VIDEO: Mario Lopez: My Daughter Is "Dramatic Like Her Mother"

The X Factor host jokes about 2-year-old Gia's personality and explains why he and fiancee Courtney Mazza decided to get married on TV

Take one look at Mario Lopez's 2-year-old daughter Gia, and you can immediately see the resemblance. And while both Lopez and his fiancee, Courtney Mazza, agree that their little girl looks just like her dad, she does have something in common with her mom.

"She's very dramatic like her mother," Lopez jokes to iVillage. "And she's funny like me."

And Mazza agrees: "I can't argue with that!"

When iVillage caught up with the new X Factor cohost and his bride-to-be, they were in New York City promoting the Kiss of the Year contest that they're hosting with Nivea. In addition to gushing about their daughter, the proud parents also dished about their upcoming wedding -- which will air on TLC on Dec. 8.

"We thought it would be fun," says Lopez, 39. "Obviously everyone needs a videographer to document it. And we thought, 'Hey, why not document it with good production value!'"

Watch the videos below to find out why Mario chose New Year's Eve to propose to Courtney and why he's not bothered by the fact that she had a childhood crush on his Saved by the Bell costar.
