Emily Maynard and Tyler Johnson: Dating! Serious!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Emily Maynard and Tyler Johnson are dating, and you could say things are getting pretty serious between The Bachelorette and her new boyfriend.

After two public broken engagements, Emily and Tyler, who met at church, are "very serious," according to a source close to the single mother:

"He's met her daughter, Ricki, and they're already like a little family unit... They take each other to weddings and will be spending the holidays together."

As for whether she'll be headed to the altar with Tyler following her two broken reality TV engagements to Brad Womack and Jef Holm, respectively?

Not quite yet.

Emily Maynard's personal life has been plagued with drama for years now, so she wants to keep the new romance private, and slow it down, for some time.

"She's also had two public, broken engagements so she's definitely going to hold off on getting engaged again until they are very, very sure," the source explains.

Fair enough.

Basically, she only wants to get engaged one more time and only one more time, so she's cautious even if things are going great with him right now.

Emily was also engaged to Ricky Hendrick, the race car driver who was killed in a crash before she even knew she was pregnant with their daughter.

Little Ricki has been prominently featured on her two seasons on TV, so that probably factors into her wanting to keep things quiet going forward.

Maynard, who currently resides with her daughter in Charlotte, N.C., most recently launched a new jewelry collection and is enjoying time out of the spotlight.

After her unsuccessful turns as The Bachelor contestant and The Bachelorette star, one can see why she might want to go the low-key route from now on.
