Last night, millions of Americans watched, breathless, as the bachelorette Emily Maynard chose her fiancée in front of the cameras. The 26-year-old single mother has been followed by T.V. crews all over the world on the reality television show The Bachelorette for the past few months. Originally, the young woman was surrounded by 25 eligible bachelors. Every week, she would discard the men that weren’t right for her by withholding a rose at a ceremony. In the end, she had only two men left, and chose Utah-native Jef Holm as her husband-to-be. The couple appeared in public for the first time on a live broadcast Sunday, July 22nd after the final episode of the show aired.
This morning, the happy couple showed up at the set of Good Morning America to talk about their relationship and their happy ending after the long and dramatic T.V. show. Emily admitted to Good Morning America that her 7-year-old daughter Ricki knows that Jef is a large part of their lives. She didn’t want Ricki to feel pressured to keep a secret, so she was not previously aware that the couple was engaged. In the television show, Emily paused for about 10 seconds before answering to Jef’s proposal. The dramatic pause has been an object of conversation in her interviews, as more and more viewers ask why she took so long. According to Emily, she just wanted to soak in the moment. The couple will also be here in New York for the early part of the week, appearing on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” and “Live with Kelly!”
Admittedly, most Bachelorette or Bachelor couples from the show don’t weather the storm well. After watching the show, they often end up in a tense situation, and eventually break off their engagement. So far, Jef and Emily seem to have survived the span of time, and appear very much in love.
