The former Bachelor star Shayne Lamas has been away from the spotlight since she had her baby in July 2015. After all, Shayne & Nik’s got a lot of work to do as parents of two. The couple were rumored to be a part of reality show “The Real Housewives of Orange County” but Nik Richie dismissed this offer stating in an interview with Radar Online,
“I don’t want to be on RHOC. Partying with grandmas doesn’t sound fun to me. Plus, there has yet to be a success story from the Housewives franchise. Everyone ends up in jail or divorced trying to create drama to maintain their fame and paycheck.”
Born as Shayne Dahl Lamas on November 1985 to actor Lorenzo Lamas and Michele Smith, this Cali beauty found her place in the spotlight after winning the 12th installation of reality stint “The Bachelor”. Although she had been in ABC sitcom, General Hospital before, the reality stint was her golden ticket to fame. After winning the show, she was briefly engaged to the bachelor, Matt Grant before going separate ways in July 2008, stating they were both headed in different directions while Shayne went on to pursue acting and Grant went back to London as a bachelor.
Shayne Lamas has appeared in many movies and tv shows; Air America, General Hospital, Leave it to Lamas, Monster Night, The Bachelor: London Calling, The 13th Valley, Deep in The Valley, In The Pines, Couple’s therapy and many more.
“What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.”
Well this doesn’t seem to be the case for Shayne and husband Nik who married in April 2010 at the Little White Chapel in Las Vegas after 8 hours of their first meeting. Nik Richie is an American blogger and author who is the founder of the infamous site TheDirty.com where you can talk trash about almost everyone. The couple had their first daughter, Press in 2011. In 2014, Shayne suffered a miscarriage due to uterine rupture which caused her to stay in coma for two weeks. The actress underwent a hysterectomy which completely obliterated her chances of becoming a mother again.
Apparently this is when Shayne’s stepmom Shawna Craig stepped in as a surrogate mother when the couple were really desperate for a second baby. In a short conversation with DailyMail, Shawna said since she had worked in fertility and been an egg donor before, she had no problems being the surrogate mother for her daughter. In an interview with Closer Weekly, Shayne expressed her gratitude for Shawna stating,
"Shawna's not just my stepmother. She's like a soul sister"
"I was shocked that my dad was on board with this, to be 100 percent honest, but I'll always be grateful."
Well that’s the love of parents for children, it just keeps on growing and does not see untraditional or traditional, and it’s ready to go beyond every boundary.
The beautiful Cali beauty Lamas has an estimated net worth of $1 million.
