Selling Sunset star Maya Vander has announced she has suffered a miscarriage at ten weeks – just six months after giving birth to her still-born son, Mason.
The 41-year old reality star took to Instagram on Tuesday to reveal the devastating news to her 1.3 million followers.
Alongside a picture of her three-year old son Aiden sleeping, Maya wrote on her Story: “I had a very crazy week. Miscarriage after ten weeks following my still birth.
“But my kids and my husband are absolutely my blessing and I am so lucky to be their mother! They bring joy and happiness to my life! Hug and love the people that you care about. Don’t take things for granted!”

As well as Aiden, Maya and her husband David share daughter Elle Madison, two.
Just last month real estate agent Maya opened up about the still-birth during her show’s season five reunion episode.
Speaking to host and fashion designer Tan France, she said: “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 check-up 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.
As Tan asked her how she was doing now, she responded: “Much better, it’s been four and a half months and Mary mentioned earlier that time helps, and I think time does help.
“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”.
