Congrats Are in Order for Emily Maynard!

Congratulations are in order for The Bachelorette star Emily Maynard! Emily Maynard and her husband Tyler Johnson are expecting their first child together. Maynard already has a 9-year-old daughter, Ricki, from a previous marriage to her high school sweetheart, Ricky Hendrick, who died in a plane crash in 2004. Maynard exclusively spoke to Us Weekly about the pregnancy announcement. The former reality star told the site, "We're super excited!" Well, that's a bit different for a reality star. Where's the live TV reveal or the sponsored tweet?

This is just another milestone of cuteness for the couple. Johnson proposed to Maynard on his family farm in January 2014, giving rings to both Maynard and her daughter. Aaawww. The two are have been husband and wife for six months after getting married at a June 2014 wedding.

The family now resides in Charlotte, North Carolina, living a relatively low-key life away from all of the Bachelor madness. Hopefully the couple keeps all of their fans in the loop as they reach more milestones in their relationship with the impending arrival of this new baby. It looks like 2015 is going to be a very exciting year for Maynard, Johnson, and soon-to-be big sister Ricki! This is such great news for the three of them and I am sure that Bachelor Nation is overjoyed. Congratulations to the entire family!
