Former Bachelorette star Emily Maynard kissed many, many frogs in Bachelor Nation — from winning Brad Womack’s final rose in 2011 to becoming Bachelorette and picking Jef Holm on her own season — but it was after cameras stopped rolling that she found her prince charming. The blonde beauty married hunky husband Tyler Johnson in 2014, and they still couldn’t be happier together. Keep reading for more details about Tyler and the life he’s built with Emily.

Who is Emily Maynard’s husband?

The pair actually met before she ever did reality TV, at Forest Hills church in Charlotte, North Carolina, where Tyler is an “elder.” Unfortunately, Emily thought she’d been “friend-zoned” by him! “I used to teach jewelry making class at a middle school that my church adopted and Tyler was one of the coordinators of the program,” she once explained on her blog. “Well, every Thursday I could count on him to come help me carry all of my beads out to my car at the end of class. The only problem was he was so good looking that I could barely make eye contact with him, much less have a normal conversation…for some reason I was so intimidated by him and the fact that he showed me no interest at all just made it that much worse.” Thankfully their friendship later took a romantic turn and they got married in 2014.

Sadly, Hendrick died in a plane accident, but Tyler has been an amazing stepdad to Ricki. He is absolutely nothing short of the best thing that’s ever happened in my life,” Emily gushed on Instagram in 2018. “Tyler, to try to put into words how special you are would be a disservice to you, but I hope you never doubt how much joy and love you bring into all of our lives. I pray every day our kids will have your heart.”
