UPDATE: Emily Maynard's rep confirms to E! News that the baby's name is Gibson Kyle Johnson. "Kyle" is Tyler's grandmother's last name while "Gibson" is Emily's middle name and also her uncle and grandmother and great grandfather's middle name. 


And baby makes five! 

Emily Maynard has given birth to a baby boy with husband Tyler Johnson, E! News has learned. The Bachelorette alum shared the heart-warming news on Instagram with an adorable photo of Maynard surrounded by their newest bundle of joy, her husband, their son Jennings Tyler and her 11-year-old daughter Ricki

"...oh heavenly day... God is good! {Ricki and I are officially outnumbered!}" Emily captioned the snapshot. Too cute!

This is Maynard's second child with Johnson, whom she married in June 2014. She had her daughter with Ricky Hendrick, her NASCAR fiancé who passed away in a plane crash in 2004 when he was only 24. Maynard gave birth to her second child,  in July 2015 and teased in her People pregnancy blog that she should've remembered that she would be "super fertile" after giving birth.

Right in the midst of her final days of pregnancy, the stunning blond joked to E! News,"I feel like I just had Jennings last week."

Having already experienced pregnancy with both a daughter and a son, the former reality star wanted to keep the sex of her third baby a surprise. "I just figured we already have one of each," she told us. "As an adult, there are few surprises that you truly get and I just thought it would be fun and it's been really exciting. I haven't gone to my doctor and begged him to tell me yet." 

Instead, the only thing Maynard requested was good health for her baby. "I feel like as long as it's healthy, we'll be happy and we'll take [whichever sex]."

Congratulations to the growing family!
