Dancing with the Stars champ J.R. Martinez is a dad!

The soldier-turned-soap star and girlfriend Diana Gonzalez-Jones welcomed a baby girl — Lauryn Anabelle Martinez — Wednesday evening in Los Angeles.

“She’s already got a nickname: Belle,” the Georgia native told People, adding the baby weighed 7 pounds, 13 ounces and measured 21 inches. “She has a couple of cute little freckles on her cheeks, a full head of hair and the cutest little lips.

“It’s just amazing to see her, finally. She’s beautiful.”

The 28-year-old’s life story is a harrowing one: at 19, serving in Iraq, J.R. suffered burns to more than 40 percent of his body after driving over a land mine.

After more than 30 surgeries, Martinez has embarked on a career in entertainment — he was named one of People magazine’s Sexiest Men Alive last year — and as an advocate for veterans.
