Selling Sunsets Maya Vander shares with fans she had a stillbirth at 38 weeks
Selling Sunset star Maya Vander has shared the tragic news that she suffered a stiibirth at 38 weeks.
The 39-year-old TV personality logged onto her Instagram page on Friday to tell fans about "the hardest day of her life".
In her social media post announcing the devastating loss, Maya posted an image of a memory box given to her in hospital alongside a lengthy caption.
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 this and avoid “ when is your due date “ question. You will always be in our heart Mason Miller".
Unsurprisingly, Maya's post was inundated with hundreds of messages from her Selling Sunset co-stars and fans.
Chrisshell Stause added: "This is the unimaginable. It’s hard to find words. My heart aches for you and your family. You are surrounded by so much love. Here for you for absolutely anything you need."
Amanza Smith wrote: "My sweet Maya. My heart is breaking for you and Dave. This is unimaginable. Please know I’m here and anything I can do I will. Holding you up in my prayers and with so much love."
While Brett Oppenheim said: "Maya I’m so sorry. I can’t imagine what you’re going through, but I’m proud of you for sharing, and allowing everyone to see your vulnerability, which I think will empower others to better cope with loss.
"I love you. I’ll call you soon, and I’ll be in Miami soon so I can give you a much needed hug."
The real estate agent has bravely spoken in the past about her fertility struggles, revealing she had two miscarriages before welcoming son Aiden in April 2019 and daughter Elle Madison in May last year.
She announced her third pregnancy in July this year, and the moment she told her co-stars appeared in the fourth season of Selling Sunset.
Speaking to Us Weekly in November last year, Maya said: "Both me and my husband are very busy, which is a good thing. I do like a big family. That being said, I don’t know. We’ll see. I’m 50/50 with that.

"My husband works from home and obviously with real estate, I work from home excluding showings. But I spend a lot of time with the family…
"I just put my son in daycare three weeks ago for, like, half a day in the morning. It’s a small class. So far, so good, so hopefully it will stay this way. And my daughter, she’s 6 months old, and we’ve been full-time parents."
Maya has been open about the couple's fertility issues in the past and was seen encouraging other women, who were keen to start a family, to never give up.
