Over the summer, Lopez, told PEOPLE he was doting on Mazza, 28. “I’m constantly trying to feed her because I want to have a really healthy, chubby baby,” he said at the time.

The Extra host also said he planned to write a book and create a reality show about first-time fatherhood. “There’s so much out there for women but not so much for men, and I want to be a very hands-on dad,” he said.

“I think having a humorous but informative way to tell that story would be great for a show.”
