“Best buddies already,” the proud mom captioned the shot. “Y’all my heart is going to explode.”
In the photo, Jennings (whom the family affectionately call JT) and older sister Ricki are cuddled up together on what looks like a bed, the tiny baby boy nestled in a green-and-white polka dot blanket.
JT is the first child for Maynard, 28, and husband Tyler Johnson, whom they welcomed last week, sharing a first photo on Thursday, July 16.
The Season 8 Bachelorette exclusively revealed to Us Weekly this past January that she and Johnson were expecting a tiny bundle of joy, and she later revealed in May that Ricki would be getting a baby brother.
“I’m just really looking forward to getting up with him and feeding him,” she told WCCB Charlotte at the time. “Ask me after he’s been here for a month if I’m still excited, but right now, that’s what I’m looking forward to.”
The former reality star, who had Ricki with her late finance Ricky Hendrick (he passed away tragically in a 2004 plane crash) added that this second go-around will be different because she has Johnson to lean on.
“I raised Ricki by myself and it’s just been the two of us for so long,” she told the local outlet. “I’m just really excited to be present. When Ricki was born, it was a really hard time in my life, and I was so young that I really don’t think I enjoyed it or soaked it in as much as I wish I could have.”
Maynard and Johnson, who met at church, wed in a secret ceremony at Johnson’s parents’ farm in South Carolina last June.
