Our prayers go out to Shayne Lamas and husband, Nik Richie, as they grieve the loss of their unborn child. The reality star was 20 weeks along when complications arose in her pregnancy.
Lamas revealed exclusively to In Touch Weekly that her son was growing outside of her uterus and had attached to her bladder. He had gotten so big that he eventually punctured her placenta, and she began bleeding internally. She was rushed to the ER with excruciating stomach cramps, and that is when an emergency hysterectomy was performed.

After the surgery, the doctors allowed Richie to hold his tiny baby. He named his little boy, Rex Jagger Lamas-Richie, and tells TMZ that it was the hardest thing he’s ever had to do.
During this tragic ordeal, The Bachelor alum also had dad, Lorenzo Lamas, by her side. Shayne and Nik are parents to a beautiful 2-year-old daughter, Press Dahl Lamas-Richie.
