J.R. Martinez Baby

Congratulations to the ‘Dancing With The Stars’ champ — he’s now the proud father of baby Lauryn Anabelle with his girlfriend Diana Gonzalez-Jones!

Last time we heard from J.R. Martinez, he was triumphantly holding his giant mirror ball trophy for his season 13 Dancing With the Stars win (oh, and PS: We totally predicted it!) It’s another moment of bliss for J.R. and his girlfriend Diana Gonzalez-Jones, as they’re welcoming a new bundle of joy to their family! 

Lauryn Anabelle Martinez was born on May 2 in Los Angeles, PEOPLE reports. She weighed 7 lbs., 13 oz. and is 21 inches long.

“She’s already got a nickname — Belle,” Martinez, 28, tells PEOPLE, adding, “she has a couple of cute little freckles on her cheeks, a full head of hair and the cutest little lips.”

Prior to his DWTS fame, J.R. was an Iraq war vet and had a role on All My Children in 2008.

Welcome to the world, Lauryn Anabelle!
