Emily Maynard Johnson Opens Up About Soon Having Two Kids Under 2: ‘I’m Excited for the Chaos’

08/05/2016 at 03:00 PM ET

Two years ago, Emily Maynard Johnson was mom to then-8-year-old daughter Ricki and newly wed to husband Tyler Johnson. Now, the former Bachelorette is also mom to 1-year-old son Jennings, and will welcome baby number three next month.

“I really have no concept of what it will be like,” Maynard Johnson tells PEOPLE of being a mother of three. “But I’m excited for the chaos.”

Thankfully, this pregnancy (Maynard Johnson doesn’t know the baby’s sex) has gone a lot smoother than her first two thanks to an important discovery: Diclegis, the first FDA-approved medication for morning sickness.

“With Ricki and Jennings, I was in and out of the hospital with morning sickness,” says the 30-year-old, who is a spokeswoman for the medication. “It was all day. I was throwing up the night before I had Jennings, and I was so sick that I couldn’t get off the bathroom floor!”

When it comes to babies, it’s the more the merrier for Emily Maynard Johnson!

The former Bachelorette is pregnant and expecting her third child, just seven months after welcoming son Jennings Tyler with husband Tyler Johnson, she announced in an exclusive blog for PEOPLE on Tuesday.

“Tyler and I are crazy,” Maynard Johnson, whose book I Said Yes is available now, tells PEOPLE exclusively. “I don’t think anything through. I said, as soon as Jennings is 1, I can’t wait to have another one.”

And Maynard Johnson, who is also mom to 10-year-old daughter Ricki, her daughter with late fiancé Ricky Hendrick, was ready even sooner than that.

“At my six week [postpartum] appointment, I asked my doctor, when can I have another one?” she says. “He told me I could start trying at three months. I didn’t think it was possible.”

Emily Maynard Johnson Opens Up About Battling Postpartum Depression As a Teen Mom: There Were Times ‘I Didn’t Want to Get Out of Bed’

02/25/2016 at 11:00 AM ET

When most teenagers are choosing colleges and partying with their friends, former Bachelorette Emily Maynard Johnson was a 19-year-old new mom, coping with the tragedy of losing the father of her infant daughter.

“The first couple of years were so hard,” Maynard Johnson, 30, tells PEOPLE of life as a single mom following the death of her fiancé Ricky Hendrick. “I didn’t know if I was coming or going. At the time, I didn’t know it was postpartum. I had never heard of that.”

It was only days after Hendrick was tragically killed in a plane crash that Maynard Johnson learned she was pregnant with their daughter Ricki, now 10.

“I read online that [intense emotions] can hurt the baby,” says Maynard Johnson, whose new book about her life, I Said Yes, is on stands March 1. “So I was suppressing those feelings. I tried to just look to the future and my due date.”
