Although Emily Maynard's engagement with Brad Womack ended up fizzling, looks like the woman who captured the Bachelor's heart will get to create a fairy tale of her own.

ABC officially announced that the single mom will star on The Bachelorette when the tables are turned, and she gets to select one lucky guy out of the pack of 25 bachelors!
Before the 25-year-old bachelorette met Brad, she became engaged in 2004 to NASCAR driver Ricky Hendrick. He tragically died in a plane crash that October, which left her pregnant with their baby.
Putting the pieces together and forging ahead with her daughter, born in June 2005, Emily will be looking for a man who makes her laugh, doesn't take himself too seriously and can be her best friend. According to ABC, "Emily is hoping that the third time is the charm."
While the busy full-time mom is raising her 6-year-old daughter, Ricki, and volunteering with children's endeavors close to her heart, she's looking for a man who shares the same spark she has for life.
Do you think she'll find her soul mate on the next installment of The Bachelorette? Sound off in the comments!
