He and Lopez already share a four-year-old daughter, whose name has not been publicly revealed.

Slater welcomed his first two children Eliana, 22, and Jaden, 25, during his marriage to journalist Ryan Haddon.

Back in 2019, after the birth of his youngest, Slater told People he was enjoying watching her newborn 'really acknowledge' and smile at him.

'Before, it would just be this involuntary thing,' he raved. 'Now, she sees and smiles, and that's a beautiful milestone.'

At the time, he also joked about how 'complicated' parenting has become since the Nineties.

'I thought your kid could get a couple of germs and be fine, build up the immune system. But now you have to wash everything,' he mused on The Late Late Show with James Corden.

He continued: 'The bottles, they break down into eight different pieces, and it's a puzzle you have to put together.'

The performer admitted that the newborn stage was just 'a constant job' of constantly cleaning and 'late nights.'

'It kind of already feels like we did the wedding,' he said at the time.

Despite the private affair for the official wedding, Christian and Brittany planned a familial event for their wedding later that year.

'It will be good, intimate and small and family members. It will be nice,' he told People, at the time. 'Honestly, you gotta get a planner and do all that, but we will get it organized.

'We had a big engagement party on the 31st of December and it was nice, it was like a New Year's and we had all the family come... so we are just going to do a nice backyard situation,' he said.
