Martinez and his girlfriend Diana Gonzalez-Jones are expecting their first child together, due in the spring. He says they already know the sex of their baby and that they are going to have a little girl.
As we all get into the holiday mood, Martinez called news of the pregnancy “the biggest and best gift we could get.” Awww! Just tell me your heart isn’t melting right now. I won’t believe you!
JR’s partner on Dancing With The Stars Karina Smirnoff Tweeted her congratulations to the happy couple. She wrote,
“heard the news @knowjr Congratulations! So happy for u! Can’t wait to meet baby Diana!”
So the pair have obviously continued their friendship after the show. J.R. responded,
“You’ll teach ‘em dancing. lol.”
J.R. is a very proud daddy-to-be, and has been Tweeting constantly since the news broke. He thanked everyone for their good wishes funny comments. He even seemed surprised so many people cared enough about the pregnancy news to send their congratulations.
But is J.R. already feeling the strain of the prospect of having another female in the house?
“First thing that crossed my mind when we found out we were having a girl. All the #emotional feelings, all the #beautyproducts, & the #OMG ‘s,” he Tweeted!
Martinez and Gonzalez-Jones met on the set of All My Children. He was acting on the show and she was working as an assistant to the soap’s executive producer.
Congratulations to J.R. Martinez and Diana Gonzalez-Jones!
