Emily Maynard, the current star of ABC's hit series The Bachelorette, is officially engaged. Sources say the $90,000 ring – designed by legendary Hollywood jewelry guru Neil Lane – was given to Maynard just after midnight during filming on May 11th. It's a sunny spell of good news in an otherwise bumpy season for the long-running reality series.
Maynard, 26, is a single mother of one who joined this season of The Bachelorette amid a flurry of plastic surgery accusations. Shortly afterward, it was revealed that one of Maynard's suitor front-runners had had a previous relationship with a show producer. This sort of drama and speculation is par for the course in reality TV, however, and Maynard's shrugging it all off.
"Emily is still happy and engaged. She is ecstatic," a source told Life & Style Magazine. "She's over the moon and loves her ring."
