Congratulations are in order for "Dancing With the Stars" champ J.R. Martinez! He welcomed a baby girl on May 2 with girlfriend Diana Gonzalez-Jones, People confirms.

Lauryn Anabelle Martinez was born 7 pounds, 13 ounces, and is 21 inches long, and already has a nickname -- Belle.

Martinez, an Iraq war veteran who met Gonzalez-Jones on the set of "All My Children" in 2008, took home the coveted mirror ball trophy on the 13th season of ABC's "DWTS" in November 2011. But his "Dancing" title wasn't the only exciting thing happening in his life at the time -- he announced in December that he was going to be a dad.

"I can't wait to show her everything," Martinez told People about his unborn daughter in December. "I want to get her into sports and I want her to know she can do anything and be anything she wants to be."
