Shayne Lamas, Nic Richie Expecting
Although it appeared that Lamas was announcing that she was pregnant on the episode of VH1 Couples Therapy Reunion that aired earlier in the week, Lamas and Richie are actually expecting a child via a surrogate.
"Shayne Lamas Richie and her husband Nik Richie appeared on VH1 Couples Therapy Reunion on September 3rd and although the editing made it appear Shayne is pregnant, Shayne is not pregnant," a rep for the couple said in a statement to E! News. "Shayne and Nik are thankful to Dr. Smotrich of La Jolla IVF, as he was able to stimulate her ovaries and produce eggs which he converted to embryos.”
In the statement, Lamas added, “Someone else is carrying our child. Shayne and I are truly excited to expand our family."
Back in February, Lamas suffered a miscarriage when she was about to enter her second trimester. After collapsing at her home in Orange County, Lamas was rushed to the hospital, where it was determined that she was bleeding internally, reported TMZ. During the emergency surgery, doctors were unable to save the baby.
Lamas and Richie, who wed in April 2010, welcomed their first child, daughter Press Dahl Lamas-Richie, in November 2011.
