Single dad Doug Clerget and Emily Maynard quickly connected over the unconditional love for their children as he arrived at the cocktail party with a special message from his 12 year-old son Austin during The Bachelorette season 8 premiere on Monday (May 14).
The 33 year-old insisted on reading the letter from his son to Emily. It was a super sweet and simple gesture that might have earned him the first impression rose. In the letter, the kid told Emily his dad is the best dad in the whole world because he always tucks him in at night.
Emily was so touched that she confessed she could tell Doug is a wonderful daddy by that letter alone. Nevermind the contestant probably forced or bribed his kid to write it. Anyhow, I was touched. Doug is a hottie! And he seems to be pretty good with kids. Who could ever resist?
At the first rose ceremony, Emily admitted she felt really comfortable with Doug and handled him the first impression rose to the dismay of the other bachelors, who were just happy villain Kalon McMalon didnâ€™t get it. This promises to be an interesting season.
