The former eighth-season The Bachelorette star is expecting her first child with husband Tyler Johnson, Us Weekly reported.

"We're super excited!" she told Us.

Maynard, who's already mom to a nine-year-old daughter Ricki from a previous relationship, has a baby on the way only about six months after she and Johnson, an automotive management consultant, tied the knot at Johnson's family farm in Sharon, SC.

"God brought us together. He's given me such peace about everything. I'm so grateful I met him," Maynard, who took Johnson's name, told People in June 2014.

Maynard announced she had gotten engaged to Johnson in January 2014. He had proposed with five diamond-studded bands and it marked the fourth time Maynard had accepted an engagement ring from a man.

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.

Afterward, Maynard continued her pursuit of finding love on reality television when she starred as the Bachelorette and ultimately selected Holm. Although she hoped the third time would be the charm, Maynard and Holm broke up in October 2012.
