It has been a big year for J.R. Martinez. First he not only landed a spot of the uber-popular show Dancing with the Stars but the Iraq war vet and actor actually won the mirror ball trophy beating out all the competition.
And now there is even bigger and better news. He and his girlfriend are expecting their first child together. What are they having and who is J.R.’s baby mama?
The happy couple are having a baby girl who will be born in the spring. The mother is Diana Gonzalez-Jones. The two met when J.R. was on All My Children back in 2008. Diana had been an assistant to the soap opera’s executive producer. The two became close pals and then became romantically involved.
What did Martinez have to say about the baby news? “We found out just last week it’s a girl and we are over the moon,” Martinez said to People. “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.”
“2011 has been full of a lot of surprises and opportunities and ultimately, a lot of blessings,” Martinez said. “Diana and I were just asking ourselves, ‘how is 2012 going to top 2011?’ Well, we have our answer!”
Congrats to the happy couple
