Congrats to Emily Maynard and husband Tyler Johnson!

The former The Bachelor and The Bachelorette star recently gave birth to their first child together, a baby boy. Maynard, 29, posted on her Instagram page on Thursday a beautiful photos of herself laying down with her newborn son. His name has not been revealed and Maynard did not specify when he was born.

"God is good," she said. "My heart can't even handle it."

The couple's child joins big sister Ricki, 10. Maynard was pregnant with her daughter when her fiancé, NASCAR driver Ricky Hendrick, died in a plane crash at age 24 in 2004. Maynard was the first single mother to appear as the star of The Bachelorette, back in season 8 in 2012.

Maynard and Johnson met at church and got engaged in 2014, just after the New Year's holiday. She announced her pregnancy this past January and revealed in an on-air interview with Charlotte, North Carolina-based TV station WCCB in May that she and her husband were expecting a baby boy.

"We're excited. I told Tyler that if he gets to pick the last name for everybody, then I should get to pick the first name and if he wants to pick the first name, then he can take my last name and be a Maynard. He did not like that," she said, laughing. "So, we're still compromising."

She also told the outlet that she hopes to have "a lot" of children.
