Emily Maynard Engaged To Tyler Johnson

'Bachelorette' Star Emily Maynard Is Engaged!

Emily Maynard is no longer a "Bachelorette."

Maynard is engaged to boyfriend Tyler Johnson, E! News confirmed. He proposed to the blonde beauty right after New Year's at her home in Charlotte, N.C.

Johnson reportedly asked Maynard's parents for their daughter's hand in marriage before he popped the question, according to E! News. On the big day, he filled her house with flowers and candles. Then, he finally proposed with a diamond band encircled with stones.

"We're really excited!!" Maynard, who is mother to daughter Ricki, 8, told Us Weekly. "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!"

She uploaded a photo to Instagram with her new fiance on New Year's Day.

Maynard met Johnson, a management consultant, months before she began filming "The Bachelorette" Season 8, Us Weekly reported. During the show, she met and ultimately got engaged to Jeff Holm, whom she split from in October 2012. She began dating Johnson after the breakup.

This is the fourth engagement for the 27-year-old. She was previously engaged to Holm and "Bachelor" contestant Brad Womack. Her first engagement was to race car driver Ricky Hendrick, the father of her child, who died in a plane crash in 2004.

News of Maynard's latest relationship first surfaced in November in InTouch magazine. E! News reported they met at church.
