Mario Lopez and Courtney Mazza are set to wed on Saturday Dec. 1 on a beach in Mexico -- and the X Factor cohost, 39, recently told Us that his bride-to-be is calling all the plays when it comes to planning the big bash.
"She's the quarterback of the team," Lopez, 39, said. "It's her day, so I'm cool with what she wants."
One exception? "I'm involved with the wedding planning, because i want it to be a big party!"
"We took a walk alone as the sun was setting," Lopez told Us. "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 and did a little jete!"
