Former Bachelorette star Emily Maynard is taking another shot at finding true love. The Southern belle has confirmed to ET that she's engaged to boyfriend Tyler Johnson.
This marks Maynard's fourth engagement. Her first fiancé, race car driver Ricky Hendrick, died tragically in a plane crash in 2004 before the couple could walk down the aisle. She and Hendrick had a daughter named Ricki, who is now age eight. Her second engagement came at the end of The Bachelor's 15th season when she accepted Brad Womack's proposal only to return his engagement ring shortly thereafter. In 2012, Maynard became engaged to Jef Holm on the season finale of The Bachelorette, but split up months later.
"I've had enough engagement rings!" she told Us. "We're really excited!! He proposed to me at home and gave both Ricki and me rings. It was so sweet! Ricki loves him more than she likes me!"
The 27-year-old management consultant reportedly popped the question to Maynard with five diamond-studded bands. It's no wonder this Bachelorette is ready for a wedding! "We definitely are looking to get married sooner rather than later," she told Us. "No point in waiting."
The newly engaged couple met right before Maynard went on to shoot The Bachelorette, but did not start dating until after her split from Holm.
What do you think? Is the fourth time a charm for Maynard?
