Shayne Lamas, best known for winning season 12 of The Bachelor, has suffered a miscarriage and is now in a coma, due to complications from her pregnancy.
TMZ reports that Shayne—the daughter of soap opera star Lorenzo Lamas—was 16 weeks along with her second child with her husband, blogger Nik Richie, when paramedics were rushed to their home after Shayne collapsed.
Once she was taken to a hospital, the doctors determined that the 28-year-old was bleeding internally around her uterus, and specialists were called in to determine the cause.
Unfortunately, the baby was lost during surgery.
The site added that Shayne is currently in a coma, and unable to breath on her own—although doctors are optimistic about her recovery.
Despite winning Bachelor star Matt Grant proposing to her on the season 12 finale, Shayne went on to marry Nik in Las Vegas on April 18, 2010—after knowing each other for just 24 hours.
On Nov. 11, 2011, the pair welcomed their first daughter Press and were excited about adding a baby to their brood.
“I’m very happy to announce that my wife, Shayne Lamas-Richie, is pregnant.” Nik wrote on his blog on Jan. 19. “Both Shayne and I are super excited for our second child. I’ve grown so much as a father and Shayne is an amazing mother. Together we are a great team and love each other very much.”
Our thoughts are with the Lamas and Richie families at this difficult time.
