In their first shocking post-TV interview, the engaged for-the-moment couple insists they’re in love despite a ‘torturous’ relationship and canceled wedding!
But what’s really strange is that Bachelor Brad Womack, 38, and Emily Maynard, 25, say they’re already “trying” for a family despite also admitting to People magazine that their relationship “hasn’t been a fairytale.”
“I definitely want more kids,” Emily — who already has a 5-year-old daughter, Ricki — says. “I’m ready.”
The couple explains that they would get in a huge fight every Monday night after Emily would watch The Bachelor. “He had a tendency to say the same thing to a couple girls. So I felt less and less special,” Emily confessed.
The result: “We’d break up at night, and then in the morning, we’d forget about it,” laughs Emily now.
Brad explains how bad it got — “There have been numerous times where either she or I have said, ‘To hell with it. It’s just too difficult.’[And] we’ve thrown in the towel.
The pair insists however that “love pulled” them back together. The fact that Emily had girlfriends watching the show and texting her that Brad looked “so in love” with the other finalist, Chantal O’Brien, didn’t help either.
“Please, tell me [our relationship] isn’t a hoax,” Emily would plead with Brad — whoa!
Now, the couple plan to take their time before a wedding, after canceling a plan to elope in Anguilla. “I want to do it right. I don’t want it to be a secret. I want the bridesmaids, and I want my daughter to be a part of it,” says Emily. Aww!
Well considering that Brad already bought Emily flowers, Louboutin shoes and a Cartier bracelet worth several thousand dollars, Emily might as well enjoy the engagement.
Especially with Brad saying, “Em is the girl I’ve been looking for all my life.”
