It's a girl for DWTS champ J.R. Martinez!
Martinez, 28, and girlfriend Diana Gonzalez-Jones welcomed their very first child together, a daughter named Lauryn Anabelle Martinez on Wednesday evening, May 2 in Los Angeles.
"She's already got a nickname — Belle," Martinez reveals to People of his bundle of joy who weighed in at 7 lbs., 13 oz. "She has a couple of cute little freckles on her cheeks, a full head of hair and the cutest little lips… It's just amazing to see her, finally. She's beautiful."
The two officially became a pair last year after knowing each other since 2008. At the time they first met, Diana worked as an assistant to an executive producer for All My Children while J.R. was starring in the ABC soap as Brot Monroe.
"2011 has been full of a lot of surprises and opportunities and ultimately, a lot of blessings," said the Iraq war vet in an interview with People last year. "Diana and I were just asking ourselves, 'How is 2012 going to top 2011?' Well, we have our answer!"
