Warning: This story contains a major spoiler!
Emily Maynard will be getting engaged in the season finale of The Bachelorette and RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned that the blonde cutie is hoping to do a spin-off show that would feature the bride planning for the big day!
“Emily is head over heels in love after a beautiful proposal in Curacao,” a source close to the 26-year-old single mother revealed.
So who is the lucky guy who won Emily’s heart?
“Jef Holm got down on one knee and asked Emily to marry him and she said yes!” the source dished.
“They are extremely happy together and have managed to see each other several times since filming ended several months ago.”
According to the source, Emily is hoping to continue her television career just like Trista and Ryan Sutter did, starting with her upcoming nuptials.
“Emily wants to do a spin-off show which would include the planning of the wedding. She loves to be in front of the camera and there are multiple offers on the table for her to do other television shows.”
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Emily is the first single mom in the show’s eight-season history, and her 6-year-old daughter Ricki has been a featured topic on the show. Emily’s fiance and baby daddy, NASCAR driver Ricky Hendrick died in a 2004 plane crash while she was pregnant.
She hasn’t inked the deal for the spin-off show because she’s still waiting for the world to learn that she’s engaged.
“Emily can’t formally have discussions yet because the finale hasn’t aired,” the source said. “But she’s really excited to get the date, location and all of the details set so that she can marry Jef and having it air on TV fits in perfectly with her plans.”
The season finale of The Bachelorette airs Sunday, July 22 on ABC.
