J.R. Martinez and his girlfriend Diana Gonzalez-Jones have decided to call it quits, just 18 months after the birth of their daughter, Lauryn Anabelle.

“Diana and I have ended our relationship,” he told People“However, we are committed to working together to raise our daughter in a healthy and happy environment.”

The Dancing With The Stars champion and actor posted a Facebook status acknowledging the difficulty of change.

“People change it’s a part of life,” he wrote. “but sometimes its [sic] easier to hold on to the memories of who they were rather then to realize who they have become...”

The 30-year-old Iraq War veteran met Gonzalez-Jones in 2008 when he joined the cast of All My Children. She was working as an assistant to the show’s executive producer. They dated for four years before deciding to end their relationship earlier this year.
