Emily Maynard is feeling blue — but for good reason!

The former Bachelorettehas welcomed her second child, a son, she announced Thursday on Instagram.

“God is good. My heart can’t even handle it,” the new mom captioned a photo of her cuddling her newborn son, her first child with husband Tyler Johnson.

The baby boy’s name is reportedly Jennings Tyler Johnson, according to a Tweet by proud uncle Austin Johnson.

Maynard, 29 — who is also mom to Ricki, her 9-year-old daughter from a previous relationship — announced her pregnancy with a fun photo posted to Instagram in January.

“Too much pizza,” she playfully captioned the selfie, which showed off her blossoming baby bump.

In March, she teased the sex of her baby on the way with a snapshot of her gender reveal cake. But the former reality star kept it a secret until May, when she announced she and Johnson would be welcoming a baby boy to the family.

Even after finding out the sex, the couple were stuck on a name for their son.

“I told Tyler that [if] he gets to pick the last name for everybody, then I should pick the first name and if he wanted to pick the first name, then it can take my last name and be a Maynard!” the mom-to-be joked. “He did not like that. We’re still compromising.”
