Emily Maynard lost her fiance, professional race car driver Ricky Hendrick, in a plane crash on October 24, 2004. Rick and Emily had been dating for four years (since they were 15 years old), and were engaged for about six months when Ricky passed away. The Friday after Ricky's death, Emily learned she was pregnant with their now-5-year-old daughter Ricki. Emily won Brad Womack's affections on The Bachelor Season 15, but because of distance and a whole host of other issues, the pair did not last. Emily was engaged to Utah entrepreneur Jef Holm. Emily fell hard for Jef as the Bachelorette, accepting his proposal during the Season 8 finale in Curacao. Sadly, Emily and Jef spilt in October 2012.
