Thursday May 3, 2012

JR Martinez and his partner Diana Gonzalez-Jones have welcomed a little girl.

Diana gave birth on Wednesday May 2 in Los Angeles, with the baby weighing 7lb, 13oz.

The couple have named their new born Lauryn Anabelle Martinez.

The Dancing With The Stars champion told People of his delight at the new arrival:

"She has a couple of cute little freckles on her cheeks, a full head of hair and the cutest little lips."

The Iraq war veteran, who sustained severe burns to 40 percent of his body when the armoured vehicle he was driving went over a landmine, continued: "It’s just amazing to see her, finally. She’s beautiful."

JR and Diane first met in 2008 and announced they were expecting their first child in December 2011.
