Has Emily Maynard finally found love again?

The reality TV star and jewelry designer has been on a rocky romance road over the last few years.

She was engaged to the late NASCAR driver Ricky Hendrick, but he died in a 2004 plane crash. Their daughter, Ricki, was born several months later.

Maynard later accepted a proposal from Bachelor Brad Womack. That didn't work out. 

She then became enaged to Jef Holm, the guy she picked on Season 8 of The Bachelorette. They split in October 2012.

Now, Us Weekly reports that Maynard is engaged to Tyler Johnson.

"We're really excited!!" she tells Us. "He proposed to me at home and gave both Ricki and me rings. It was so sweet! Ricki loves him more than she likes me!"

Us says the two met "several months before" Maynard filmed The Bachelorette, but they didn't start dating until after her split from Holm.

E! reports that Johnson proposed right after the New Year at Maynard's house in Charlotte. Maynard has yet to mention the happy news on her website or Twitter feed, although she posted a blog note Tuesday that she's sure 2014 is going to be "the best year ever!"

She shared a photo of herself and Johnson on Instagram ringing in the new year, but didn't show off a ring. "It's going to be a good year," she noted.
