‘The Bachelorette’ alum Emily Maynard pregnant with second child!

Emily Maynard -Mrs. Carter: There’s some great news coming out today from the world of Emily Maynard!

In a post on her official Instagram, the former star of “The Bachelorette” confirmed that she and her husband Tyler Johnson are expecting. This is her first child with Johnson, but she has a daughter named Ricki from her engagement to the late Ricky Hendrick. This was a part of her story when she first appeared on Brad Womack’s season of “The Bachelor,” and was eventually his choice to win the whole competition. These two parties eventually split, and it was later that she began her own stint as the star of the ABC series. She eventually became engaged to Jef Holm, but these two also split after several months together.

Eventually, Emily ended up marrying Johnson, a man who she actually knew prior to her time on reality TV. Since they were married, they have lived much more of a low-key life away from the cameras in North Carolina. Still, they have all found a way to be a very happy family, and that is what is important at the end of the day.

It is nice to have some good news related to the “Bachelor” franchise to close off this week, given that previously, we had to deal with the sad news that Andi Dorfman and Josh Murray’s relationship was over after a few months together. The good news for Andi is that Emily shows that there are still plenty of other chances to find love post-reality TV.
