After a week of travelling for work, I am sad to be closing this gallery… here is the official announcement of Jef and Emily’s break-up via People Magazine:
Despite a happy ending on The Bachelorette finale in July and the hope of building a life and a family together, Emily Maynard and her fiancé Jef Holm have ended their engagement.
The pair open up about the split in exclusive statements to PEOPLE:
“I am sorry to tell you that Jef and I have, indeed, parted ways,” Maynard says. “It was a very difficult and heartbreaking decision.
“As you know, at first I wasn’t sure that I should even be The Bachelorette, but I am a hopeless romantic and I do believe in the show. I have no regrets because I did find love and shared an incredible journey with a really special person – and you know what, we tried our best because the love between us was so real.
“I have nothing but respect and love for Jef and his family, but ultimately we are just at different points in our lives.
“I’ve learned so much and I’m grateful for all of the support I’ve received. I’m excited and hopeful for the next chapter in my life with my daughter, Ricki. I do hope that you will respect our privacy and allow us the time we need to heal.”
And Holm tells PEOPLE:
“Meeting Emily on The Bachelorette was an incredible experience, we’ve had quite the journey. I’ve never loved someone so much in my whole life, Emily is the best person and mom I have ever met. She opened up her world to me and I fell in love with her, [her daughter] Ricki, her family and the Hendricks.
“She has a great group of people who surround her. What we shared was completely genuine and real and it breaks my heart but we have decided to break up.
“Emily will always have a special place in my heart. I don’t regret a single second I spent with her or Ricki. They both have been a huge part of my life. Who knows what tomorrow will bring but we are moving on to the next chapter of our lives.
“Emily and I are great friends and I hope we can continue to be friends forever. Everyone wants a salacious story to break, but the truth is we are just two people who fell in love and tried our hardest to make it work. I will always love her.”
The official confirmations follow weeks of rumors that the couple, affectionately known as “Jemily,” was on the verge of splitting up.
In recent weeks, Holm and Maynard have spent significant time apart.
Holm, who relocated to Charlotte last month, has been spending more time in Los Angeles promoting his company, People Water. Maynard, meanwhile, has been going about her life quietly with daughter Ricki, 7, in Charlotte.

OK, to address the latest rumours and numerous questions sent to me: I do not know. But I will not believe I know anything until Jef, Em or one of the Holms confirms either way. That is all I have to say on the matter. And on to pictures:

Amazing story of an amazing little girl, shared by Emily:
“When I was in CA last week Ricki and I had the honor of getting to hang out with one of the most incredible human beings I’ve ever met. Even with everything going on in her life, Avery has the most positive and hopeful outlook on life that everyone who comes in contact with her walks away feeling inspired. She is such a light to everyone around her, I can only imagine how proud her mom is of her. At just 11 years old, Avery has taught me more than I could ever teach her and I feel so blessed to be able to call her a friend! Check out her blog at braverynow.wordpress.com. Who inspires you to be better and love a more faithful life?”
… Emily and Ricki prepare for some serious cheerleading:

BEST video recap of this whole season (and maybe ever in Bachelor/ette history), thanks to the hilarious Jimmy Kimmel:
Here is a selection of my favourite pics from the After the Final Rose show (where Jef’s family was in attendance and Emily got to finally meet his Mum!) and we got a glimpse into their budding family’s life:
…their media tour in the days following the airing of their engagement:
but my favorite pictures are of the two of them in casual outfits, just hanging out or walking through the streets of New York (with friend and Producer Pete carrying Jimmy Kimmel’s 1F gift!) where Jef got caught “making out with Emily’s hand”:
Here is the team (and newly engaged JEM) on their way to Ghana…
Waiting for connection in Amsterdam (can you spot Emily?):
And always ready to please their fans, even on a long trans-continental flight!
