What could be better than a mirrorball trophy? How about a visit from the stork! Dancing with the Stars winner J.R. Martinez and his girlfriend Diana Gonzalez-Jones are expecting their first child together next spring, People reports.

"We found out just last week it's a girl and we are over the moon," Martinez says. "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 on the set of All My Children, when he landed a role and she worked as an assistant to the soap's executive producer, in 2008, and became close friends. They took a turn for romance last year. "We were so good as friends that romantically, we just clicked right away. There was no adjustment period," Gonzalez-Jones says.  

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