J.R. Martinez is Going to be a Dad!

What a great year for J.R. Martinez! The war vet not only won the Mirror Ball trophy last month on Dancing with the Stars, but he is expecting his first child with girlfriend, Diana Gonzalez-Jones next spring. 

“We found out just last week it’s a girl and we are over the moon,” Martinez told People Magazine, “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!”

The couple met in 2008 when J.R. landed a role on the soap opera All My Children. They became close friends and took their relationship to the next level just last year. They are now thrilled to be expecting their first daughter together.

Congrats to J.R. and Diana! We’re sure the inspiring hero will be a great dad.
