J.R. Martinez, who won us all over on Dancing With The Stars on ABC, has been celebrating his big win since he and partner, Karina Smirnoff took home the mirror ball trophy. Now, J.R. has yet another reason to celebrate – the star revealed that he and his girlfriend are expecting, and they already know the baby’s sex! More after the jump…
Who knew that Dancing With The Stars‘ latest winner was expecting his first child? Apparently, he is! J.R. Martinez recently revealed to People Magazine that he and his, girlfriend Diana Gonzalez-Jones are expecting their first child in the spring. The 28-year-old war veteran and actor told the magazine: “We found out just last week it’s a girl and we are over the moon. Diana has a little baby bump now and it’s the cutest thing ever. With the holidays coming up, this is the biggest and best gift we could get.”
J.R. Martinez met Diana on the set of All My Children back in 2008, and though they were good friends, they took their relationship to the next level just last year. While the news of him being a father is still sinking in, J.R. Martinez feels so blessed with his life right now, and added: “2011 has been full of a lot of surprises and opportunities and ultimately, a lot of blessings. Diana and I were just asking ourselves, ‘How is 2012 going to top 2011?’ Well, we have our answer!”
Congratulations to J.R. Martinez and his girlfriend! We look forward to hearing all the details of his new baby girl in the spring!
