Emily paid tribute to her late fiance by naming their daughter after him.
The star first rose to fame as a contestant on Brad Womack’s season of The Bachelor.
Emily accepted a proposal from Brad, but was ultimately named the next Bachelorette after their split.

She became engaged to Jef Holms, though that relationship wasn’t meant to last either.
Emily met Tyler Johnson at church before becoming The Bachelorette.
Despite the fact they’re happily married now, Emily says she was initially ‘friend zoned’ by her husband.
‘I met him at church before I did The Bachelorette, he really wanted nothing to do with me,’ she told Good Morning America. ‘I told my girlfriend I met this guy and he could like not be less attracted to me, he was in the friends zone.’
The couple ultimately wed in 2014.
In addition to Ricki and their newest addition, they share sons Jennings Tyler, five, Gibson Kyle, four, and Gaitlin Avery, two.
