American Idol's Fantasia Welcomes Son, DWTS' J.R. Martinez and Girlfriend Expecting Daughter
Justin Guarini and Jason Castro aren’t the only American Idol alumni to welcome new babies this year. Fantasia Barrino, season three winner, gave birth last week to her second child, Dallas Zavier Barrino.
Dallas was welcomed to the world on December 13 at the Presbyterian Hospital in North Carolina. He weighed 7lbs, 9 ounces and was 21 inches long. “I feel so blessed my son was born healthy,” she told PEOPLE. Congratulations to Fantasia and family!
In other baby news, Dancing With the Stars winner J.R. Martinez is expecting a daughter with girlfriend, Diana Gonzalez-Jones. When J.R. learned of the news, he was completely comfortable having grown up with so many women around him.
“God has a tremendous sense of humor that he wants to continue to surround me with women,” he told PEOPLE. “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.”
The baby isn’t due until the late spring/summer, but J.R. is ready to show her “she can do anything and be anything she wants to be.”
What a great year for J.R.! First winning over America’s hearts and the mirror ball trophy, and now this exciting news! Congrats to J.R. and Diana!
