31-year-old former Bachelorette Emily Maynard Johnson has now become a mother again with her husband Tyler Johnson. Emily, who is known for her appearance in the popular ABC series ( involving a handsome guy and a gaggle of girls) which has also featured celebrities like Kaitlyn Bristowe and Jordan Rodgers, is also the bestselling author of the book I Said Yes: My Story of Heartbreak, Redemption, and True Love.
Tyler and Emily are now parents of four children: Josephine Riddick Hendrick, Gibson Kyle Johnson, Jennings Tyler Johnson, and Gatlin Avery Johnson. Let's know more about the celebrity couple, their relationships, affairs, and children.
Emily and Tyler got married back in 2014. However, Emily's story is not all fairytale that one sees on her Instagram posts. Before having an affair with Tyler, Emily was in a relationship with Joseph Riddick "Ricky" Hendrick IV, popularly known as Ricky Hendrick, an American NASCAR driver and partial owner of the Hendrick Motorsports team, founded by his father Rick Hendrick.

In fact, Emily and Ricky were so close to each other that they had taken a step towards getting married. Emily started dating Ricky Hendrick from 1999 and they both got engaged in April 2004. Sadly, Ricky had an untimely death on October 24, 2004, in a plane crash, six months after they had been engaged with each other.
Have a look at the Instagram post, Emily shared her newborn baby.
So many emotions. 1) this woman is my everything. She is so extraordinary. I’m so blessed God gave her to me. 2) Ricki is still the queen. I? love you my sweet angel. 3) Johnson boys- LETS GO!! 4) I? feel very overwhelmed at God’s blessings. I? am a sinner saved by grace and even though I’m so broken God says “I? love you”. Thank you Jesus! 1 John 4:19. #4
Shortly after the incident, Emily found out that she was pregnant with his child. She subsequently gave birth to the little one and named her Josephine Riddick Hendrick, after her father.
