What a great-looking couple. Congratulations to emily and we're so excited for you. Thank you. Welcome to "good morning america." Thank you so much. I loved reading that this is somebody who you had known long before you stepped into the mansion, so it must have been very difficult for him to watch you go through, not once, but twice. Well, he never watched it and, you , we were really just friends and we got to know each other, met at church and, you know, we just -- I think that's why our relationship is so good now because we started out as friend. Started out as friends but i guess you didn't see him in that light in the beginning because you went on the journey. I did. I did and, you know, I think that's just a true testament's to god's time and how perfect it is. I couldn't have planned it better. Something to be said about creating that solid foundation of friendship and going from there. A great inspiration to women everywhere. I want to ask you about juan pablo. It is juan-uary. What about his prospects as you watch the show. I mean, I think he is just the cutest thing. I've been rooting for him since desiree season and I think he has a good group of girls. So do you in your gut do you think that one of those girls is his girl? I am not the person to ask. My gut has been wrong too many times for me to have an opinion on that. Robin is giving me that, don't you go there, girl. I am not the one to ask. No, you didn't. No, you didn't. Hey, I know that you're designing jewelry and so before we talk about yours, I know a lot of our viewers would love to see your ring. Yeah, yeah. Care to share. Yeah, of course. Beautiful. Thank you. It's not traditional. No, I just wanted a stack of bands and I just wanted like gold bands but he did a very good job. Better than I thought. Speaking of doing a good job and the guy, we have a little surprise for you. Yeah. On skype right now is your bachelor no more, tyler johnson, are you there? Yay. Skyping in from north carolina. Good morning. Hey, good morning, guys. How are you? So can you tell us how you proposed? Yeah, so we got through christmas and the new year and had the girls back home and wasn't long after I went over there one morning and woke the girls up, told them I was going to cook them breakfast and kind of put them back to sleep and brought them downstairs and proposed to both her and nikki. He's the cutest thing ever. How is the reaction of your daughter? Oh, she is so excited. She wakes up saying where is tyler? I mean she has her wedding guest list. Already wondering when I get pregnant does she get to skip school? She's already working this thing. You're wearing pieces from your jewelry collect. Will you design your wedding bands for the two of you. I think I should leave that to somebody who knows -- I think I should stay far ay from any engagement rings or anything. I don't want to jinx it. Tyler, thank you for allowing us to join in this morning. You look great. All dapper there and we wish you just the best of luck with the wedding which we hear is maybe -- soon, yeah. Thank you so much, tyler. Thank you, guys. Have a good day. And will you do me a favor.
