If nothing else, Emily Maynard is persistent.
After dealing with two very public breakups, the former "Bachelor" and "Bachelorette" star is now engaged to boyfriend Tyler Johnson, she confirmed to Us Weekly.
Johnson, a 27-year-old management consultant, asked for Maynard's hand on January 4 with two diamond bands.
"He proposed to me at home and gave both (my daughter) Ricki and me rings. It was so sweet!" Maynard told the magazine. "Ricki loves him more than she likes me!"
Maynard previously tried to find lasting romance on "The Bachelor" and then "The Bachelorette," but both ventures ended in breakups. She was first engaged to "Bachelor" Brad Womack in 2011, but newfound celebrity got in the way. Then she met Jef Holms on "The Bachelorette," but they, too, soon called off their engagement.
After her relationship with Holm ended, Maynard began seeing Johnson, whom she'd met "several months" before her stint on "The Bachelorette."
With her latest engagement, Maynard plans to seal the deal soon. "We definitely are looking to get married sooner rather than later," she told Us. "No point in waiting!"
