Stephen Lovekin/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Dancing With the Stars winner J.R. Martinez has something to look forward to next spring—the birth of his daughter.

The Iraq war vet and his girlfriend Diana Jones are expecting their first child together, according to People magazine.

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

The couple met in 2008 while working on the soap opera All My Children.

Martinez played an Iraq war veteran while Jones worked as an executive assistant on staff.

“I just have been looking for this great guy with these great qualities and he’s been right next to me the whole time,” Jones said in a Nightline interview in November.
