Emily Maynard has finally found the man she wants to spend the rest of her life with! The ‘Bachelorette’ alum’s handsome boyfriend, Tyler Johnson, popped the question to her on Jan. 4, and of course she said yes!
The third time’s a charm! After two failed engagements to Bachelor Brad Womack and Bachelorette winner Jef Holm, Emily Maynard realized the man of her dreams had been right in front of her all along. Emily and fiance Tyler Johnson met several months before she started filming The Bachelorette in 2012, but didn’t start seeing each other until after her split from Jef later that year. It’s so great that Emily and Tyler reunited!
Emily Maynard Is Engaged To Tyler Johnson: ‘We’re Really Excited’
Tyler asked Emily to marry him with five gorgeous diamond bands that the bride-to-be thought were absolutely perfect, Us Weekly reports. “I’ve had enough engagement rings,” Emily jokes to the site. The former reality TV star, who is a mom to daughter Ricki, 8, knows Tyler, 27, will be an amazing husband and father.
“We’re really excited!! He proposed to me at home and gave both Ricki and me rings,” she says. “It was so sweet! Ricki loves him more than she likes me! Emily is so over the moon for Tyler and she can’t wait to start her life with him. “We definitely are looking to get married sooner rather than later,” Emily says. “No point in waiting!”
Jef Holm Explains Why He & Emily Maynard Broke Up
Emily and her Bachelorette sweetheart Jef Holm split up six months after she starred on The Bachelorette, and things got pretty nasty shortly after their breakup. But after the dust settled, Jef had some lovely things to say about Emily.
“She’s a great girl,” Jef told Wetpaint. “It didn’t work out with us, but she’s a great girl.”
“Ultimately, we wanted different things,” Jef added. “I ultimately wish the best for her. And it’s a true testament to maturity, I think, that we can stay friends afterwards and wish the best for each other.”
It sounds like Jef just wasn’t a good match for Emily — but hopefully Tyler is!
We’re so happy for Emily and her new fiance! How about you, HollywoodLifers? Do you think Tyler is the right man for Emily? Let us know!
