When J.R. Martinez learned that he and his girlfriend, Diana Gonzalez-Jones, were having a girl, he couldn t help but smile.

“God has a tremendous sense of humor that he wants to continue to surround me with women,” says Martinez, 28. “I was raised by a single mom so I think I’m sensitive to women. I just like spending time with women. I like to talk with women and listen to what they have to say.”

Even though the baby’s arrival is several months away, the Iraq war veteran-turned actor and Dancing With the Stars champ is already making plans for his little girl.
