The Bachelorette star accepted Jef’s proposal in Curacao months ago and they have been keeping their relationship secret but now they can finally show off their love for the world to see.
Emily was smiling broadly in New York City as she held tightly onto Jef’s hand, showing off her blingy 3.5-carat Neil Lane sparkler.
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Emily has big plans to move to Hollywood to continue her career on television, possibly with another ABC reality show.
“Emily wants to live where all the action is and that means Hollywood,” a source said about the 26-year-old single mother.
“Emily wants to do a spin-off show about the wedding planning and build a brand. She would love to have her own talk show one day and she has instructed her manager to look into all potential offers and make it happen. Emily is one determined young lady, is very bright and she always gets what she wants.”
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.
“Emily is 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 source said.
