After much speculation, ‘The Bachelorette‘ Emily Maynard has officially confirmed her spilt from fiancé Jef Holm.
Maynard opened up about ending her engagement in an exclusive statement, ”I am sorry to tell you that Jef and I have, indeed, parted ways,” Emily tells People. “It was a very difficult and heartbreaking decision.
“As you know, at first I wasn’t sure that I should even be The Bachelorette, but I am a hopeless romantic and I do believe in the show. I have no regrets because I did find love and shared an incredible journey with a really special person – and you know what, we tried our best because the love between us was so real.
“I have nothing but respect and love for Jef and his family, but ultimately we are just at different points in our lives.
“I’ve learned so much and I’m grateful for all of the support I’ve received. I’m excited and hopeful for the next chapter in my life with my daughter, Ricki. I do hope that you will respect our privacy and allow us the time we need to heal.”

Before Emily Maynard rose to fame on ‘The Bachelor,’ the 26-year-old southern beauty decided she needed some cosmetic help before her small screen debut.
Maynard who is currently the new ‘Bachelorette‘ on the hit ABC show and was previously engaged to Brad Womack reportedly went under the knife before she hit it big and now has breast implants, veneers and most likely a nose job, Us Weekly reports.
A source is telling the media outlet that Emily went under the knife after developing Bell’s palsy as a teen, a nerve disorder left “the right side of her face paralyzed for a few months,” the source said. “She was tormented in school.”
A friend Womack‘s who met Maynard when the couple were still engaged says that her appearance is quite different, ”Her expressions seem kind of frozen,” says the pal. “It looks like Botox.”
