Bachelorette Emily Maynard Engaged: 'She's Ecstatic,' Says Pal
By Amber Goodhand - RadarOnline.com News Editor
Bachelorette viewers won't find out whether or not Emily Maynard accepted a proposal until the finale in July, but pals close to the North Carolina native confirm she is engaged.
In fact, sources reveal one of her dashing suitors slipped a $90,000 4-carat Neil Lane sparkler on her finger!
"Emily is still happy and engaged. She is ecstatic. She's over the moon and loves her ring," a pal told Life & Style, noting that Emily's daughter is pleased with her mom's new beau as well.
"Ricki is really happy, too."
"It wouldn't matter how much I was into a guy or crazy about him — if he weren't at a point in his life where he wanted to settle down and step into the role of being a stepdad and husband and all of that, I would have to say no thank you," Emily, 26, told the magazine.
The engagement reportedly took place on May 11, and just weeks later an eyewitness said she ran into the winning bachelor at the airport.
"He seemed like a very cool guy, very laid-back," Courtney Wade said, careful not to reveal his identity.
"He wasn't flirting with us at all but was low-key and funny."
To find out which man gives Emily the fairy-tale ending she's been dreaming of, tune in to the season finale of ABC's The Bachelorette on July 16.
