JR Martinez was so focused on winning Dancing With The Stars that he didn’t have time to spill the beans about his girlfriend’s pregnancy.
The DWTS’ champion and Diana Gonzalez-Jones are expecting a baby girl in the spring. JR, 28, announced the pregnancy in early December, but he’s actually known since September. “I kept it under wraps and focused on my dancing,” he said.
“[But] even when I was dancing, I still made time to go to her doctor appointments with her,” he added. “I would tell Karina, ‘Hey I need to push rehearsal back an hour…’ I was so focused mentally, emotionally, on Dancing with the Stars, and then I was also processing, ‘Whoa, I’m going to be a dad!” That’s a lot of information to process at one time!”
And the veteran of the war in Iraq is eagerly looking forward to becoming a father and has big plans for his daughter-to-be.”I’m thinking I’m going to have my girl play sports. I’m going to have her be active,” JR told Us Weekly. “Maybe [she'll] go to Karina Smirnoff‘s dance studio for lessons one day!”
