Selling Sunset’s Maya Vander, 40, has revealed she has suffered a miscarriage just six months after the stillbirth of her third child, Mason.
The reality star updated fans via her Instagram Story with a photo of her son Aiden, three, sleeping.
“I had a very crazy week. Miscarriage after 10 weeks…following my stillbirth..😢,” she wrote. “But my kids and my husband are absolutely my blessing and I am so lucky to be their mother!! [sic]”
“They bring joy and happiness to my life!! Hug and love the people you care about. Don’t take things for granted!🙏🏻” Maya — who also has a daughter, Elle, two, with husband David Miller — said.
The Selling Sunset cast member often shares updates about family life with her fans and just last week, revealed how she is coping after losing her son at 38 weeks pregnant.
“I have women (who might be going through the something similar) ask me how I’m doing after my stillbirth & pregnancy loss and how I’m able to continue pushing forward with my daily life,” she wrote on Instagram.
“Everyone handles loss in their own way, but for me I find the key is to stay busy – a healthy distraction always keeps me going.”
She then concluded the post with some “advice”.
“My advice is get to work, socialise with people, get your body moving (endorphins🤍), and talk to someone.
“I know the pain of loss won’t heal overnight, but today is a great day to begin or continue furthering the healing process. 🙏🤍👼”
Selling Sunset’s Maya Vander Spoke About the Loss During the Season 5 Reunion
During the season five reunion of Selling Sunset, Maya revealed that “time” helps her to move forward.
Speaking to Queer Eye’s Tan France, she revealed she had her “moments”.
“I have my moments, that’s part of grief, and just take this opportunity to raise voice for stillbirth and pregnancy loss,” she said. “I think part of healing is getting pregnant again. I hope I will, we’ll see.”
