On tonight's The Bachelorette, Emily Maynard is heading to London, where love has been in the air ever since Prince William and Kate Middleton's royal wedding extravaganza. ETonline recently spoke to Sean Lowe, who hopes to prove he's Emily's Prince Charming on their one-on-one date.
"Before my London date, I knew we had connected on a couple of different levels. In London, it all comes together," he explained. "That's where I develop real feelings. That's where I pictured myself being with her in the future. That was the kickoff to our relationship."
Since London will forever hold a special place in their hearts, should they make it to the altar, "I could definitely see a wedding there or a honeymoon," he hypothesized. "It was so romantic and full of so much culture and history."
Sean has steered clear of the household drama and even got the stamp of approval from Emily's closest gal pals. "I think friends are a reflection of who you are," he stated. "I think it probably influenced her decision a little bit."
One major factor that is certainly influencing Emily's choices is which suitor would make a wonderful stepfather to her young daughter Ricki. "I definitely think the guy with the 'baggage' comment is not ready by any means," Sean said. "It's hard to say if someone is going to be ready or not. There may be some guys who appear ready, who when put in that situation could buckle under the pressure."
Personally for Sean, he hadn't put much thought into being a stepfather figure prior to signing on for the show, but is open to that prospect now that he's fallen for Emily. His "priorities in faith and family" align with Emily's values, giving them common ground to bond over.
