Emily is ready to uproot her 5-year-old girl  — and take her away from her grandparents — because she’s madly in love! Is this the best thing for little Ricki?

Emily Maynard is headed to the Lone Star State! Bachelor Brad Womack, 38, has always been open and very adamant that he will not start a family anywhere other than his hometown of Austin. Now Life & Style reports that Emily, 25, is following her heart and moving with her 5-year-old daughter Ricki to the college town.

“Emily feels like the best thing to do is to give this a real shot and put her heart into it by moving to Austin for the summer,” a source tells the magazine. “She’s going to get her own condo there. She’s not moving in with him.

Brad took to his Twitter on March 29 to shoot down rumors that he was going to move to Charlotte, N.C., to be near Emily.

“Definitely not moving to NC … beautiful city but I’m blessed to have a wonderful career in AUS.”

Brad and his twin brother own four bars in Austin and he feels it’s too difficult for him to move. But keep in mind, Ricki is in school in Charlotte, and her grandparents live nearby.

“I know love is a compromise, but that’s the only thing that I was very adamant about,” Brad tells Life & Style. “I have some very strong roots there. I don’t want to relocate. I have a career in Austin.”

Do you think it’s selfish that Brad wants Emily to move to Austin or do you think it’s the logical thing to do?
