J.R. Martinez Is A Dad
Dancing with the Stars champ J.R. Martinez has something new to celebrate today: A baby girl! Read on to find out the beautiful -- and normal! -- name she has.
J.R. Martinez has lots to celebrate today! Since the severely burned Iraq war vet won Dancing with the Stars last November he and girlfriend Diana Gonzalez-Jones have been biding their time eagerly anticipating the birth of their first child -- and now she's here!
Little miss Lauryn Anabelle Martinez was born the evening of May 2 in Los Angeles, the proud papa confirmed to People magazine.
"It's just amazing to see her, finally," Martinez told the mag. "She's beautiful."
Sharing that the tot weighed in at 7 pounds, 13 ounces and measuring 21 inches long, Martinez revealed, "She's already got a nickname: Belle."
"She has a couple of cute little freckles on her cheeks, a full head of hair and the cutest little lips."
The lovely name is a pleasant surprise from the Hollywood couple, but Martinez previously revealed he wouldn't give his kid a weird name like so many in the public eye seem to do.
"We won't name her Apple Cider or Salami," he previously told People. "It won't be our favorite dish or our favorite getaway or favorite car or show. It will be something really close and personal to us that feels like we're giving something to her that is very special."
28-year-old Martinez met Gonzalez-Jones back in 2008 on the set of All My Children.
