Our hearts are breaking for The Bachelor Season 12 star Shayne Lamas and her husband, The Dirty editor Nik Richie. The couple, who announced in January that they were expecting their second child, suffered a tragic loss when Shayne miscarried during emergency surgery over the weekend. As Shayne continues to recover in the hospital, Nik has issued a statement to concerned fans.
“We would like to thank everyone from the bottom of our hearts for the immense support we have received from our family, friends, fans, and media,” Nike begins. “It is really amazing how everyone has come together for Shayne, [daughter] Press, and I during this extremely difficult time.”
As for his wife’s condition, Nik reassures fans, “Shayne is breathing on her own now and doing better. We have high hopes for a speedy recovery.” TMZ had previously reported Shayne was in a coma, though later reports from her father, actor Lorenzo Lamas, contradicted those claims.
Naturally, Shayne’s current health status and the loss of their child during the second trimester must be taking an emotional toll on the couple, who married in 2010. “At this time we are still trying to process everything that happened,” Nik continued, “and we thank everyone again for giving us this time to heal.”
