Emily Maynard has plenty of advice for Juan Pablo Galavis, the recently named Bachelor who will be coming to a television screen near you in early 2014. Like Emily, we don’t know much about Juan Pablo just yet, be we do know that he has a daughter. This means that, between his involvement with The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, plus his single parent status, Juan Pablo holds quite a bit in common with Emily Maynard. Given these shared attributes, Emily thought that she might be able to provide the new Bachelor star with a little insight into juggling the complicated roles of reality star and single parent.
First, Emily advised viewers to cut Juan Pablo Galavis a little slack — and that he should do the same for himself. “It’s a really hard situation to be in anyway, being the Bachelor or Bachelorette, but adding being a single parent into the mix makes it that much harder.” However, Emily adds, Juan Pablo should also be sure to look at the benefits of his unique situation, for “it’s also a blessing because children are brutally honest and keep you very grounded.”
Emily feels that the best way for Juan Pablo to remain grounded is to continue to maintain that close relationship with his daughter. ”I just say keep talking to her every day and keep her to the forefront of your mind in all your choices, and I’m sure he will!”
