Life & Style Weekly keeps me updated on Utah resident (though likely not for long) Jef Holm and his fiancé Emily Maynard, who got engaged on the final episode of the most recent season of "The Bachelorette." Here is an update provided in an e-mail blast from the mag:
Just days after fans watched Jef Holm’s romantic proposal to Emily Maynard on the season finale of The Bachelorette, the couple took a trip to visit several villages in Ghana — where Jef’s company, People Water, funds the construction of a number of wells.
"We had the best time," Emily tells Life & Style. "Jef is the most humble person ever, so he would never say all the great things he does for other people, but to be able to witness it firsthand — it definitely made me fall in love with him that much more."
"I learned just how in love with Emily I am," Jef tells Life & Style about falling even more in love with Emily as he watched her hand toys out to groups of excited African kids. "She jumped right in and got involved!"
And the couple are planning to return to Africa in September — as a trio. Emily wants to bring her daughter, Ricki, "and make it a whole family thing."
