The former “Bachelor” contestant revealed the news on Wednesday. “Shawna’s not just my stepmother. She’s like a soul sister,” she told Closer Weekly. “She’s an angel that blessed my whole family, including my father.”
This is the second child for Shayne and her husband Nik Richie.
Last year, the couple experienced tragedy when Shayne lost their unborn baby because of a rare uterine rupture. Doctors had to perform an emergency hysterectomy that left her without a uterus and half a bladder.
Although, she isn’t carrying there child, she still feels an emotional connection.
“I might not carry you in my arms but I will always carry you in my heart,” she captioned a photo on Instagram. “Love, Mommy 2-10-14 lost a piece of my soul that day.”
