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.

Jef Holm and Emily Maynard: Bachelorette Finale

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.”

No wedding plans are in the works, as Emily said she has to actually fill Ricki in on the status of her soon-to-be stepfather.

“Right now she knows that Jef is a huge part of my life,” Maynard said. “I didn’t want to burden her with too much because it was still a secret, and God knows she’s the worst secret keeper ever! Now that we can be out in public, she’s going to know.”

Why might this romance succeed where so, so, so many others produced by the show have failed?

“Because we really have become immediate best friends,” Emily said. “I feel so comfortable around him.”

Do you think these two will last?
