Former “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette” star Emily Maynard Johnson is pregnant with her third child, only seven months after giving birth to son Jennings with husband Tyler Johnson. Maynard Johnson said that she sees the new pregnancy as a gift from God.
Maynard Johnson is also mother to 10-year-old daughter Ricki with late fiancé Ricky Hendrick.
In a blog post for People, Maynard Johnson wrote, "I said about two weeks after Jennings was born that I couldn't wait to have another. I just had no clue it would happen so quickly! Some of my closest friends have had a really hard time getting pregnant and my heart breaks for them, so I'm just so grateful for this blessing God has given our family."
The former reality star said, “...for me, going through [tough times], I couldn’t see God’s hand in life. But now looking back, I see all these times where God gave me these little presents to open. And this is another one of His gifts.”
"I'm living proof that God has an incredible plan for each of us, we just have to be patient enough to wait for Him and His timing!" she wrote.
