How Jef Holm “Blindsided” Emily Maynard After Their Split

No one was more surprised to hear details about Emily Maynard's split with Jef Holm than the reigning Bachelorette herself.

In the latest issue of Us Weekly (on stands Friday), a source reveals that single mom Maynard, 26, was shocked to learn that her fiance, 28, was shopping a tell-all about their split to magazines. "Reporters were calling her asking, 'Will you comment on the story?" the source reveals. "She was blindsided."

An insider says Maynard (mom to Ricki, 7) "is sad and embarrassed about Jef."
