, Mexico, the flower girl job is already taken.

The couple, who have been dating since 2008, have a 2-year-old daughter named Gia. This will be Mario’s second wedding (he was previously married to Ali Landry. Spoiler alert: It didn’t go well.)

Are you surprised the pro host is going to get even more screentime? Will you be watching?
