Okay, guys. We’re so ridiculously happy right now, we’re really not quite sure how to handle it.
Not only did Jef Holm propose to Emily Maynard on The Bachelorette Season 8 finale, but minutes later on “After The Final Rose,” Jef revealed to America that he and Emily have met up almost every single weekend since the show finished taping.
Of course, these romantic weekend rendezvous had to be kept top secret up until now. But since the news of their engagement has finally been made public, Team Jem is now free to talk about their romantic post-show meetups as much as they would like.
Perhaps our favorite part of Jef’s big reveal is the fact that not all the weekend getaways were just about he and Em. Nope, Emily’s 7-year-old daughter, Ricki, joined them on multiple occasions!
In fact, do you remember that sweet little picture Emily tweeted earlier this month of she and Ricki going fishing? It turns out that Jef himself was totally there too — standing off camera just a few feet away!
Way to keep the secret so tightly under wraps, you guys. Because if we were engaged to Jef Holm, lord knows it would take every fiber in our being not to shout it from the rooftops for everyone on earth to hear.
Huge congrats to the happy couple!
