Things looked bleak on the After The Final Rose special, but Brad Womack and Emily Maynard swore they were still together and in this for the long haul.

The doubters may be proven wrong after all.

According to Life & Style, Emily Maynard has decided to make the move from North Carolina to Texas with her 5-year-old daughter, Ricki, to be with Brad!

Guess that movie date really won Ricki over ...

"She feels like the best thing to do is to give this a real shot and put her heart into it by moving to Austin for the summer," an insider close to Emily said.

"She's going to get her own condo there. She's not moving in with him."

As for why Brad didn't move to Charlotte? It was his non-negotiable:

"Love is a compromise, but that's the only thing I was adamant about. I have some strong roots there. I don't want to relocate. I have a career in Austin."

What do you think? Will he and Emily make it?

If this isn't a recipe for a happy family, we don't know what is.

It looks like Brad Womack has finally won over Ricki, his fiancee Emily Maynard's five-year-old daughter, with probably the best possible combination:

Justin Bieber and cotton candy.

In this Us Weekly photo, The Bachelor couple and Ricki stepped out for a visit to the movie theater in Maynard's hometown of Charlotte, N.C. It was cute.

"He was smiling at her, and she looked really happy," an observer says of the trio, who were emerging from a matinee of Justin Bieber: Never Say Never.

Despite some major setbacks - long distance, a cancelld March wedding, a short-lived split, some poking of the bear - it looks like they're gonna make it.

Womack said it was "perfection" bonding with "my girls" during the visit over movies, Sunday church services, an IHOP run and shopping at Nordstrom.

All together now ... AWWWW! Things were looking down for awhile, but never say never! What do you think? Will Brad Womack and Emily Maynard last?

Are The Bachelor’s Brad Womack and Emily Maynard over already?

If OK! Magazine says so, it must be true, right? Mmmyeah not so much. This fine publication has had Jen Aniston pregnant or adopting about 18 times.

You have to take with a boulder of salt their report that Emily's engagement ring, conspicuously still on last week, is now NO LONGER on. Scandal!

The magazine goes on to say that the "romantic version of Brad and Emily" is all for the cameras, and they're "pretending for the sake of The Bachelor brand."

What nonsense. That brand has less credibility than this magazine. Sure, it's a fun show and we love it too, but let's be real. One marriage. 15 seasons.

In real life, a staffer from the show, who may or may not actually exist, has revealed exclusively to OK! that Emily has broken up with Brad - for GOOD!

“There have been so many breakups and make ups - mostly over the phone or Skype,” a source said. “Finally, Emily told him she can’t do this anymore."

Well, consider us convinced ... or not at all. Don't get us wrong, it wouldn't shock us if they broke up, we're just not buying this account for one second.

Brad and Emily: Will it last?

Rumors of their breakup began swirling about 10 minutes after The Bachelor finale last Monday, but at least for now, all seems well for the happy couple.

Brad Womack's chosen bride-to-be Emily Maynard was seen at the Charlotte airport on Thursday, still wearing her huge engagement ring in this photo.

Emily Maynard also Tweeted that she had just returned from a trip to visit Brad in Austin, and by all accounts it went well, even if they're taking it slow.

Brad Womack Proposes to Emily Maynard

The couple seemed destined for each other all season, making some of the After the Final Rose revelations all the more surprising to the show's viewers.

They already briefly broke up once since the finale was taped, he wanted to marry her this month but she declined, and she won't move to Austin - yet.

Nevertheless, she seems committed to Brad Womack and maybe, just maybe, they'll be able to work this thing out and get married when it feels right.

What do you think? Will Brad and Emily last?

Despite the difficulties they described in Monday's After the Final Rose special, The Bachelor's Brad Womack and Emily Maynard are still together.

Moreover, both of them are confident that's never gonna change.

"I'm so happily engaged. I've never been happier, I promise you that," Womack tells People, despite significant bumps in the road with his fiancee.

Chief among the couple's problems? Watching The Bachelor this winter.

As she described after the finale, Emily Maynard had serious issues watching her man woo other women on dates as the season progressed.

It wore on Brad, too. "There have been numerous times where either she or I have said, 'To hell with it. It's just too difficult,'" Womack said.

So much so that fans - and the couple themselves - wondered if it will last. So what kept them together - despite a brief split? Love, of course.

"The hardest part is behind us," Emily says. "I feel pretty confident if we can make it through [the past three months], we'll make it through."

What do you think? Will Brad and Emily last?

If nothing else, The Bachelor season finale was certainly a memorable one. As is often the case, the After the Final Rose special provided many of the fireworks.

Just minutes after Brad Womack's swoon-worthy proposal to Emily Maynard, viewers learned about his terrible temper - and that they briefly parted ways.

They're back together now, but Brad "couldn't speak for Emily" when Chris asked if they're still engaged. Never a good sign. She's also NOT moving to Texas.

Here's the awkward ATFR interview that aired post-finale:

It's all come down to one final rose tonight, and for the two women remaining, a final date to make their case in the quest to become Mrs. Brad Womack.

How will the saga end? Which amazing woman - Emily Maynard and Chantal O'Brien - will receive a Neil Lane ring and who will depart empty-handed?

THG breaks down The Bachelor season finale in a LIVE +/- recap!

Brad Womack Waits

Come on, ABC. Ditch the "most controversial season in Bachelor history" bit. We get it. You recycled Brad. Other than that? Pretty normal season! Minus 4.

Five minutes in and Brad's crying. Sorry ... bawling. Yikes. Minus 3.

Wait ... Brad is a changed man? Emily and Chantal couldn't be more different? Wild. Missed that the first four times. Also, what is Brad wearing?! Minus 5.

Chantal is bringing it tonight. She's holding nothing back. Plus 9. Saying she'll get married to Brad on the spot? Not a bluff. Talk about laying it on the line.

Oh, passing the mom test. This is going down to the wire! Plus 6.

Is your top on backwards, though, Chantal? Just askin'. Minus 2.

Brad Womack's final rose is set to be doled out on The Bachelor season finale Monday. Reigning Bachelorette Ali Fedotowsky knows who she'd give it to.

"I think both girls are great... but in the last two episodes, his connection with Emily [Maynard] has been undeniable," Fedotowsky told Us Weekly.

What makes Brad and Emily such a great fit?

Secrets of The Bachelor Finale

HE'S THE ONE: Roberto was for Ali. Will Brad be for Emily?

"It's been the little things that he's done - like he had that little picnic for her at the beginning outside. He is just so smitten with her," Ali said of "Brad's" courtship.

THG NOTE: Seriously, Al, you were on the show. You can at least give props to host-pimp Chris Harrison, who we all know sets up dates for his employees.

Anyway, Ali says when Brad is with Emily Maynard, the truest sign of love is that "he wants to do anything to sort of reassure her - like telling her he loved her."

"They are both southern and polite, and I just think they'd make a really cute little couple. All along I thought it was going to be those two," she admits.

What do you think? Who should Brad choose on the Bachelor finale?

NOTE: This article really doesn't tell you a whole lot.

The new Us Weekly may well have exclusive details and photos of Brad Womack's final dates in South Africa on The Bachelor, but the juicy details are lacking.

If you want to know if he picks Emily Maynard or Chantal O'Brien, well, The Bachelor spoilers here can probably enlighten you. That's as much as we'll say.

Who do you think Brad ends up proposing to?

Secrets of The Bachelor Finale

Brad's last date with single mom Emily involves a wilderness picnic in Cape Point starting with a helicopter ride. "They ended it with a kiss," an insider says.

With Chantal, she and Brad opted for something more adventurous. We're talking about a whale and shark watch aboard a boat by Danger Point peninsula.

"They held hands," the source observed, scandalously.

When the time came for the native Texan to give out his final rose and propose - and give one of the ladies some bad news - Womack was very nervous.

Still, as evidenced by the season finale preview airing this week, it was a call he had to make. Brad "knew he made the right decision," the insider adds.

THG Asks: What do you think that right decision should be?!

If Emily ever loves me the way she loved her ex-fiance, I'd feel like the luckiest guy on earth. I always said I wanted to find a truly sweet woman to spend my life with. Emily is that woman. That smile, that beauty. I'm so happy every time I'm around her. She makes me want to be a better man. I want Emily to be my wife.

Not exactly your standard open-ended, vague tease, is it?

While The Bachelor spoilers have said one thing, then another as far as who wins Brad Womack's heart Monday night, perhaps the most telling indicator is the above quote, straight from the star himself in the season finale preview below ...

Both Chantal O'Brien and Emily Maynard are great catches, but only one will walk away with the final rose. No, he's not ditching both like he did last time around.

We ask: Who do you think should win The Bachelor?
