Emily Maynard Johnson Welcomes Son Gatlin Avery
Emily Maynard Johnson is a mom again, giving birth to her fourth child total and third with husband Tyler Johnson
It’s a boy — and he finally has a name!
Sharing a video of Maynard Johnson in a hospital bed cradling their newborn, the proud daddy wrote, “#4 here!” He also shared a photo of the baby “meeting big sis,” Maynard Johnson’s 12-year-old daughter Ricki from a previous relationship.
On Monday, both Maynard Johnson and Johnson took to Instagram to reveal the sex of their new addition — another boy, who weighed in at 8.5 lbs., and measured 20 inches — as well as share some sweet photos of their newborn son.
Along with the series of snaps came a plea for help — in the form of baby name ideas.
“God is so good… my cup runneth over… welcome New Baby Johnson to the world. If anyone has any good boy names send them my way! We need help!” Maynard Johnson wrote alongside a family photo.
By Wednesday, the couple had made their choice: “Gatlin Avery Johnson. 8lbs 5oz.20”. May you love the Lord and love the brotherhood,” Johnson captioned a photo of the newborn. “We finally came up with a name and were able to leave the hospital! Meet Gatlin Avery Johnson, the sweetest little brother this family ever could’ve asked for,” Maynard Johnson added Thursday.
On her own Instagram, Maynard Johnston shared a photo of a champagne bottle in her hospital room. She wrote, “Hospital camp out.”

Maynard Johnson, 31, shared her pregnancy news in late August, re-posting a clip from Johnson’s Instagram account showing her and Jennings walking along a street while enjoying ice-cream bars. A notable standout? The mom-to-be’s baby bump.
“Way too many tacos at lunch. Seriously though, as scared as I am to have 3 under 3, I’m so grateful God picked me to be the mommy to my kids and we can’t wait for number 4 to get here!” she wrote.
“This pregnancy has been filled with lots of hot wings, ranch dressing, an emergency appendix surgery at 6 months, and swollen ankles all day every day but I wouldn’t change it for the world,” added Maynard Johnson. “My little tribe can’t wait to meet their new brother or sister (it’s a surprise!) in the next couple of weeks!”

The newest member of the family may not be the last. In April, Maynard Johnson told PEOPLE that “once you get past two and you keep adding, it’s just like ‘Whatever.’ ”
“You could have 18 kids and it really doesn’t make that big of a difference,” she explained. “Your stroller gets bigger, but that’s it. I want to have maybe two more. Ricki is so much older, she’s just more of a help than anything else. So, we’ll see!”
