) **** I can’t imagine Emily Maynard won’t instantly win over Brad Womack and make it far this season!In addition to being absolutely gorgeous she’s overcome a crippling tragedy and has emerged a strong woman with a beautiful young 5-year-old daughter.

Ricky’s father Rick Hendrick talked with Scene Daily in June of 2005: “Emily came over to the house the night after the memorial service and told us [Hendrick and his wife, Linda] she was pregnant,” Hendrick said. Emily Maynard’s name surfaced in the tabloids in late 2006 when rumors linked her to NASCAR driver Dale Earhardt, Jr.
“At the lowest time of our life, it was like a miracle that happened for us because we get a chance to have a piece of Ricky left.” “I can’t describe how happy and how excited we are,” Hendrick said.

dated for a brief while prior to Emily dating Ricky Hendrick.
