Emily Maynard Johnson is enamored with her charming son. The former Bachelorette, aged 37, delightedly shared a cute photograph of her 16-month-old son, Jones, who beamed while seated in a shopping cart.

Dressed in a gray beanie and a matching onesie, the little one placed a hand on the cart, gazing up with a broad grin as his mom captured the adorable moment. Maynard Johnson is a mother to six children—Ricki (18), Jennings (8), Gibson (6), Gatlin (5), Nola Belle (2½), and Jones. She shares this lively brood with her husband, Tyler Johnson, aged 33.

In October, the celebrity mom had a relatable parenting moment as she prepared to celebrate Halloween with her kids. She shared a photo on her Instagram where Jones, dressed in a boxing costume with his name on the gloves and waistband, flashed a smile. In her caption, Maynard Johnson humorously remarked that it was the only picture she took during the entire Halloween day, questioning how others manage to get their families to coordinate outfits and smile for a cute family picture.

In August, the proud mother posted a heartwarming photo on her Instagram celebrating Jones. The image captured Maynard Johnson smiling as she carried her son, deftly balancing her phone between her fingers. Jones laughed at the camera, posing in his mother’s arms with one hand touching her phone. The caption expressed her joy at not stopping at five children and conveyed her deep love for Jones.

Jones, born with Down syndrome and a rare congenital colon abnormality in August 2022, became a source of immense gratitude for Maynard Johnson. Despite the initial shock of the Down syndrome diagnosis, the mother embraced Jones wholeheartedly. She shared her ongoing journey of processing the situation and expressed trust that everything would turn out alright. Maynard Johnson marveled at Jones, describing him as the easiest baby and their greatest blessing. She emphasized her commitment to experiencing Jones as an individual, not defined by any differences, while continuing to learn about Down syndrome.
