Emily Maynard Gives Birth to Baby Boy!

by at .

Former star of The Bachelorette Emily Maynard welcomed a healthy baby boy with her husband Tyler Johnson, she announced on Instagram.

"God is good," she wrote alongside the sweet pic of her newborn nestled up next her to in the hospital bed. "My heart can't even handle it."

This is her second child, and her first with her husband, whom she wed after two failed engagements on The Bachelor and Bachelorette.

She got engaged to Brad Womack after winning The Bachelor star's final rose, then gave her final rose as Bachelorette to Jef Holm.

Neither took. But it all led her to a wonderful place right now.

Maynard had daughter Ricki, 10, with her late fiance Ricky Hendrick, who died in a 2004 plane crash before Emily knew she was expecting.

"The most different thing for me will be having Tyler here to help," Emily said recently when preparing to welcome her second child.

"I raised Ricki by myself," she added, "and it’s just been the two of us for so long. I’m just really excited to be present."

"When Ricki was born, it was a really hard time in my life. I was so young that I really don’t think I enjoyed it or soaked it in as much."

It's truly amazing to think what a difference there will be and how much she's been through in the decade between her children.

While Maynard has yet to reveal her son's name, she joked that both mom and dad would have to meet halfway in that arena.

"I told Tyler that [if] he gets to pick the last name for everybody, then I should pick the first name," the 28-year-old Maynard joked.

"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 compromising.”

After Johnson popped the question, he and the blonde beauty tied the knot at his parents' farm in South Carolina last year.

Soon enough, they announced she was expecting.

Warm congratulations to Emily, Tyler and Ricki, and to the rest of the celebrities who have welcomed babies so far in 2015!
