JR Martinez is a married man! The former Dancing With the Stars winner and All My Children actor married his long-time girlfriend and mother of their child, Diana Gonzalez-Jones, in a romantic wedding in Tulum, Mexico.

The groom, who was crowned winner of season 13 of DWTS in 2011, and his bride said their vows in a beachside ceremony, according to wedding photos obtained by Daily Mail. The groom, an Iraqi war veteran, donned a classic gray suit and blush pocket square, while the bride stunned in a jewel-embroidered, V-neck wedding dress with a mermaid silhouette. Both were all-smiles during the ceremony, and it appears that the event included the couple's young daughter. How precious!

The couple, who have been dating for over a decade, got engaged in November 2017. The two shared the exciting news on Instagram at the time. “It wasn’t easy but we did it. Now we’re doing it. 💍 Who cares that our daughter was crying due to the fact that she fell right before and hurt her knee. We were basking in joy!” the 34-year-old captioned the series of shots of himself, his bride, and their daughter, Lauryn Anabelle, five.

In 2011, Gonzalez-Jones opened up to People about their relationship. "All this time I was looking for the perfect guy, and I had him right next to me,” she said. “We were so good as friends that romantically, we just clicked right away.”

The two temporarily split, however, 18 months after the birth of their daughter in 2014. "Diana and I have ended our relationship. However, we are committed to working together to raise our daughter in a healthy and happy environment,” Martinez said in a statement at the time. Obviously, the pair eventually reunited and it's been blue skies ever since. Congrats to the happy couple!
