Emily has been engaged on television not once but twice, with neither one resulting in a walk down the aisle. But although she didn’t make it to the church on time with either Season 8 Bachelorette winner Jef Holm or Season 15 Bachelor winner Brad Womack, that doesn’t mean she isn’t walking down a church aisle with a man nowadays.
In an interview on July 10 about her recently launched Emily Maynard for Towne & Reese jewelry line, the reporter asked her about her love life. “I kind of just wanted to go into a hole for a little while after filming,” Emily says of her dating habits. But when reporter Michelle Boudin prompted her, saying “I’ve heard you’ve been cozy with someone from church for a little while,” Em didn’t deny it.
“I have, yeah, but I've known him for a long time. I met him far before I did the show,” the Season 8 Bachelorette explained of her love connection, blushing and smiling. So, who is the guy who may succeed where Brad and Jef failed her?
All we really know about him is that he’s a “local consultant to car dealerships,” and Emily has been hanging with him for “several months” in their shared hometown of Charlotte, North Carolina.
Looks like Emily has a ton going for her right now, and we wish her the best of luck with all of it!
