Emily Maynard and Jef Holm are the talk of Bachelor-nation these days, ever since the news broke that the couple were splitting up. While sources recently said that Emily was miserable, more have since come forward to reveal that it was in fact, the The Bachelorette winner Jef Holm, who was not ready to be a dad, thus the failed relationship.
While the split of Emily Maynard and Jef Holm may not have come as a shock, fans have been wondering what the real reason for the breakup was. Could it be that Jef Holm was not ready to deal with Emily’s daughter, Ricki? That’s exactly what one source told Radar Online recently, claiming: “Jef just wasn’t ready to be a dad to Ricki and didn’t realize the commitment that would be required of him by having this little girl in his life.”
Hmm, wasn’t that the same line we heard about Brad Womack? It sounds very familiar – a likely excuse, perhaps? Meanwhile, the same source goes on to explain that Jef and Emily would like to remain friends, adding: “They are extremely saddened that the relationship didn’t work out.”
And just in case you’re wondering about any of the photos that have surfaced of the couple together, there is no reconciliation happening. “They are trying to remain amicable though and he was getting his things ready to pack up and leave North Carolina over the weekend when they were photographed together. Jef will be headed back to Utah in the next several days,” the source concluded.
