"They take each other to weddings and other functions and will definitely be spending the holidays together." So will the lovebirds be saying "I Do" anytime soon? The insider explains that Maynard's personal life has been plagued with drama after the reality star has gone public with relationships too quickly in the past, so she wants to keep this romance private for as long as possible.
The mother of one was previously engaged to during eighth season of the ABC show, which ended with a proposal from Jef Holm, although the couple later pulled the plug on their engagement, calling their breakup a "heartbreaking decision.""She's also had two public, broken engagements so she's definitely going to hold off on getting engaged again until they are very, very sure and very close to marriage," the source explains.
She was engaged to the late NASCAR driver Ricky Hendrick (father of her daughter, Ricki, 8), then to Bachelor Brad Womack and most recently to Jef Holm, the guy she picked on Season 8 of The Bachelorette. (Hendrick died in a plane crash in 2004 before Ricki was born.)Now, Us Weekly reports that Maynard is engaged to Tyler Johnson."We're really excited!! "He proposed to me at home and gave both Ricki and me rings. Maynard has yet to mention the happy news on her website or Twitter feed, although she posted a blog note Tuesday that she's sure 2014 is going to be "the best year ever!
"She shared a photo of herself and Johnson on Instagram ringing in the new year, but didn't show off a ring.
It was clear they were a couple and not just friends.” Wow!
Jef flew Katianna all the way to Arizona, and he introduced her to his best friend — it’s clearly getting serious! Emily was recently linked to NASCAR driver Jason White, whom she denies dating. 21, Emily tweeted, “Love it will not betray you, dismay or enslave you.
In fact, things are so serious between the two that Jef actually flew Katianna to Arizona for a double date with his BFF Arie Luyendyk Jr. Well, we already knew that Jef liked sorority girls!
Tyler arranged a romantic proposal for Emily – who was also briefly engaged to The Bachelor’s Brad Womack and The Bachelorette’s Jef Holm – and decorated her house in Charlotte with flowers and candles, according to E!
After two public broken engagements, Emily and Tyler, who met at church, are "very serious," according to a source close to the single mother: "He's met her daughter, Ricki, and they're already like a little family unit...
They take each other to weddings and will be spending the holidays together." As for whether she'll be headed to the altar with Tyler following her two broken reality TV engagements to Brad Womack and Jef Holm, respectively? Emily Maynard's personal life has been plagued with drama for years now, so she wants to keep the new romance private, and slow it down, for some time.
So thank you for giving me another chance on love,” Vanessa told Nick before he got down on one knee.
She knows this is exactly what a lot of people will be thinking when they see her photo, when they read this story, and certainly when they learn she’s written a book (titled “I Said Yes” and released Tuesday) that’s based largely on her experiences as the star of ABC’s “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette.” But the South Park stay-at-home mom – who finally found a husband when the cameras weren’t looking, whose life finally had returned to something resembling normal here in Charlotte – says she didn’t step back into the spotlight this winter for fame. “I really did not want to put myself out there again,” Maynard said, her face glowing in the afternoon light that streamed through the large windows at Forest Hill Church off Park Road.
