Sources say that the 5-year-old has been spending a lot of time with nannies while her mom travels across the country to visit Brad Womack!

We get that it’s impossible to be in two places at once, but after spending weeks away from her daughter to film and do press for The Bachelor, don’t you think Emily Maynard should be home with her 5-year-old, Ricki? Her neighbor says Emily, 25, has been spending a lot of time in Los Angeles and Austin with Brad Womack while Ricki is at home in North Carolina with nannies.

Part of the reason Brad fell in love with the gorgeous blonde was her devotion to her adorable daughter, but recently that devotion seems to be pointed towards him only. After returning from her six week Bachelor shoot, Emily traveled back and forth from L.A. to film the After the Final Rose show and then decided to stay in Austin with Brad for the South By Southwest music festival.

“Emily’s mom came to stay at her house to take care of Ricki,” Emily’s neighbor Seirah Royin tells In Touch. And while Ricki was at home, Emily was in Austin with Brad last week partying it up at one of his bars with his twin brother and two of his friends.

So, should Emily keep flying back and forth or should she think about settling down with Brad in Austin? She said she doesn’t want to take Ricki away from her home, but it’s better to move than be without your only parent.
