“Dancing with the Stars” winner J.R. Martinez is expecting a daughter next spring with girlfriend, Diana Jones.
A veteran of the Iraq War, Martinez sustained severe burns over 40% of his body during his tour in 2003. He is best known for participating in the 13th season of “Dancing with the Stars” just this year and ultimately winning the competition.
The Iraq War veteran is also known for his role on the soap opera “All My Children” where he has played Iraq War veteran Brot Monroe since 2008. It was on the set of the soap where he met Jones who was working as an executive assistant.
News of the couple’s status as expecting parents was released yesterday by People Magazine.
“We found out just last week it’s a girl and we are over the moon,” says Martinez. “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.”
Couldn’t argue with him there.
