Emily Maynard: Fourth Engagement ‘Is My Last. I Really Mean It.’

The Bachelorette star Emily Maynard says the fourth time’s the charm. At least when it comes to her love life.

The reality star has been engaged four times, but she told People her current engagement to automotive management consultant Tyler Johnson is her last.

I really mean it. I’m actually making it to the marriage part this time!”

Maynard and Johnson, both 28, met as Maynard began filming season eight of The Bachelorette.

“I did a jewelry-making class at a middle school that was adopted by my church and he’s an elder at the church,” Maynard explains. “He would help me carry out the boxes. I thought, ‘He’s the nicest person.’ ”
