Selling Sunset star Maya Vander has bravely opened up about the death of her third child during the Season Five Reunion.
The 40-year-old real estate agent, who has been on the Netflix show since the beginning, sadly lost her third child in December last year at 38 weeks pregnant.
Taking to Instagram at the time, Maya posted a photo of her baby’s clothes and captioned it: “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 about this and avoid the “ when is your due date “ question. You will always be in our heart baby Mason,” she added.
During Selling Sunset: The Reunion, host Tan France turned to Maya and asked her how she was doing.
“Much better, it’s been four and a half months and Mary mentioned earlier that time helps, and I think time does help,” she told him.
“You know, life happens. We film reality, we don’t know how things will happen. I was 38 weeks and apparently it was a freak accident.
“We got the autopsy report about a month ago. It was just a bad accident with the cord, mixed with some swallowed placenta.”
Maya continued: “But I’m doing much better, and I have my husband, he’s amazing, my kids are great and they keep me going.
“I have work and I’m busy so I don’t have time to sit and cry all day long. I have my moments, we all do, and that’s part of grief.
“So that void is still there and I think part of my healing is getting pregnant again, and I really hope I will,” she added as Tan described her as a “superwoman”.
