Like many new dads, J.R. Martinez can’t help but gush over his 2-month-old daughter, Lauryn Anabelle, or “Belle” for short. “She is so aware of her surroundings!” he tells the new issue of In Touch, on newsstands now.
Luckily for Belle, her surroundings include a stylish — and serene — room with distressed floors, unique light fixtures and dark wood accents. “There’s a soft rug in the middle of the floor that’s so comfortable,” J.R tells In Touch. “We plan on spending lots of tummy time there in the future!”
The Dancing With the Stars winner and his girlfriend of four years, Diana Gonzalez-Jones, 30, worked with design experts Little Crown Interiors to create the luxurious nest, which J.R. admits is now his favorite spot in the house. “Diana fell in love with a lamb theme,” adds J.R. “Then her mother pointed out LAMB is an acronym for Lauryn Anabelle Martinez Belle.”
And J.R. proudly admits to In Touch that he is reveling in each new milestone his little girl hits. “The biggest thing,” he says, “is when Belle started smiling.”
