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.

Desiree Hartsock and Chris Siegfried sometimes try too hard, but in posting this cute pic from the day they got engaged in Antigua, they showed us.

The Bachelorette posted on Twitter, "This Seattle rain makes me want to go back to Antigua for the sun! And it's such a special place. #whereChrisProposed"

At first glance, it appears like yet another classic Desiree move seemingly concocted to remind us they're still together and to STEP OFF HATERS.

We know he proposed there, even though the spoilers had it wrong (speaking of which, check out The Bachelor spoilers for 2014). Move on, girl.

Upon second look, though, Des and Chris look so happy, content and normal in this photo. Relaxed, over the moon, in love. No trying too hard there.

Are Desiree Hartsock and Chris Siegfried upset at having to put off their dream wedding - at least if they want it on TV - because of Sean Lowe?

Chris Siegfried and Desiree Hartsock Engagement

The Bachelorette starlet, who accepted Chris' proposal just a few months after Sean sent her packing on The Bachelor, is on cloud nine these days.

At least she wants us to believe that, no matter many critics have been shutting down her relationship. Des is always one to stick up for herself.

The latest hiccup in their relationship comes not from Twitter gossip, however, but from planning their special day and whether to have it on ABC.

Hartsock and Siegfried initially showed interest in a summer wedding, however, it appears they will have to wait a bit longer before tying the knot.

She talks and Tweets a good game, but is Desiree Hartsock trying too hard to convince us there's no trouble in paradise with fiance Chris Siegfried?

Given the attention on Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici's upcoming wedding, and The Bachelor spoilers for 2014, all the pressure has been off Desiree.

All of which makes her continued defensiveness a bit puzzling.

Other than Des and Chris saying they'll have a TV wedding after Sean and Catherine's LIVE big day was announced, they've been off the radar lately.

Which makes it a little odd, in the eyes of some observers, that she's taken to Twitter and Instagram to silence the critics of her relationship again.

She shared a photo of a Steve Jobs quote on Instagram, as well as another Tweet about staying positive and being true to yourself amid negativity.

Inspiring? Sure. But also a potential sign that something's up.

Desiree Hartsock and Chris Siegfried from The Bachelorette have dealt with good amount criticisms about their relationship ever since their season ended.

They've withstood it all, and then some.

Through it all, Desiree is not letting it get her down. Tuesday, she quoted Steve Jobs: "Don't let the noise of other people's opinions drown out your inner voice."

Words to live by, Juan Pablo Galavis.

As Des' former suitor prepares to begin his JOURNEY on ABC (see The Bachelor spoilers for how that's going), Hartsock herself is happy as a clam.

Is Desiree Hartsock already bored with fiance Chris Siegfried? People are probably just reading into this too much, but here's how that rumor got started:

Desiree Hartsock, Chris Siegfried Shirtless

She asked for help on Twitter, writing, "Ready for a relaxing date night with @ChrisRSiegfried! What are your favorite date night things to do??? Need ideas."

Desiree Hartsock, mind you, has been engaged all of two months.

Clearly, this could be just a thing someone Tweets. We realize. And maybe a fan will come through with a truly awesome Seattle-area date idea.

Still, part of you has to wonder why she would ask that, given the image of the "honeymoon phase" that she tries to project pretty much at all times.

Desiree Hartsock, The Bachelorette star who just got engaged to Chris Siegfried on ABC, is starting a new wedding advice blog. Of course she is.

Her website will focus on wedding planning and wisdom. Des, of course, is a purported expert in all things weddings, due to her bridal stylist trade.

While we can - and will! - analyze the relationship of Desiree Hartsock and Chris Siegfried until we're blue in the face, the simple fact here remains:

She is not married and may well break off her engagement.

This is based on the show's track record and notwithstanding the fact that she obviously settled for her second choice, which some say doesn't bode well.

Would you read a wedding advice blog from somehow who hasn't taken part in a wedding as of yet? Or is that unrelated to the task of planning one?

You tell us, THGers. You. Tell. Us.

Chris Siegfried and Desiree Hartsock's book Diamonds and Hearts is officially out. Yes, The Bachelorette duo has released a collection of poems.

  • Diamonds and Hearts
  • Chris Siegfried and Desiree Hartsock Instagram

What, you may ask, is inside the 182-page memoir featuring 44 of the duo's original poems? You do not need The Bachelorette spoilers to answer that.

The mushy gushiness is out of control, even for a couple who met on a reality show and has made social media love-fests a daily ritual at this point.

Fans will point to yet another example of unrequited affection. Haters will say this proves their thirst for publicity and that they're trying too hard.

Whichever camp you're in, here's the lowdown on Diamonds and Hearts ...

Despite all the online chatter, Desiree Hartsock and Chris Siegfried are not throwing in the towel just yet ... if they were ever even close to doing so.

Des' Twitter feed is basically a live streaming look at a couple who certainly appears to be happy, in love and touching each other as much as possible.

A far cry from rumors that it's already over or that they're cracking under the pressure of going public after their unusual courtship on The Bachelorette.

Desiree posted photos of herself and Chris playing volleyball over the weekend, Chris shirtless and putting together furniture, Chris' poetry on the iPad, etc.

She also mentioned treating themselves to massages. Safe to say that if this duo is going through hard times, they are masking it awfully aggressively.

Desiree Hartsock and Chris Siegfried of The Bachelorette really want us to believe everything is fine between them. Blissful, in fact. But is that really the case?

From celebrity gossip reports that it's already over, to cryptic Tweets and Des' brother meeting up with her ex (more on that shortly), it's been a strange week.

  • Chris Siegfried and Desiree Hartsock Engagement
  • Zak Waddell and Nate Hartsock

Desiree Hartsock, for her part, Tweeted earlier this week, "It's not about looking into each others eyes but looking out in the same direction. - Ice T"

Ever since the show ended, some have felt that she's been defending her relationship with Chris Siegfried, and is simply trying too hard with stuff like this.

Reading too much into it? Probably. But this has been a trend.
