This is the second child for the 28-year-old reality star, who is mom to 9-year-old daughter Ricki. Ricki's father is race car driver Ricky Hendrick, who died in a plane crash in 2004. He and Maynard were high school sweethearts and were engaged before his death.

Maynard and Johnson met at church, according to E! News, and got engaged last January. They married in June at his family's farm in Sharon, South Carolina.

"I'm just looking forward to building our life together as a family," she told People magazine at the time. "This is exactly where I'm supposed to be. And I'm excited to have babies!"

Maynard, who lives in Charlotte, North Carolina with her husband, was previously engaged to "Bachelor" star Brad Womack and "Bachelorette" contestant Jef Holm. She and Holm split in 2012.
