Emily Maynard Is Pregnant With Baby Number 2

Hurray -- our favorite Bachelorette is expecting another bundle of joy! Emily Maynard has confirmed that she is pregnant with her second child with husband Tyler Johnson and we couldn't be more excited. The 28-year-old has endured a lot of heartache and disappointment over the last few years, and if anyone deserves happiness, it's this fabulous mom.

Maynard's baby will already have the best babysitter on the planet: her 9-year-old sister Ricki, whom the reality star raised on her own after her fiance and high school sweetheart Ricky Hendrick died in a plane crash in 2004.

Proving she is as strong as a rock, Maynard didn't close herself off to love after the tragedy and won the heart of Brad Womack on season 15 of The Bachelor. Their relationship lasted barely one year, but it opened the door for Maynard to gain even more fame as the star of The Bachelorette, which introduced her to her next love, Jef Holm.

I think you know what happened next: Emily and Jef split in 2012 after a very short engagement. But like every other obstacle Emily has faced, that didn't stop her from moving on.

They say good things come to those who wait, and Emily's life has been proof of that. All of her breakups led to a strong, stable relationship with Johnson, who sweetly proposed to her last January by presenting rings for both her and Ricki.

Emily deserves to be happy and we are thrilled to see her family growing.

Are you surprised to hear that Emily Maynard is pregnant so soon after getting married?
