So far, so very good for Emily Maynard and Jef Holm.

The single mother chose the entrepreneur on last night's Bachelorette finale and, naturally, many viewers have already started counting down to their split.

But Emily and Jef appeared together on Good Morning America today and didn't look or sound like a couple on the verge of a split.

Holm, in fact, said he'll soon be moving to Charlotte to spend more time with his fiancee and her daughter, Ricki, although he'll be getting a "separate place" in the city.

"We're going to combine our lives and I'm going to hang out with Ricki all the time and become a car pool dad," Jef said. "We're just going to live our lives together and get accustomed with each other, plan a wedding, and when we get married, move in together."

Well... he didn't refer to seven-year old Ricki as "baggage." Jef Holm has that going for him.

But the newly minted Bachelorette champion and fiance of Emily Maynard does have one going against him: history.

Couples that get together on this reality show franchise rarely make it to the altar, despite the platitudes of love they deliver back and forth on all finales and subsequent After the Rose ceremonies.

But could Jef and Emily be the exception? The former turned out to be one of the most popular contestants in show history - and Maynard does have a daughter. She isn't exactly messing around here with an eye only on fame and publicity.

Chime in now and predict the future of the brand new couple: Will Jef Holm and Emily Maynard make it?

Find out NOW in our THG LIVE Recap!

If you don't want to wait, you can always check out The Bachelorette Spoilers, but we think you'll want to stick around for this.

Emily and her Men

Chris Harrison reminds us that this is a super special finale with a super special After the Rose special! Yay for three hours of Emily Maynard! Minus 8

Curacao. It must suck to be there, right? And to be in love with two guys while there? That's tough. Oooh look, Ricki sighting! Plus 5.

Jef's meeting the family, including the future sister-in-law, but not Ricki. And he brought flowers for her mom. What a sweetheart. Plus 10.

Mom's a little leery because Brad really stole HER heart. She's going to grill Jef about Ricky and how he feels about being a dad. Jef's ready to be a dad and wants to marry Emily. I'm totally Team Jef right now. Plus 20.

Oooh, now big brother's going to grill Jef. Except they end up talking about Rick, her late fiance' and father of her child. Which is a little odd. But big brother's impressed, so score one for Jef with one F. Plus 8.

A week prior to The Bachelorette finale, Emily Maynard came face-to-face with her potential suitors on last night's Men Tell All special.

What was the most challenging aspect of the reunion for this beautiful single mother? Seeing Sean Lowe again, Emily admitted in a new blog entry.

"I didn't feel like we had much closure, and it was really important to me that he knew that everything I felt was 100 percent real for me," Maynard writes, adding that she's thrilled Sean is now in a "great place."

Who will Emily actually end up with? Visit our section of Bachelorette spoilers for a few theories.

Who got slammed the hardest on this week's special? That's easy: Kalon.

"He made it pretty clear he wasn't sorry, so I wasn't going to sit there and let him think he was tricking me into thinking he was a nice guy," says Maynard. "People like Kalon make me sad and I'm just glad I never have to waste another second thinking about him!"

NOTE: The Bachelorette finale will actually air on Sunday night, so set your DVR accordingly and answer now: Who should Emily pick?

Tonight the men spill the secrets of this season of The Bachelorette and single mom, Emily Maynard. They'll talk douchebaggery and heartbreak. There might even be man tears.

But will they spill the biggest secret of all? That is, will they spoil which man won Emily's heart?

Well, no. Probably not.

Oh well. The big teases.

Chris Harrison, a.k.a. Mr. Hostman, (get it? Mr. Hostman? Mr. Postman? Bring me a dream...okay, I'll stop.) reminds us that the finale will be Sunday and Arie and Jef will be absent from tonight's tell-all. But we'll get plenty of Kalon and Ryan. Joy.

Before we meet the men, Chris and Emily dish on the season. They start out rehashing Ryan's fantastic first date and following it up with every awful thing he said all season. I had such high hopes for him in the beginning. And then his ego got bigger than his heart. Minus 7.

And then we get a recap of Kalon and Emily's "West Virginia Hood Rat" send-off. He was absolutely horrifying. Minus 4 for not getting rid of him sooner.

Oh, Doug. Poor Doug. And that awful, awful excuse for a kiss. What, is he 12? Minus 2.

As the Emily Maynard rumor mill turns …

According to a tabloid report, The Bachelorette star herself was shot down on the finale by one of her two remaining hopefuls, Arie Luyendyk, Jr. and Jef Holm.

If that's true, which we doubt, it would make her choice a lot easier!

The Bachelorette Emily Picture

In Touch "reveals" (i.e. fabricates) today that the man who proposes to Emily Maynard on the season finale Sunday, July 22, was not her first choice.

“He won by default,” an insider spills. Supposedly.

The man who captured Emily’s heart rejected her at the penultimate hour, according to the insider, in an emotional scene filmed for The Bachelorette season finale.

Emily was enjoying a date with one of her final two candidates - read The Bachelorette spoilers to see who wins - when he got a sudden case of cold feet.

“He said, ‘I don’t think we know each other nearly enough to even be entertaining this; I don’t think we should get engaged,’” says the insider.

As the season's dramatic climax approaches rapidly, The Bachelorette star Emily Maynard is the topic of more rumors than we can even keep track of.

One day, she's "madly in love" with host Chris Harrison ... then "dissing" him and won't give him her phone number! And she may be back with Brad.

Oh, and she's the "biggest diva of all time" according to so-called insiders. Can we believe any of this? Or even The Bachelorette spoilers re: the finale?

According to sources close to The Bachelorette, Emily and Chris are "good friends" and reports of any romantic entanglement are "100 percent false."

In Monday's "Men Tell All" special, Chris and Emily will reportedly joke around about all the ridiculous celebrity gossip reports about their relationship.

As for reports of her being a diva during production, those have been more widespread throughout the year, and at least somewhat more believable.

Still, a source says, "Emily is very sweet and stories of her being a diva are ridiculous! Our crew loved her more than anybody we've had, seriously."

Insiders insist Emily was nothing but sweetness and sugar all season, despite reports in tabloids labeling her the ABC show's "biggest diva of all time."

So basically, don't believe the hype ... or if you do, take it with a boulder of salt. As for the finale, who should she pick, Arie Luyendyk or Jef Holm?

Sean Lowe says he was absolutely crushed by his elimination on The Bachelorette Monday night, and was totally planning to propose to Emily Maynard.

In one of the most heartbreaking eliminations in show history, Emily gave Jef Holm and Arie Luyendyk Jr. roses and said goodbye to a devastated Sean.

"I'm not sure what to say," a teary Sean told her. "I feel kind of stupid. Only because I knew with certainty that I was ready to spend forever with you."

Sean Lowe on The Bachelorette

"I just didn't see this coming... obviously. I think you should know it's going to hurt me," he added as Emily Maynard broke down in tears, once again. 

"I'm going to miss you more than you know. I care about you, ultimately, and if this is the best for you, than you have to do what's best for you." 

The decision was clearly tough on her as well.

"I want you to know, I wanted it to be you, so bad. So, so bad ... I'm really going to miss you and I have loved every minute I've had with you."

Now that the shock of his elimination is over and he's spent some time away from the cameras, Sean Lowe admits he wouldn't "change a thing." 

"Wow! Thanks so much to everyone who sent love my way," the 28-year-old Tweeted. "Emily is such an amazing girl and I wouldn't change a thing."

"I am so very blessed." 

The question is ... did Emily make the right call letting him go?

 

The other question is ... with Sean out of the picture for better or worse, who will win the final rose (see Bachelorette spoilers if you dare) July 22?
