Emily Maynard Has Really Big News

by Nicole Pomarico

Is it just me, or is there something in the Bachelor Nation water lately? Yet another alum from the show is announcing that she's expecting a child, and she seems super thrilled about it. Yep, it's true: Former Bachelorette Emily Maynard is pregnant, and this time, she'll be blogging about her pregnancy experiences in a special baby blog for People. After welcoming her adorable son, Jennings, last year, Maynard and husband Tyler Johnson are now anxiously awaiting the arrival of Maynard's third child and their second child together.

And even though the 30-year-old mom totally acknowledges that it's really soon to be pregnant again less than a year after Jennings — who's now 10 months old — was born, she also mentions that it was always part of her plan to have more children. And isn't it kind of cool that her two youngest kids will be so close in age? Although Maynard didn't offer up too many details about her baby-to be, she did mention that Jennings will be 15 months old when the baby's born, which means her due date must be sometime around August. Fortunately, that gives her plenty of time to prep for her new little one, especially while juggling a toddler at the same time.

This awesome news is definitely a surprise, but it sounds like the whole family is excited about their newest member, especially Ricki. Maynard wrote:

Tyler comes from a family of four boys and they couldn’t be closer, so I’m really looking forward to Jennings having a built-in best friend, whether it’s a boy or a girl. Ricki is really hoping it’s a girl so she can teach her how to be a tomboy and play soccer!

The rest of us should be pretty excited about the news, too, since Maynard might be one of the most adorable, dedicated Bachelor moms out there. Congrats, Maynard and Johnson! I can't wait for the ridiculously cute baby pics that are undoubtedly in our future.
