Emily Maynard Johnson

Emily Maynard Johnson experienced the tragic and sudden loss of her fiancé, NASCAR driver Ricky Hendrick, when she was eighteen. Days after his death, she discovered she was pregnant with her now ten-year-old daughter, Ricki. Navigating life as a single mom spawned an initial whirlwind of trying to balance finding her identity as an individual and being a parent. Known best for hoping to find love on camera, Emily appeared on season 15 of The Bachelor and season 8 of The Bachelorette. In 2014, Emily found the real deal and married Tyler Johnson. A fashionista at heart, she fulfilled one lifelong dream and created her own jewelry line. Emily lives in Charlotte with her husband, Tyler; daughter, Ricki; and son, Jennings.
