Emily Maynard Announces Newborn Son's Name -- See the Adorable Video!
By Meredith B. Kile
Emily Maynard has announced her newborn baby boy’s name, and it has special family significance to her and husband Tyler Johnson.
The Bachelorette star told ET that her son’s name is Gibson Kyle Johnson. Kyle is the last name of Johnson’s grandmother, while Gibson is Maynard’s middle name, which she shares with her uncle, grandmother and great-grandfather.
The adorable new bundle of joy joins the couple's 1-year-old son, Jennings, and Maynard's 11-year-old daughter, Ricki -- whose father is the late NASCAR driver Ricky Hendrick. On Monday, the former reality star shared a sweet video of Jennings bonding with his baby brother.
“Best friends already,” Maynard captioned the clip of her older son and his dad giving kisses to baby Gibson.
Maynard announced that she was expecting back in March, in a post on her website. The fashion blogger and reality star admitted she was surprised by the news, considering she just gave birth to her first son in July 2015.
"When this baby gets here, Jennings will be about 15 months old and even though I'm sure he'll have no clue what's going on, I feel a little guilty just because he didn't get to be the baby for very long!" Maynard wrote.
"With all that said, I truly couldn't be more excited," she added. "And I said about two weeks after Jennings was born that I couldn't wait to have another -- I just had no clue it would happen so quickly!"
