Former Bachelorette Emily Maynard and husband Tyler Johnson celebrated their third wedding anniversary with beautiful messages of love and support on Wednesday, June 7.

The season 8 franchise lead, 31, posted a montage of photos on Instagram set to Zachary Kale’s “Marry Me.” The reality star’s photos feature snaps of the lovebirds and their baby sons, Jennings, 2, Gibson, 9 months, as well as Maynard’s 11-year-old daughter, Ricki.

“Happy anniversary to the person who has changed my life in all the best ways,” Maynard wrote in the Instagram post. “Nothing makes me happier than knowing you are a part of God’s plan for my life and I couldn’t love you more @mtylerjohnson.”

She then joked, “This video took me 18 hours to make so I hope you don’t expect a present too. Also, I’m pregnant in 99.9% of these pics. Thanks for the cute babies!”

Johnson followed up with a black-and-white image from the couple’s wedding and an accompanying note. “3 years ago today God gave me immeasurable wisdom when he lead me to marry the most incredible woman,” he wrote. “From this, He has blessed me with my daughter and our two sons and I can’t be more grateful for His grace. I’m so humbled reflecting back on our 3 years. love you so much.”

Maynard was previously engaged to Nascar driver Ricky Hendrick, who was killed in a plane crash in 2004. Following the tragedy, she learned she was pregnant with their child. After a failed engagement to season 15 Bachelor Brad Womack, she starred as the season 8 Bachelorette and got engaged to Jef Holm on the finale, but the pair later split.

The I Said Yes author finally met the love of her life, Johnson, in church. Johnson, an automotive management consultant, proposed in January 2013, and along with the five bands he offered Maynard, he gave her daughter a ring as well.

The couple married in June 2014, and last year they purchased a home in Charlotte, North Carolina. Maynard told People that more babies are a definite possibility. She told the mag: “I definitely think we’ll have at least one more. [My husband] wants two more.”
