JR Martinez Future Baby Will Be the Luckiest Kid on Earth

JR Martinez

Celebrities announce pregnancies every other day and it's always joyous news, except when it happens to someone truly inspirational and deserving like JR Martinez, the former Iraqi vet turned DWTS champion. When impending parenthood happens to people like that you don't simply offer congratulations, you dance on the tables screaming YAYYYY!!! Martinez and his girlfriend Diana Gonzalez-Jones are expecting their first child next spring, and the couple are high as a kite over the news. But judging from all the Tweets and comments going around the web, I think his fans might be even more excited than they couple is ... if that's even possible!


Thrilled 2 hear JR Martinez is gonna be a dad. He's such an inspiration. Seems like a wonderful guy who will b a fab dad:) ... tweeted Guiliana Rancic yesterday. Martinez will likely never forget the year 2011, what with winning the latest season of Dancing With the Stars, and now this. He said in People:

2011 has been full of a lot of surprises and opportunities and ultimately, a lot of blessings. Diana and I were just asking ourselves, 'How is 2012 going to top 2011?'  Well, we have our answer!

As grateful as Martinez is for this blessing, his future child -- a girl! -- is equally blessed to have been given such an amazing father. For all that he endured in battle in Iraq, being burned over his entire face, only to triumph over those setbacks to become a successful actor and performer, Martinez is one of the best parental role models I could possibly think up for any child. He has seen and lived through so much strive and struggle in his young life, and knows what's truly important in life.

Congratulations, JR, on your latest role -- it's going to be your hardest but most fulfilling one yet!

Are you excited for JR? What other celebrities do you think will make amazing fathers some day?
