Former “Bachelorette” star Emily Maynard Johnson just revealed big news, and it is not about the book she has coming out this week. Emily went on “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette” as a single mom of one daughter, and she welcomed a baby boy last summer with husband Tyler. Now, she’s expecting again.
Emily Maynard Johnson shared the big news via People and through her social media pages. Emily married Tyler Johnson in June 2014, and they welcomed baby Jennings Tyler in July 2015. It looks like summer is a fabulous time for the Johnson family, as their new addition is due this coming summer.
The former “Bachelorette” star never hid her desire to have more children during her runs on the ABC franchise. She initially became engaged to Brad Womack and wanted babies right away, but their relationship fizzled just a few months later. Emily then became engaged to Jef Holm, and that relationship also ended quickly.
Me, my new #book and my new bump are here at #PeopleNow to chat about #ISaidYes today! 🙂 Will air later this week, but you can see some behind the scenes NOW on my #Snapchat! (Snap name: EmilyGibsonMay). Comment #ISaidYes if you ordered the book, out today!! @peoplemag
Now, however, Emily is living life mostly away from television cameras and she seems happier than ever. In her new People blog, she jokes about having missed the memo that women tend to be quite fertile right after childbirth and she says that Jennings and the new baby will be about 15 months apart in age.
Johnson is realistic about the fact that having another baby so soon will make things rather chaotic, but “Bachelorette” fans know she is also thrilled beyond words. Emily adds that even a couple of weeks after Jennings was born, she was already thinking about wanting another. However, she didn’t intend for it to happen so quickly.
Emily has already been promoting her book, “I Said Yes,” but she managed to hide her baby bump until this big announcement. “Bachelorette” fans may remember that she waited for a while to reveal her pregnancy with Jennings as well. Franchise fans are thrilled for Emily Maynard Johnson over her baby news and can’t wait for updates.
