J.R. Martinez and Diana Gonzalez-Jones confirmed that they will be expecting a baby girl! Though they did disclose the two names that they are considering for their newest addition, the couple did make a few sarcastic remarks that have many fans relieved.

At the Screen Actors Guild Awards the couple stated, “We won’t name her Apple Cider or Salami. It won’t be our favorite dish or our favorite getaway or favorite car or show.”

Does Martinez mean to tell us that he will be taking a traditional approach to naming his soon-to-be, unlike Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s most recent addition, Blue Ivy?

The 28-year-old Dancing with the Stars winner told PEOPLE, “We have narrowed it down to two names and we agree on it, which is good. I hear that traditionally, when it comes to the name picking, that’s when the disagreements occur. But I think it will be a nice flow.”

Gonzalez, who is closing in on her third trimester says that she is beginning to show and her little baby girl is beginning to show that she’s there, too! “Now, she’s kicking all the time. She’s like, ‘I’m here, I’m coming,” said Gonzalez.

Congratulations to J.R, Diana, and their precious baby girl!

What do Mob Wives and Gene Simmons Family Jewels have in common? They are both reality television shows that have swept the nation. Both shows allow the viewer to get a sneak peak and sometimes in depth looks into the lives of these television stars that have opened their doors to the world. Not only do we get an up-close and personal look at the stars themselves but also their families, more specifically their children. After the show snags your attention, you cannot turn away. That is the beauty of reality TV.

In the sixth season of Gene Simmons Family Jewels, the Kiss rocker opens up about his 28-year relationship with Shannon Tweed and explains how he and Shannon believe in the importance of keeping kids in check as they have done so themselves.
Gene and longtime partner Shannon Tweed, a former Playboy Playmate have never tied the knot but have shared a life together for almost three decades. Together they share two children and have done a great job raising them. Their son Nick was born on January 22nd, 1989 and their daughter Sophia, just a few years younger was born July 7th, 1992. Some might ask how Gene is able to manage a relationship with Shannon and his children when the cameras are in the house at all times? Gene explains in a recent interview with Parade Magazine that it is important to be strict when raising children, “We’re very strict. You behave well because you’re not allowed not to. It’s as simple as that. There are no drugs, no booze, and no cigarettes because you’re not allowed to. You don’t talk potty talk because you’re not allowed to. The idea that kids slam the door to their rooms on these TV shows is the height of lunacy…negotiating with your children? Absolutely not,” he said.
