Happy anniversary to the person who has changed my life in all the best ways.
Nothing makes me happier than knowing you are a part of God’s plan for my life and I couldn’t love you more @mtylerjohnson song: Marry Me by @zkale our first dance song A post shared by Emily Maynard Johnson (@emilygmaynard) on 10 When Emily began dating Tyler, she already had a daughter named Ricki from a previous relationship with Nascar driver Ricky Hendrick, who was killed in a plane crash in 2004.
It all went down during a private ceremony in June 2014 at Tyler’s family farm in Sharon, South Carolina.Well, apparently he was attracted to her because they got married only a few years later!5 After her time in the spotlight on reality TV and a few failed relationships, Emily reconnected with Tyler when she moved back home.12 One of the reasons Emily and Tyler’s relationship worked so well from the get-go was because he was such a great father figure to Ricki.
Now with their own children, Emily told People that she’s so grateful for the parent that he’s become. Sometimes I’m jealous that the boys, and Ricki, love him so much that I’m like, ‘I wanna be the favorite.’ Whenever he’s around, I don’t have to worry about anything. [I’m] extra grateful for him and all that he does because I didn’t have that before. Tyler chimed in and said he took being a parent to Ricki very seriously right from the get-go.
