Emily Maynard And Jef Holm’s Break-Up: How This Might Affect Ricki

By Joanna |

Jef Holm and Ricki

Breaking up is always hard to do, but when children are involved, it’s even worse. Actually, when children and reality television are both involved, it’s heart-breaking.

As I’m sure you’ve probably already read that The Bachelorette’s Emily Maynard and Jef Holm have decided to call it quits after only two months of blissdom together, when Jef proposed to Emily on the island of Curacao and in front of the entire country on the show that put these two lovebirds together. Sadly, not everything that starts on a television show is made to last.

What really concerns me though is how Emily’s 7-year-old daughter Ricki is going to cope with the break-up, too. After all, Jef was there for her on almost a daily basis and even promised to be the “best step dad ever.” The young entrepreneur even volunteered to coach Ricki’s soccer team, was a “car-pool dad” in the making, and even shared sweet play-time moments with her at Emily’s home. While I’m sure that he seemed more like a big brother than an actual father-figure to Ricki, Jef is surely going to be missed by the little girl.

Tell us Babyrazzi readers, should Emily have been involved in a show like The Bachelorette as a mother knowing that two hearts might be potentially broken if her relationship didn’t work out (as is the case wit her and Jef?). Take a look at our photo gallery of Jef and Ricki together and tell us your thoughts.

Always There

Jef tweeted one time that he wanted to get a "Best Stepdad Ever" t-shirt to wear at Ricki's extra curricular events. What would Ricki think now that he's not going to be there anymore? Photo via Twitter
