Shayne Lamas has provided all of the details regarding the loss of her son 20 weeks into her pregnancy and unfortunately it is more devastating that previously reported. In an interview with In Touch Magazine, posted on Wednesday, March 5, Shayne, who starred in "The Bachelor" and "Couples Therapy," and her husband, Nik Richie, revealed that she didn't suffer a miscarriage but that her placenta was punctured by her son, who was actually growing outside of her uterus, attached to her bladder.

This meant that doctors had to perform an emergency hysterectomy to remove the baby and save her life.

“The doctors told me, ‘The baby is killing her. We have to remove the fetus or Shayne is going to die.' It wasn’t a miscarriage. It was them having to kill our child to save my wife," Nik said.

The news was too much for Shayne, who actually died on the operating table and was revived back after losing oxygen to her brain for two minutes, to bear.

"I screamed from the top of my lungs. You never think something like this will happen to you. I felt like someone hit me again and again and again," she said.

Despite the loss of her uterus and half of her bladder, Shayne and Nik, who are already parents to a little girl, are adamant about having more children. One bright spot is that doctors were able to keep her ovaries, which means that she can have biological children via a surrogate.

"I absolutely will have more kids," Shayne said.

Despite all that she went through, Shayne is staying strong for her daughter.

"Still the Queen of this house as I have a princess to raise!" she tweeted in late February, along with a snapshot of an inspiring message about moving on from tragedy stronger than ever.
