Shayne Lamas Expecting 2nd Child Through Surrogate — Congrats
They have not given up!
After suffering a heartbreaking miscarriage in Feb. 2014, Shayne and Nik are expecting a second child again.
“Shayne is not pregnant [but] thanks to Dr. Smotrich [of La Jolla IVF Clinic], he was able to stimulate her ovaries to produce eggs which he converted to embryos,” Nik told Us Weekly. “Someone else is carrying our child. We are truly excited to expand our family.”
This is such exciting news, after undergoing such a horrific ordeal just seven months earlier. It was reported that Shayne experienced a rare freak pregnancy complication when doctors found that she was bleeding internally around her uterus. The former Bachelor winner underwent an emergency surgery, but it was too late for her baby boy who lost his life due to a miscarriage.
The baby was just 16 weeks old. After he died, Nik shared the heartbreaking information that he was able to hold his baby boy and say goodbye, but not until he named him — Rex Jagger Lamas-Richie.
Shayne and Nik are already the proud parents to one child, a 2-year-old girl named Press. Congrats, Shayne and Nik! We’re so happy to hear your exciting news!
