It seems as if it was just yesterday that Emily Maynard and her husband Tyler Johnson tied the knot. But it is funny how time passes. The couple, who celebrated their first wedding anniversary, this year in June welcomed their first baby boy last month. Yes guys, the former The Bachelorette contestant Emily has given birth to her son with husband Tyler Johnson.
Maynard, aged 29, shared the news of the birth of her baby boy via Instagram where she posted an adorable snap of the infant snuggling up against her in a hospital bed. The proud mother shared the picture with her fans with a heart touching caption that said: 'God is good. My heart can't even handle it.'
The baby was fast asleep and was wrapped in a white blanket with a white cap beside his mother. The television personality was seen keeping her well-manicured hands on her cute little baby. The mother of two was over the moon as she became mother for the second time.
The baby boy is Maynard’s second child and first son. She has a 10 year old daughter named Ricki from her relationship with her former late fiancé Ricky Hendrick who died in a plane crash in 2004. The Bachelorette did not know that she was pregnant until her NASCAR driver fiancé’s tragic death. The newborn is her first child with her husband Tyler Johnson. The name of the baby has not been revealed yet.
The jewelry designer earned the popularity she now enjoys when she joined the eighth season of The Bachelorette after breaking up with her then fiancé, Brad Womack, of The Bachelor. Maynard is the first single mother to be featured as The Bachelorette. At the end of the show, she got engaged to one of the former contestants Jef Holm in 2012. But their relationship didn’t work and they split the same year. Finally, the gorgeous lady found her true love in Tyler, an auto consultant. The pair started dating after they met at their church. They married each other in a country wedding last year.
There’s a very interesting story behind the couple’s initial days. Emily who runs her own personal blog gave the detail of her and Tyler’s meeting and more on the blog. She shared several beautiful details after the couple’s engagement.
“I used to teach a jewelry making class at a middle school that my church adopted and Tyler was one of the coordinators of the program,” she wrote. “Well, every Thursday I could count on him to come help me carry all of my beads out to my car at the end of class. The only problem was he was so good looking that I could barely make eye contact with him, much less have a normal conversation.”
She also wrote that a person like her, who can easily pop up conversation with people, could hardly speak to him, “but for some reason I was so intimidated by him and the fact that he showed me no interest at all just made it that much worse!”
So, for her, the father of her child was a man who was rather hard to impress. Though the couple met each other before her days in the show (The Bachelor or The Bachelorette) they didn’t date. It was after her break up with Jef Holm that Maynard decided to give it a go with Tyler. Due to Tyler’s low profile and simple lifestyle, many of her fans didn’t know much about him. But the handsome hunk is a loving father and a husband who showers love to Maynard and her daughter Ricki as well.
The couple is happily married to each other and very much in love. And now that Tyler junior has made his entrance in their small family, the proud parents can’t really hold back their joy. The reality star, who has the net worth of around $5 million, won't have any problem raising her two kids with her husband.
