Bundle of joy.

J.R. Martinez’s daughter Lauryn Anabelle was born on May 2. In the latest issue of People, the proud papa shows her off.

In the magazine, Martinez says, “The minute she was born I was like, ‘This is where I’m meant to be.’ I felt excitement and love and it was all about her.”

Martinez goes on to talk about how easy he and his girlfriend Diana Gonzalez-Jones have had it thus far with their newborn, who they’ve nicknamed Belle. For more of the interview, pick up a copy of the June 18 issue of People, on stands today.
