“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.”
“I can’t wait to show her everything,” Martinez says. “I want to get her into sports and I want her to know she can do anything and be anything she wants to be.”
Most of all, Martinez says, he is looking forward to fatherhood so he can “pass on to my child things that have been passed on to me.”
“It’s a beautiful gift we ve been given,” he adds.
