DWTS Winner J.R. Martinez Is Going To Be A Dad!

War veteran J.R. Martinez continues to win in 2011!

Just a month after being declared the champion of Dancing With The Stars, JR is now expecting his first child with girlfriend Diana Gonzalez-Jones. The two are expecting a girl next Spring.

“We found out just last week it’s a girl and we are over the moon,” JR tells 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.”

JR, 28, met Diana when he landed a role on All My Children in 2008. She was working as an assistant on the soap at the time. The two first became close friends, before deciding to take their relationship to the next level last year.

“We were so good as friends that romantically, we just clicked right away.  There was no adjustment period,” Diana told PEOPLE earlier this year.  “2011 has been full of a lot of surprises and opportunities and ultimately, a lot of blessings,” adds JR.

Congrats to the two!
