Shayne Lamas: ‘Bachelor’ Winner Loses Baby, in ComaBy: Kimberly Ripley - February 10, 2014
Shayne Lamas, winner of season 12 on The Bachelor, has reportedly lost her baby and is in a coma following a serious pregnancy complication. Paramedics arrived at the home Lamas shares with husband Nik Richie in Orange County earlier on Monday. Shayne had collapsed and was taken to the hospital.
Lamas reportedly lost her unborn baby during surgery and is now on life support in a coma.
This baby would have been the second for Shayne Lamas and Nik Richie. The couple has another daughter, Press Dahl Lamas-Richie, who was born in November of 2011. The loss of this baby will no doubt have an impact on Nik and Shayne’s little girl.
On Monday afternoon doctors reported that Shayne Lamas was not “breathing on her own,” however they were “optimistic” about her dire medical situation. Her father, Lorenzo Lamas, is by her side, along with Nik Richie.
It was only a few weeks ago when Nik Richie confirmed that Shayne was in fact expecting their second baby.
“Both Shayne and I are super excited for our second child,” the co-founder of celeb site TheDirty.com said in one of his blog posts. “I’ve grown so much as a father and Shayne is an amazing mother. Together we are a great team and love each other very much.”
It was only about three weeks ago when Shayne Lamas posted the following on Instagram about her pregnancy.
Hopefully Shayne Lamas emerges from her coma and makes a full recovery. It will no doubt be devastating for her to learn that she lost her baby. It is far more important, however, for her to survive this harrowing ordeal and to be around to raise the couple’s other little girl.
Prayer are no doubt being said from around the world for the former Bachelor winner as she struggles to survive.
