The news was confirmed by E! News exclusively and Emily is said to be “so excited,” according to a source close to her.

Maynard became famous in 2012 when she competed as a Bachelorette and eventually got engaged to Jef Holm, but the couple split before the wedding. She was previously engaged to “Bachelor” contestant Brad Womack.

Her first engagement was to race car driver Ricky Hendrick, who is the father of her 8-year-old daughter Ricki. Unfortunately, he died in a plane crash in 2004.

E! News reported that the Maynard, 27, and Johnson met at church and they started dating after her breakup from Jeff Holm in October 2012.

“We’re really excited!!” she 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!”

The reality star also shared that they’re anxious to tie the knot.

“We definitely are looking to get married sooner rather than later,” she said. “No point in waiting!”

Congratulations to the happy couple!
