Brad flies Emily to Austin to convince her not to leave him — if it doesn’t work, ‘I’ll be broken,’ he admits!

Bachelor Brad Womack seems like wants more than anything to win back his on-and-off again fiancee Emily Maynard. “I am very much in love,” Brad tells Life & Style magazine.

Brad refuses to admit that it’s over: “I’ll be broken. I really will. So I hope it doesn’t get to that point.”

That’s why Brad flew Emily out to Austin to spend some time together and work on getting things back on track.

But did Brad’s plan work? When Emily arrived at the airport on April 29, Brad picked her up — they didn’t even kiss or hug each other! Shortly after, Emily and Brad were spotted at the Oasis Restaurant on Lake Travis. They were still tense on this lunch date, appearing awkward and uncomfortable, a witness noted.

That night, Brad and Emily went to dinner at Uchiko restaurant, where they didn’t take seats next to each other at a table.

When they were caught eating breakfast on May 2, both Emily and Brad refused to answer questions about wedding plans. Instead, Brad responded: “We’re taking it one day at a time.”

It seems that the only emotion between them during this visit poured out when Brad took Emily back to the airport and had to say goodbye — that’s when they shared a tearful hug.

Brad’s mom Pamela explained the situation to a friend. “She says he’s really ready for a family and now has to deal with this,” says the insider. “She says Emily isn’t who she acted like on the show.”

But a friend of Brad’s affirms that the two-time Bachelor will do whatever he can to get Emily back. “He’s told me, ‘I still love her,'” says the friend. “That hasn’t changed — he’s very passionate.”

And Brad’s making the biggest effort to keep her around. “Brad has been laying on the charm and it’s getting to her,” a source tells OK! magazine. “Emily was all set to move on but he just does not want to let her go and he’s doing everything in his power to get her back.”
