Trigger warning: This article discusses stillbirth and baby loss
Selling Sunset’s Maya Vander announced she has suffered a miscarriage, six months after having a devastating stillbirth.
The Netflix realtor revealed in December that she had heartbreakingly lost her third child at 38 weeks and described it as "the hardest day of her life".
And now the 39-year-old has shared the sad news that she had a miscarriage on her Instagram stories on Tuesday (21 June) with a picture of her son Aiden, three, as he slept.
She wrote: “I had a very crazy week.
"Miscarriage after 10 weeks.. following my stillbirth.. but my kids and my husband are absolutely my blessing and I am so lucky to be their mother!! They bring joy and happiness to my life!!
"Hug and love the people you care about. Don't take things for granted!"
The reality star is married to David Amar, and they share two children, Aiden and daughter Elle, two.
Her announcement comes six months after she revealed she had a heartbreaking stillbirth on her social media with a picture of a memory box given by the hospital.
At the time, she penned: "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 imagined would happen to me...
"Given I share my pregnancies in the show I knew I'll have to post this and avoid ‘when is your due date; question. You will always be in our heart Mason Miller."
She previously spoke out in the past about her fertility struggles, revealing she had suffered two miscarriages before welcoming son Aiden in April 2019 and daughter Elle Madison in May 2020.
Earlier this year, Maya opened up about her tragic loss during Selling Sunset's much-anticipated reunion.
At the time, Maya told how she struggled to watch the latest show as she was 22 weeks pregnant at the time of filming, explaining that her child died in a “freak accident” following an occurrence of umbilical cord compression.
Joining her fellow realtors in the studio, Maya said: "It's been four and a half months and time helps. I want to say thanks to each and every one of you, whenever s**t hits the fan, everyone was so kind here.
"Life happens, we're filming reality, we don't know how things will happen. I was 38 weeks, and it was a freak accident."
She continued: "We just got the autopsy back and it was just a bad accident with the cord. Mixed with some swallowed placenta.'
"But I'm doing much better and I have my husband, he's amazing. My kids are great. They keep me going, work and I'm busy. "I don't have time to sit and cry all day long, I have my moments, that's part of grief, and just take this opportunity to raise voice for stillbirth and pregnancy loss."
