Shayne Lamas reveals that her stepmom is her surrogate
Reality star Shayne Lamas, 29, has revealed that her stepmom, 28, has stepped in to be her surrogate. Shawna, 28, is the fifth wife of Shayne's father, Falcon Crest star Lorenzo Lamas, 57.
Shayne announced back in September that baby number two was on the way, but an article in Closer Weekly is the first time she has opened up about the identity of the surrogate carrying her son.
"Shawna's not just my stepmother," Shayne says, "she's like a soul sister. She's an angel that blessed my whole family, including my father." E! "I'm ecstatic to be pregnant," Shawna told the magazine. She is due July 10."It's the best thing in the world," she said.
Lorenzo Lamas and Shawna Craig wed on April 30, 2011 after five months of dating.
Shayne Lamas found reality TV fame as the winner of the twelfth season of ABC's "The Bachelor," and a show about her family, "Leave It to Lamas," aired on E! in 2009. She ended her engagement to "Bachelor" Matt Grant in July of 2008, and went on to marry husband Nik Richie in 2010. They have a three-year-old daughter, Press Dahl. The couple was expecting a boy last year, but Shayne had a miscarriage at 20 weeks and underwent an emergency hysterectomy.
E! reports that, "On Feb. 10, Shayne paid tribute to her son via Instagram: "I might not carry you in my arms but I will always carry you in my heart. Love, Mommy 2-10-14 lost a piece of my soul that day."
As she prepares to expand her family, Lamas explains: "It is weird. Somebody else carrying your baby is weird." She also adds, "I have just been given the biggest blessing in the whole world and I will always be grateful."
Shayne was Matt Grant's pick on the 12th season of "The Bachelor," though they didn't work out. She tied the knot with Nik Richi in 2010.
