Mario Lopez: ‘i Can’t Imagine My Life’ Without Kids

I never knew I had such feelings inside of me, Lopez, 40, told PEOPLE before hosting a fashion show to launch the new Palm Beach Outlets in West Palm Beach, Fla. on Saturday. No matter how rough my day has been, when I get home and hear my children yell, Daddy! I feel so much better. Even though life has changed dramatically for the popular television personality, he and wife Courtney are enjoying every minute spent with their 5-month-old son and daughter Gia Francesca, 3. One of the best times is first thing in the morning when everyone is energetic and ready to roll out a new day. I always have breakfast with the kids, Lopez tells PEOPLE of his daily life in Los Angeles. Courtney usually cooks a breakfast of waffles and oatmeal, and we all seem to be in a good mood. Both of the kids giggle, and its so much fun watching Dominic eat his baby food. He just loves it, and hes getting chubby. At the end of the day, when Lopez returns home from work, he enjoys sitting down to dinner with the family. After catching up on the news, the doting father gives Gia a bath and brushes her teeth. Dominic goes to bed, then Gia and I read or play or do something to wear her out because she has an abundance of energy , Lopez, who bought his daughter flowers and candy for Valentines Day, says. She loves to sing and dance and has become a real night owl! On weekends, Lopez likes to take Courtney and the kids to the park for strolls and out to eat at various restaurants. Gia even gets to see movies and ice shows with her dad. She also enjoys lots of fun family activity in Orlando, the city where Lopez shoots many episodes of Extra, often for more than a week at a time. We really love traveling with the kids, he shares. We take DVD players to keep them occupied. And Gia loves to move around to new places and see different things. Both children have passports already. Lopez is so happy being a father, he is even thinking of expanding his family further. Being with Gia and Dominic gives me the chance to be a kid all over again, he says. All of a sudden I have two amazing playmates. I cant imagine my life without children. Linda Marx

laughter Is Good For The Heart

It has been said that laughter is the best medicine. It is true that, through humor, even the ill can forget their troubles, if only temporarily. Humor has the ability to heal the mind, reduce stress and even ease pain. There are many different benefits to being able to laugh and enjoy life. Love is no joke, however and love will follow those who enjoy laughter. Every person enjoys laughing from time to time, some even enjoy laughing more often than others. The best way to break the ice when meeting a new person, particularly when you feel an attraction to that person, is to make them laugh. Many of the deepest loves have been born from laughter and most have lasted longer than any others.

Knowing what is funny to a person is not always easy. However, it can be interesting to find out what kind of humor a person likes. Telling funny stories about something that happened to you recently can set the stage for finding out what a person finds funny. It is also important to take a bad situation and turn it into a joke. Finding the humor in the difficult things in life can be much more rewarding then letting them break your spirit. From love to health, there are many different ways that jokes and funny stories can enrich your life.

It is very important to have laughter in a relationship. Knowing that you and your partner are enjoying one another's company and having fun in your relationship is easier when there is laughter. Humor in a healthy relationship is one of the many things that are recommended in relationship counseling. Sharing funny stories and humorous jokes ensures that your partner thinks like you and enjoys the same kind of humor that you enjoy. While there are many things in a relationship that should be different and original between a couple, humor is something that most often times should be similar. If you do not enjoy the same kinds of jokes and funny stories, then there may be more conflict in your relationship.

Romance between most couples is something that comes naturally. For others, it is something that has to be worked on. Being able to look beyond all of the hard parts of the relationship and seeing the good things that come out of the bad makes the relationship stronger and the romance will be easier. Finding the humor in the relationship will also help. It will keep the relationship strong for many years and will also help to keep you and your partner physically and mentally healthy for even longer.

Men and women are not much different in what they want from a relationship. Men are looking for someone that will satisfy that inner child and women are looking for a mate that will satisfy their inner desires. Meeting these expectations is as simple as making the person you are with laugh at an inappropriate time.
