We wish we had better news about Shayne Lamas. After miscarrying the couple’s second child, the Bachelor Season 12 star continues to suffer complications from the catastrophic pregnancy. In a statement on his blog, written from the ICU where she is admitted, husband Nik Richie shares that things took another bad turn on Valentine’s Day when Shayne’s heart stopped.
“This has been the toughest week of my life, but my love for Shayne Lamas has grown tremendously,” Nik writes. “My wife is a true fighter. Her heart gave out on Valentine’s Day and we had to start the rehabilitation process all over again.”
The 28-year-old reality star was rushed to the hospital February 9 after collapsing in her home. After undergoing emergency surgery in an attempt to stop internal bleeding in her uterus, doctors lost the fetus and Shayne suffered additional complications. However, contrary to the earliest reports from TMZ, her family reports she was never in a coma and had been responsive shortly after coming out of surgery.
Despite the setback in her recovery, Nik seems hopeful about his wife’s prognosis. After thanking his wife’s doctor for saving her life a second time, Nik extended his appreciation to friends, family, and fans, for their prayers. “They are working!” he said encouragingly.
After some specific shoutouts, including his famous father-in-law (Shayne is the daughter of actor Lorenzo Lamas), Nik extended the biggest thank you of all to his wife, urging her to get well soon for the sake of their 2-year-old daughter. “Lastly, a special thank you to Shayne Lamas for not giving up,” he writes. “Press wants her mom back!”
Our thoughts are with Shayne and Nik during this difficult time.
