Bachelorette Alum Emily Maynard Reveals Bell’s Palsy Diagnosis
“My sweet Nola Belle, you are absolute magic and I can’t wait to see God uncover your personality each day,” she closed. “I’m so happy He picked me to be your mommy!”
Emily and Tyler share three kids: Gatlin Avery, 2, Gibson Kyle, 4 and Jennings Tyler, 5. The Bachelorette alum is also the proud mom to her 15-year-old daughter, Josephine Riddick Hendrick, who she shared with late racecar driver Ricky Hendrick.
In a candid post on New Year’s Day, Emily explained why she and her husband chose to keep her fifth pregnancy private. “Honestly, no real answer or plan,” she admitted. “Lots going on in the world at the time and social media/news gave me anxiety, so I just never put it on Instagram.”
She added, “After a while, we decided it would be fun to just surprise everyone with a new baby!”
All in all, Emily said last year was unlike any other and summed it up best, writing, “Survived the ups and downs of 2020 with my favorite people.”
