Former Bachelorette star Emily Maynard, 27, has a new man in her life!

In Touch has learned that the mom of 8-year-old daughter Ricki has been keeping her relationship with Tyler Johnson, a Charlotte – based philanthropist, under wraps. “They’ve been dating for a while,” a source tells the mag, on stands now.

The source says that Emily’s so insistent on keeping her relationship under wraps that she's even told parishioners at her church that Tyler is her brother!

“He’s really her boyfriend,” the source tells In Touch. “Emily’s been trying to keep it a secret.”

Emily was formerly engaged to the Bachelor’s Brad Womack, but the duo split shortly after the show.  As the season 8 Bachelorette, she got engaged to Jef Holm, but the pair broke up later in October 2012.  Emily shares her daughter with NASCAR driver Ricky Hendrick who tragically died in plane crash in 2004.
