With The Bachelorette spoilers continuing to swirl ahead of Monday's premiere, former star Emily Maynard has a spoiler alert of her own.

The Bachelor and Bachelorette star, now married and expecting her second child, is having a boy, the beauty revealed on Instagram.

The pregnant Emily Maynard is already the mother of nine-year-old daughter Ricki, named after her fiance, the late race car driver Ricky Hendrick.

The 28-year-old jewelry designer got engaged twice more on ABC, to Brad Womack and then to Jef Holm, before both TV romances soon fizzled.

After her time on camera ended, she married Tyler Johnson, and the rest is history, with their first child together and her first son on the way.

What will the youngster be called?

“I told Tyler that [if] he gets to pick the last name for everybody, then I should pick the first name," Emily joked in an interview this week.

"If he wanted to pick the first name, then it can take my last name and be a Maynard! He did not like that. We’re still compromising."

That's all part of any relationship, but something unfamiliar to her in a good way this time will be the baby's father helping her out.

Hendrick died in a plane crash before Emily even knew she was pregnant with Ricki. Maynard was also so young, she was scrambling.

“The most different thing for me will be having Tyler here to help ... I raised Ricki by myself and it’s just been the two of us for so long."

"It was a really hard time in my life, and I was so young that I really don’t think I enjoyed it or soaked it in as much as I wish I could have.”

"I’m just really excited to be present," she adds.

Tyler is 100 percent on board with all this, too:

"He has seen me throw up in his gym bag ... pretty much everywhere. So if he still finds me attractive after all of that, I think we’re good!”
