Emily Maynard and Jef Holm appear committed to working through their problems -- side-by-side.
One day after Us Weekly broke the news that the former Bachelorette, 26, had been unfaithful to her fiance, the pair stepped out together in her hometown of Charlotte, North Carolina, holding hands.
Earlier this month, the couple -- who got engaged in May in Curacao as Bachelorette cameras rolled -- ended their Pawleys Island, South Carolina vacay prematurely after Holm, 28, found explicit texts on his bride-to-be's phone to and from another man.
After reading the story in the new issue of Us Weekly on Wednesday, the water company exec's brother, Mike Holm, confirmed it was true. Despite the stay-at-home mom's shocking betrayal, he and the rest of the Holm family are still rooting for the duo.
"We all love Emily, too," he explained. "Mistakes happen, we all get that. I hope they can work it all out."
For all the details on Maynard's infidelity -- as well as the couple's explosive, August 19 fight -- pick up the new issue of Us Weekly, on stands everywhere Friday.
