Former Bachelorette Emily Maynard shocked reality TV fans when she revealed she’s become engaged – again – just after New Year’s.
And now the 26-year-old beauty is finally giving the details about her new man and their new commitment.
“We were really just friends and we got to know each other” Maynard revealed about her fiancé Tyler Johnson on Tuesday’s Good Morning America, adding that the couple met at church. “I think that’s why our relationship is so good now, because we started out as friends.”
Unlike her two televised marriage proposals on The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, this one didn’t involved a far away exotic location, an evening gown and a giant rock of a diamond. The management consultant proposed to her at home. Emily wanted a stack of gold bands unlike the Neil Lane diamonds she received from Brad Womack and Jef Holm, but her 27-year-old sweetie surprised her with a stack of diamond bands instead noting “he did a better job” than what she originally wanted.
And it’s not going to be a long engagement. When asked when her wedding would be taking place Emily enthusiastically answered “soon”
As for current Bachelor Juan Pablo Galvais, he has a fan in Emily. “I think that he’s just the cutest thing,” she said. “I’ve been rooting for him since Desiree’s season so I just love to watch him and I think he has a really good group of girls.”
