Dancing With the Stars winner J.R. Martinez is expecting his first child with girlfriend Diana Gonzalez-Jones, People reported today. “We found out just last week it’s a girl and we are over the moon,” Martinez said.

Martinez, an Iraq war vet, first met Gonzalez-Jones in 2008, when he joined the cast of All My Children to play Brot Monroe. At the time, Gonzalez-Jones was working as an assistant to the daytime drama’s executive producer. The pair started dating last year.

Earlier this year, Martinez and teammate Karina Smirnoff won the 13th season of Dancing With The Stars, beating out a roster of celebrity contestants including Rob Kardashian and Chaz Bono.
