Congrats, J.R.! The Iraq war vet and his girlfriend are expecting their first child together!

J.R. Martinez is having quite the year! Last month he took home the trophy on Dancing With The Stars, and now he’s announced that he’ll be a first-time dad with girlfriend Diana Gonzalez-Jones next spring! “We found out just last week it’s a girl, and we are over the moon,” he revealed to People. “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.”

The 28-year-old met Diana when he appeared on All My Children in 2008. She was an assistant to the soap’s executive producer, and the two became good friends and started dating last year.

“We were so good as friends that romantically, we just clicked right away,” Diana said. “There was no adjustment period.”

J.R. can’t believe what a great year it’s been for him: “2011 has been full of a lot of surprises and opportunities and ultimately, a lot of blessings,” he said. “Diana and I were just asking ourselves, ‘How is 2012 going to top 2011?’ Well, we have our answer!”
