Seven months after the birth of her second child, Emily Maynard Johnson is pregnant again!  The former Bachelorette star made the announcement on her website, writing “I’m pregnant. Again. And before you even say anything, yes, I realize I just had Jennings like, 2 seconds ago. I guess I should’ve read that part in the baby handbook that says you’re super fertile after giving birth, huh?”

While admittedly surprised by the pregnancy, the former reality star and author of the new book “I Said Yes” and her family are thrilled with the news. The new baby will join Emily’s daughter Ricki, 10, (Ricki’s father was the last NASCAR driver Ricky Hendrick who died in a 2004 plane crash) and her son with her husband, Jennings Tyler, 7 months.

Emily wrote, “I’m really looking forward to Jennings having a built-in best friend, whether it’s a boy or a girl. Rick is really hoping it’s a girl so she can teach her how to be a tomboy and play soccer!”

Maynard and Johnson met at church and married in June of 2014.
