Shayne Lamas opens up about the loss of her son.


Shayne Lamas is opening up for the first time, following the tragic loss of her son at 20 weeks pregnant.

“My son had to be removed to save my life,” Shayne tells In Touch, whose “healthy” 20-week-old son was growing outside of her uterus, attached to her bladder. After her placenta was punctured by the baby, an emergency hysterectomy removed him, Shayne’s uterus and half her bladder. “The doctors hadn’t seen anything like it.”

Recalling the moment doctors told her the news, Shayne tells In Touch: “I screamed from the top of my lungs. You never think something like this will happen to you. I felt like someone hit me again and again and again.”

As Shayne fought for her life in an induced coma, her husband Nik was left frightened and grieving alone. “The doctors told me, ‘The baby is killing her. We have to remove the fetus or Shayne is going to die,’” recounts her husband, founder Nik Richie, 35. “It wasn’t a miscarriage. It was them having to kill our child to save my wife.”

“She died on the table and they brought her back. The doctors said it was an absolute miracle,” says Nik. “There were two minutes where she lost oxygen to her brain. They said she could have brain damage. It was a nightmare.”

Now recuperating at her Orange County, Calif., home, Shayne is haunted by thoughts of her baby. One hopeful note in an otherwise unthinkable tragedy: Doctors were able to save Shayne’s ovaries despite the hysterectomy to remove her uterus. “I’ll be able to give my eggs to a surrogate,” she says. “I absolutely will have more kids.”

I suffered two miscarriages back-to-back in 2005, and that pain was horrific. Luckily, I was in my first trimester, and not further along, because I’m not sure I would have survived such a loss. I can’t imagine the pain and heartache of losing a child after 20 weeks, or even further along. To see the baby you were losing would be indescribable.

I think it’s even more tragic to read that Shayne wasn’t actually having a miscarriage, the baby was doing just fine (health-wise). So sad the position the family was put in, and the tragic outcome.

It’s been over a week since Shayne Lamas experienced a dramatic pregnancy complication which ended in the loss of her unborn son, and an emergency hysterectomy. Shayne is now out of intensive care, and has opened up for the first time.

“Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers. I’ve cried reading the expression of generosity and warmth from everyone,” the 28-year-old said in a statement. “I’m out of ICU at Mission Viejo Hospital. I cannot thank the medical staff here enough for not giving up on me.”

The Bachelor star, who is mom to 2-year-old daughter Press, went on to thank her dad, Lorenzo Lamas, and her husband Nik Richie. “Thank you to my father and his wife, my mother, my sisters, my grandmother and New York family, my husband’s family, and to my husband for never leaving my side,” she said. “Nik, your strength can never be measured. I love you.”

She ended it by thanking her fans who donated to give blood, and paid tribute to the son she lost. “To everyone out there, please donate blood. You can save a life like mine,” she said. “In loving memory of my son, Rex Jagger Lamas-Richie.”

Shayne and Nik named their boy after he died, and Nike wrote his son a letter. “You saved your mother’s life with your passing and I will never forget how much this means to me, R.J..In family, we sacrifice for each other. You gave your life for us. You showed me how to love. I need you to know that I held you, spoke to you, kissed you and that you’ll be remembered. You are perfect,” he continued. “You will always be my son. I’m proud of you, always. I love you, Rex Jagger Lamas-Richie.”

Okay, NOW I’m going to cry!

Nik Richie reveals Shayne had to have a hysterectomy after losing their son.

Shayne Lamas and husband Nik Richie recently tragically lost their 20-week-unborn baby. Now, Nike is revealing what he endured to TMZ, telling the site he had to name and bury his unborn child after it died.

Last week Shayne suffered a rare pregnancy complication, and had to undergo an emergency hysterectomy to save her life and stop the massive bleeding.

Nik told TMZ, shortly after the baby died a social worker and a priest visited him the hospital and asked if he wanted to know the gender of his baby. He said yes, and found out the baby was “a beautiful boy.”

But then Nik says, he was asked if he wanted to view his son to get closure. Nik says he nervously obliged and was taken to a room where his son lay. Nik says they asked him to hold the baby while they prayed.

But it wasn’t over. Nik was then told he needed to name his child so they could fill out a birth certificate. Nik, who was overwrought with emotion, told them he always wanted a son named Rex, so he named the boy Rex Jagger Lamas-Richie. He chose Jagger because of Mick.

Nik says he’s glad he got to see his son but it was the hardest thing he’s ever done.

As for Shayne … Nik says she doing better but — after a medically-induced coma and a cardiac arrest scare — she’s still in ICU and in danger.

Nik wrote a letter to his son, that he asked us to share. (You can read it here)

I didn’t realize she had to have a hysterectomy. How tragic. Not only did she lose her child, but she won’t be able to have any more. My heart breaks for them! I can’t imagine what they must be going through. I hope Shayne makes a quick recovery!
