Former Bachelorette Emily Maynard welcomes second child

By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 07/16/2015 

The Bachelorette's eighth-season star Emily Maynard has given birth to her second child.

Ricki, Maynard's nine-year-old daughter from a previous engagement, now has a big brother. Maynard, 29, announced on Instagram Thursday she's welcomed a son with husband Tyler Johnson.

"God is good. My heart can't even handle it," Maynard captioned a photo of herself holding the baby.

One week ago, Maynard captioned a cute photo of Johnson installing a car seat on social media, referencing how unbelievable it is that she and "the hot guy from church" ended up together. The pair got engaged in January 2014 -- which marked Maynard's fourth engagement -- and wed six months later.

Maynard first announced her pregnancy in January 2015 when she posted a selfie saying "too much pizza" while showing off her little baby bump. She teased the sex of her baby in March with a picture of a gender reveal cake but didn't formally announce the news she was expecting a boy until May.

Despite their excitement, the couple still struggled at the time to pick out a baby name.

"I told Tyler that [if] he gets to pick the last name for everybody, then I should pick the first name and if he wanted to pick the first name, then it can take my last name and be a Maynard!" she joked. "He did not like that. We're still compromising."

Maynard was previously engaged to the late Ricky Hendrick, fifteenth-season The Bachelor star Brad Womack and eighth-season The Bachelorette winner Jef Holm.

Hendrick, a former NASCAR driver, died in a plane crash in 2004 when she was pregnant with Ricki. Maynard then competed on The Bachelor and won Womack's heart, but the couple split in May 2011.

Maynard met Johnson a few months before she decided to continue her pursuit of finding love on The Bachelorette, which filmed in March 2012 and ended with her selecting Holm. Maynard and Holm broke up in October 2012, and then she began dating Johnson.

"For so long I felt so embarrassed and ashamed about that TV stuff," Maynard previously said of her messy history of relationships. "The grace that my faith has given me to wipe that all away and not find worth in that and find it through God, Tyler has been a great example of that for me. He has truly lived out God's grace every day."
