Selling Sunset’s Maya Vander shares tragic still birth news

So heartbreaking.

**Content warning: This article contains details of pregnancy and infant loss.

Selling Sunset star Maya Vander has revealed the devastating news that she has lost her baby at 38 weeks, suffering from a still birth.

Revealing the heartbreaking news on Instagram, the reality star said that she wanted to be as open about the tragedy with her followers as she has kept them up to date on her pregnancy until this point.

Alongside a picture of an empty baby basket, she wrote: “Yesterday was the hardest day of my life. I had a still birth at 38 weeks. I always heard of it but never imagined I’ll be part of the statistics. Instead of delivering a baby, I get to go home with a memory box… I do not wish this on anyone.

“What was a regular weekly checkup turned into a nightmare that I never imagine will happen to me.

“Given I share my pregnancies in the show I knew I’ll have to post about this and avoid the ‘when is your due date’ question. You will always be in our heart baby Mason.”

Maya is already mum to children Aiden and Elle, with Mason being her third baby. The reality star and realtor previously opened up about her miscarriages in the past.

On Mother’s Day last year, Maya shared a post saying: “Happy Mother’s Day to all the amazing moms out there.

“Two years ago, I had back-to-back miscarriages, now I’m few days away from having baby No. 2. To all the women who are trying to get pregnant, don’t give up and stay positive.”
