In the intimate images, captured by Lauren Guilford, the new mom cradles her just born baby against her chest as proud dad Leonard looks lovingly down at his partner and child.

Martinez announced her pregnancy in October, revealing that she learned that she was pregnant three months into her relationship with Leonard.

She said her pregnancy was unplanned, explaining, “I was in disbelief and thought, ‘Is this really happening?'”

She continued, “I immediately called Grayston and then went across the street to the Dollar Tree and bought two more pregnancy tests. They, of course, were both positive.”

Martinez broke the news to Leonard on Father’s Day. She told PureWow, “I was crying … and said, ‘You’re going to be a dad!’ We hugged, and it was the first time we really got to be overjoyed. We were finally able to celebrate and soak up all of that emotion.”

She raved about welcoming a baby, calling it “legitimately a dream come true” and explaining, “It’s the one thing that I’ve known with certainty for so long.”
