As Emily Maynard's group of potential mates on The Bachelorette continues to shrink with every episode's rose ceremony, she is becoming increasingly closer to finding a husband and a father to her daughter, Ricki. Maynard tells The Insider that if all goes as she hopes, Ricki won't be the only child that her husband would be a father to.
On the topic of getting married after an unfruitful engagement to The Bachelor's Brad Womack, Maynard talked about the prospect of having children if she finds a fiancé on the show.
"I can't wait to get married one day and have a minivan full of kids. I can't wait for that day," the 26-year-old bachelorette said. Maynard also revealed her ideal number of children.
"Four—give or take a couple," she replied when prompted about her desired number of kids. "I'll take however many I'm blessed with, but I would love to have four," she added.
After an unhappy ending to her experience on The Bachelor, Maynard talked about why she decided to return to another reality TV dating series.
"I was hopeful," she said. "Going through everything on 'The Bachelor,' even if I wasn't the one that Brad picked in the end, I still had the time of my life on [the show] and learned so much about myself and got to see parts of the world that I would never have gotten to see otherwise."
Capitalizing on her opportunity seems to have paid off for Maynard, as she stated that she has no regrets about the show. "I'm so glad I did it," she said. "I had so much fun and it was just a great experience."
Although her Bachelorette story is still unfolding on TV to millions of viewers, Emily has already lived out her full experience on the show, which is pre-recorded, but wouldn't reveal whether or not she is currently engaged.
"You gotta watch and see," Maynard said with a twinkle in her eyes, as The Insider's Brooke Anderson put it.
See it for yourself when The Bachelorette continues tonight at 8 p.m. on ABC.
