Emily Maynard & Jef Holm: I’m Glad Their Relationship Is Still Strong

Fri, August 24, 2012 6:40pm EST by 1 Comment

Despite rumors of a blow-out argument last week, Emily and Jef seem to be madly in love. Or, they’re just putting on a happy face for the camera.

Since getting engaged during the season finale of The Bachelorette, Emily Maynard and Jef Holm have looked like the picture perfect all-American couple. The two are often captured smiling, holding hands and playing with Emily’s seven-year-old daughter Ricki. All that’s missing is a yellow lab frolicking beside them in the breeze.

Though Jef may appear to be a loving boyfriend and doting soon-to-be step-dad, fans of the franchise know that looks can definitely be deceiving. Few couples from the reality show have actually survived in the real world away from the glitz and glamour of fantasy dates.

Reports recently surfaced that the couple got into a heated argument while the two were visiting Jef’s family in Pawleys Island, South Carolina because Emily had been sexting with another man. Though both were quick to shoot down the rumor, Jef’s brother, Mike Holm told Us Weekly that the argument did take place. “I can tell you that it’s all 100% true,” he revealed. “I was there and I heard the fight and watched the whole thing go down, Emily leaving and everything.”

Jef vehemently denied his brother’s story, writing, “It’s crazy what people will do, even family members, to see their name in a magazine,” on his Twitter account. A few hours later, Jef celebrated Ricki’s first day of first grade with Emily, Ricki and the parents of Emily’s late fiancee. The group even posed for a picture with Ricki’s first grade teacher. “First day of first grade was a success. Met the Hendricks, nicest people ever. #greatday @emilygmaynard,” Jef tweeted.

The Utah-based entrepreneur also posted a photo of himself driving Ricki and her friends home from school with the caption, “Carpool dad.”

While it’s hard to believe in the idea of happily ever ever, especially when a relationship unfolds on national TV, I think that Jef and Emily are still going strong. If there was trouble in paradise, Jef would have to be very cruel to continue the charade in front of Emily’s young daughter. Ricki is becoming more attached to him by the day and it would be unfair to string her along if he wasn’t planning on sticking around.

Do YOU think that Jef and Emily are having relationship problems?

They are just going thru the ups and downs that any real relationship has. I think that they are both very devoted to each other and there seems to be great love. No family is perfect as they have already shared, but they seem more in love than ever. My prayer are with them.
