J.R. Martinez Says His Daughter Has Tamed His Workaholic Ways

Former Dancing with the Stars contestant J.R. Martinez and his girlfriend Diana Gonzalez-Jones welcomed their baby girl Anabelle six months ago.  The doting dad says that his new bundle of joy has helped him slow down his workaholic ways.

The new dad shares, “Before it was work, work, work and now [being a father has] given me a little bit of balance. It’s never been an issue for me to pick up my stuff and hit the road for two weeks at a time.  [But now,] having to still work and get in the car and be away from her is the hardest.”

J.R. says he hopes to expand his family even more – hopefully with a baby boy.  “It’d be nice to balance it out since we have a girl. Right now the girl has got me wrapped [around] her finger so it might be nice to have a boy so Diana can be wrapped around his finger.”

Aww, it sounds like fatherhood is going very well for J.R.!
