Tiffani grew up with Mario on Saved by the Bell — now she wants her little girl, Harper, to grow up with Mario’s daughter, Gia!

Tiffani Thiessen spent four years working side-by-side with Mario Lopez on Saved By the Bell, and the pair developed a friendship that’s still strong — 17 years after their show ended. The new mom to baby girl Harper Renn Smith says she can’t wait to set up playdates with Mario‘s 2-week-old daughter, Gia Francesca Lopez! “I will absolutely [arrange playdates] when they’re a little older,” Tiffani told HollyBaby.com exclusively at the Juno Jr. Launch event at FAO Schwarz in NYC on Sept. 25. “Mario just had her. [And Harper,] she’s three-and-a-half months … so when the baby is a little bit older, of course!”

Right now, both Tiffani and Mario are focused on being first-time parents. “He’s really busy right now,” Tiffani explained. “I’m very busy right now, but we text each other every now and then” to keep in touch.

“It’s a lot,” Tiffani said of her jam-packed mommy schedule. “When you give birth, that second eye [on the back of your head] always happens right there. That’s why I’m kind of looking over there to make sure she’s OK. She’s getting a little fussy,” she added as she looked over at Harper.

And until the craziness calms down, at least Tiffani has her own mom around to help out. “She’s been here for two-and-a-half months helping,” Tiffani said.

But no matter how busy she gets, Tiffani (who told us she wants to have more kids one day) wouldn’t have it any other way. “I didn’t want to have too many expectations,” Tiffani said, “But my biggest thing is that  I actually couldn’t believe that I could fall so much in love with something so little.” Aww!

I admire Tiffani for saying she wants to have more kids one day-not like Mario’s baby mama who stated in her interview at Heidi Klum’s affair that her plans right after having her baby was to get pregnant right away! Hey honey, one thing at a time. Have one baby and enjoy the time with it before you feel the need to get pregnant right away again. Maybe that is so Mario won’t leave.
Tiffani you have so much class. Love ya girl! You should have stayed with Mario instead of his baby mama!
