He won the coveted Mirror Ball, and now he says his baby is definitely going to be a dancer!
Dancing With The Stars alum J.R. Martinez announced he’s going to be a first-time dad with girlfriend Diana Gonzalez-Jones, and he revealed to reporters at the 2012 SAG Awards that he’s going to teach his child to dance! “Absolutely, once Nancy Grace found out she was like, ‘Is this going to be a Mirror Ball baby?'” he revealed.
J.R. also dished on the news about fellow dancing celeb Kristen Cavallari is expecting, too. “Yeah! What’s in the water?” he exclaimed. “There is something in the water! I know her and Jay got back together and that is great for them. We will have to put both our kids in a dancing school.”
The couple is ready for their baby girl. “We are tossing around a couple [names] but not set on anything, there has been no fights about that yet,” J.R. explained. “It’s been pretty fun!”
As for raising a girl over a boy, J.R. says there’s a lot more to worry about. “Girls, there is so much that goes with them,” he explained. “Boys, I think, I mean I don’t know, are easier. Just throw them out in the world, and they figure it out. Girls, there is so much more that goes into it — beauty products, you got to learn about routines, worry about dating and emotions.”
But he won’t necessarily be a strict dad. “I think every guy thinks they will be, but when that little girl comes out its a different story,” he said. “I will try to be, hopefully we will teach her to have a good eye on those things.”
For now, though, the couple are just preparing for her arrival rather than make marriage plans. “Yeah, we have talked about it, but she made it very clear and she said she isn’t walking down the aisle with a bump,” he revealed. “So we will wait for the baby to come out and she wants her body back and I want my body back.”
