WARNING: This article contains spoilers regarding Season 8 of ABC's The Bachelorette starring Emily Maynard.
ABC's The Bachelorette is only in its fifth week, but new spoilers claim that Emily Maynard is already engaged.
The beautiful 26-year-old reportedly got engaged on May 11 just after midnight. Although the groom's identity has not been disclosed, the final bachelor reportedly got down on one knee and proposed to Maynard with a four-carat Neil Lane diamond ring worth approximately $90,000.
It was truly a one-of-a-kind fairy-tale experience for her, a source told the tabloid. The final bachelor was led through a grand sky-blue gate to where Emily stood. The proposal took place in the middle of the night, which gave it a more intimate feel.

The engagement purportedly took place in the cobblestone courtyard at the Kura Hulanda resort on the Caribbean island of Curaçao and was filmed for the finale of The Bachelorette, which will air on July 16, according to Life & Style.
Emily is still happy and engaged, a friend later told the tabloid. She is ecstatic. She's over the moon and loves her ring. Ricki is really happy, too.
It wouldn't matter how much I was into a guy or crazy about him -- if he weren't at a point in his life where he wanted to settle down and step into the role of being a stepdad and husband and all of that, I would have to say no thank you, Maynard told the magazine.
Whether or not this spoiler is true has yet to be determined. There is still one month left until the Final Rose Ceremony episode airs and the world finally finds out who Maynard picked to be her Prince Charming.
Other spoilers have been circulating recently, hinting at who the last man standing might be.
WetPaint honed in on a recently published article in Us Weekly about Maynard. Although the article delves into rumors about Maynard's diva personality, plastic surgery procedures and gold-digging habits, the article also reveals some information about her relationship with Bachelorette contestant and race car driver, Arie Luyendyk, Jr.
During shooting of The Bachelorette, Maynard reportedly learns that Luyendyk dated Bachelorette producer Cassie Lambert, in 2003.
She was livid, the source tells Us Weekly. She cut him right then and there. Her ego was shot. The source also claims Emily briefly stopped speaking to the producer. She was Emily's confidante. Emily felt betrayed.
The focal point of this revelation is, of course, she cut him right then and there. However, WetPaint notes that this might not necessarily mean an elimination.
And now, Us is saying Emily cut Arie right there, says WetPaint. But it sounds like Arie didn't go home right away, so maybe he tried to make another play to win her heart -- people come back in the end for another shot all the time. So, it's still not really clear what's going to happen after Em gets to her final three.
If Luyendyk does, in fact, get eliminated then that leaves the purported final two men -- Sean Lowe and Jef Holm.
WetPaint previously uncovered the final four bachelors Maynard chooses. We already know who makes it into her final four: philanthropist sk8er boy Jef Holm, hunky Texas fitness model Sean Lowe, Dutch-born car racer Arie Luyendyk, Jr. and Chicago sports marketer Chris Bukowski, wrote WetPaint. The website also added that Maynard sends Bukowski back home to Chicago, narrowing down her top three to Holm, Lowe and Luyendyk.
According to the Bachelorette Blog, a source close to Lowe contacted the blog and revealed that Lowe is chosen as Maynard's last pick at the Final Rose Ceremony.
