Army veteran turned actor J.R. Martinez sizzled on Dancing With the Stars from day one showing he can shake it!
“Dancing With the Stars” champ J.R. Martínez can now add the title of father to his long list of achievements.
On Wednesday, Martínez and his girlfriend Diana González-Jones welcomed their first child, a beautiful baby girl named Lauryn Anabelle Martinez.
Martinez told People magazine his daughter weighed in at 7 lbs., 13 oz. and is 21 inches long.
“She’s already got a nickname — Belle,” Martinez, 28, told People.
“She has a couple of cute little freckles on her cheeks, a full head of hair and the cutest little lips.”
Martinez couldn’t help but gush about his daughter, “It’s just amazing to see her, finally. She’s beautiful.”
The 28-year-old Iraq war vet met González-Jones when he was cast for a role in the soap opera "All My Children."
“God has a tremendous sense of humor that he wants to continue to surround me with women,” Martinez told People magazine back in December when the couple revealed they were expecting.
Since joining the "Dancing With the Stars" cast last season, Martínez has endeared himself to America.
As the show progressed, “Dancing With the Stars " drew 18 million viewers a week, giving the audience a first-hand look at the Iraq war veteran with an infectious positive attitude.
Martínez was severely burned over more than 40 percent of his body when the Humvee he was driving for the U.S. Army struck a land mine. He underwent numerous surgeries over years of recovery, but that didn't stop him from taking home the trophy. Martínez danced like his injuries had happened to somebody else.
