Shayne Lamas Releases Statement Following Miscarriage
Less than two weeks after suffering a miscarriage and slipping into a coma, 'Bachelor' alum Shayne Lamas released a statement thanking the public for their support.
"Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers. I've cried reading the expression of generosity and warmth from everyone," Lamas said (quotes via Us Weekly). "I'm out of ICU at Mission Viejo Hospital. I cannot thank the medical staff here enough for not giving up on me."
The Feb. 20 statement also addressed the support of her husband, whom she married in 2010.
"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," Lamas said. "Nik, your strength can never be measured. I love you."
Lastly, the mother of two-year-old daughter Press, asked fans to consider helping others in situations like hers.
"To everyone out there, please donate blood. You can save a life like mine," she said in her statement. "In loving memory of my son, Rex Jagger Lamas-Richie."
Lamas' husband, Nik Richie, released a touching letter to his late son.
"You saved your mother's life with your passing and I will never forget how much this means to me, R.J.," he wrote. "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."
